From what I remember, they were good from about 1800rpm to about 5500 rpm. I surprised a few people othe street back then...LOL

I know heís watching from a better place. Thanks!

You are correct...Dave is in a better place. His wife still has the black L78, It's amazing.


I will be following along...

This stroker probably will peak out around 6k anyway so that's perfect. I put my faith in the engine builder, he has a ton of experience and some pretty accolades to say the least!

Being a Day 2 build I knew I needed to do something with the hood. The standard flat hood on my car is in great condition but I wanted something a little more "in your face" rather than something a little more "sleeper". I ended up with an OER Stinger hood. Overall we were very surprised with the quality of this hood! It fits very nice, especially after a little massaging. Looks killer with the hood pins. I was torn between this and something a little more "70s" like an "L88" hood but the stinger has always caught my eye!

I'm a huge fan of the L88 hood, but that Stinger hood looks great and probably fits the lines of a first gen better than almost any other hood except maybe a factory cowl induction. Loving the build.

Thanks! I have a steel cowl hood on my lemans blue 68 and I love it... Just seems like EVERYONE has one. This will be a little more unique. I definitely don't see many "Day 2" type Camaros at local shows, mostly pro touring type builds.
