thanks guys....as i said, everything in my 66 malibu is bone stock, besides the headers, 2.5 dual exhaust, performer dual plane intake and edelbrock 600 cfm carb...not sure what the rear end has in it(10 bolt), but have the glide. I have a th350 trans with a shift kit to replace the glide...
Are you telling me if I upgrade the cam and springs, I can make this little 283 scream? Do I have to build up the internals in order to accomplish 6500 rpm? or will stock rods, crank, pistons, handle this?
If i do set up with the th350 trans, what rearend ratio to you recommend?
Sorry for all the questions guys, hehe...but I'm limited to the 283 for now, dad doesn't see the point if something runs fine and gets from A to B.
