Ok , some of you are in on this already...but I thought I'd throw the question out here too.
The short cut of the scenario is an imaginary car...but will state what I'm dealing with...although by accident
I had the motor already built before I got the car....all balanced and fresh, never run.
So pretending the car and motor are already one unit...what do you think needs to be done too improve the combination.
The imaginary car is a 1970 SS454 ...nice car with a near perfect paint and interior with 14" SS wheels and BFGs
It has a 454 with forged internals, LS6 heads
out 10:1 compression that have been professionally ported. A stock solid lifter LS6 camshaft.
It is a turbo 400 car with 3:31 gears and air conditioning.
It has stock cast iron manifolds, and 2 1/2 " exhaust .
I built he motor for another project, and like I said this is an imaginary car. However it is almost exactly what the car and engine would be if I were to combine the two, and I already have them both.
It will be very nice and look 99% stock. (black with white skunk stripes, white interior, buckets, auto shifter and console.)
What changes would you make if you bought a car like this...$ not a real factor (within reason, add 5K for mods if needed or not?).
