I have an L88 that I put together from parts 38 years ago. The Car(68 Camaro 396) was damaged badly in an accident and so the engine was never installed and just stashed in the corner of the garage. Since the restro parts are easy to find now,I am putting the car back together. The original L78 is loog gone having sold it around 1982. Since gas quality is a concern ,I decided to make some changes to the L88.
I decided to stroke it to 4.250 and change the pistons to 10-1 Icon's.
I went with a comp cams 11-219-4 FT solid. [email protected]
and .595 lift. I love solid cams.Old school I know.
This will be 100% street. Just a toy that will likely only get 200 miles a year on it.
What would be the expected power range and what would be the redline on this?
Do you think it will run fine on pump gas? Is the cam too much? Its not too late to exchange it if needed.
