Hi,
I have a 71 Chevelle with a stock 454 out of a 79 1/2 ton suburban and would like some advice. My car has 273 gears turbo 400 transmission with headers. I have another set of heads casting #215, an edelbrock C396 intake and a 3310 Holley carb. What if not all of these parts should I use. I know I need more gear, but how much more? The car is a daily driver but would like to run a respectable number at the track. Any and all help would be appreciated.

We ran the Summit brand 228/238 .540/.540 114 LSA
It would have done better at the track with an RPM intake (it had a peanut port Performer intake) and a bigger exhaust (has a 2.25" exhaust)

All things considered,mid 13's @ 102 MPH was cool by me.
It runs and feels strong on the street,thats for sure.
This is actually my friends Malibu,but I put the motor together with him and I sold him my old heads and picked out the cam.
