Default My car

Ok, I know its not a Civic, But after i get a Civic and mod it I'll be sure to post it here

Well anyways, I have a 77 Monte Carlo. It had a 305 in it but I have now switched a 454 out of my 72 Chevelle SS into the Monte Carlo. I have dual flowmasters with chrome tips. The engine is stock but I'm going to mod it. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas. Money isn't an issue at all I want the best.

you should really look into a chevy forum to get better tips on modding it. i would say get some good aluminum heads, intake and a good carb. put on headers and you would be pretty good to go.

No you're not. I had a 84 Z28 that I put a 327 in about 4 years ago. That thing was a beast. But then I had to become a family man. It's all good. I enjoy my imports just as much as domestics. Just as long as it's not a Chevette. [:'(]

Your big hold back on HP is your heads there probably oval ports so I would find a set of rectangular port heads and have screw in studs installed so you can install guide plates and use roller rockers. A good intake is a performer RPM air gap it’s the hottest duel plane out there right now. As far as a cam I would suggest a comp cam Magnum 270 or the 280 there as big as I would use on the street with a big block. With the cam your going to want a good stall converter with around 2,500 RPM stall I would get a TCI with a anti balloon plate just incase you decide you need NOS. I would use a Holley 750 double pumper or a 750 mechanical secondary speed demon. DUI makes a great HEI but if you want something really hot I would use a Mallory comp 9000 unalite with there coil and a high fire ignition. I like flow tech headers there cheep and work great and are the only brand besides hooker that I will buy. use 3.55 or 3.77 gears and this will be a quick car there are going to be other little things like your going to probably want and install new rings, bearings, seals ect… this is just a guess but I would say with the following parts you should be around 450+ HP and be able to hit a mid 12 if you can get the car to hook up at the track.

people who say 'money is no issue' are generally pipe dreamers.
