Tuning is not a problem, I have an AutoProm I can burn chips with. Of course these can be changed, but now you run into tuning problems. Online I've heard they were 8. Elbert ---- Elbert Clarke elbert. There are a few options.
From years as a mechanic, I can tell you there are good ones and bad ones. I have had a lot of questions about rockers and I have had a lot of customers having issues with all the cheap rocker options. Any suggestions on what I should buy or what cam and heads are best for this engine? But a wideband O2 sensor and handfull of jets will take less learning. Any Cat Back exhaust will flow better than the factory exhaust and increase efficiency, just keep the exhaust pipe size to 2. New answer; Need to check the fuel pressure regurlator. Though the swap is fairly straightforward, be forewarned that vehicles with the computer controlled 4L60-E automatic overdrive transmission will need additional work. I am going to the Edelbrock Aluminum heads and intake next.
I can already tell the motor has lazy timing. I had a pretty good idea what I wanted to accomplish with my 55 Chevy truck 400ci Chevy motor and I called Crane. I'm not worried about city miles- I know they will suck. . So, I'm asking for a link to any thread with a high torque engine build or any information to help achieve my goal.
I have to admit, I was a skeptic. First thing to remember is the computer is rather limited in stock form, by todays standard it is slow. This just address what can be done without doing anything to the computer. If any one has done these mods and have had to change the chip please let me know. I feel that the 3. The drawback is that it was never really meant to be installed on a 350, and for that reason is restrictive on a 350. Anything bigger you will need a change in chip.
I can get a Edelbrock tbi performer intake and Power aid tbi spacer used in good shape for cheap. I got about 12-13 in the city and 16-18 on the highway after that. The stock V8 converter stalls at 1400 rpm which is very low. Simply remove the old manifold, drop the new one in its place and install the carburetor. I clipped this picture from my latest Hot Rod magazine on choosing the size of your exhaust pipe.
The rings never seated in, so a good reason to put in the new parts. I've already been doing that for the Beretta. I own a 95 tbi 454 big cam, intake, large oval port heads, most all bolt ons and had computer probs until I installed an adjustable map sensor. Because this motor is remaining mostly stock, matching the heads and intake aren't too important, but yes, they'll compliment eachother nicely. I ohmed out the knock sensor - totally dead, no resistance. People either skip this entirely, or skimp on the parts used or go crazy. I did a napa rebuild kit but that doesn't replace much.
The truck had 250k miles on it before i put the rebuilt 350 in it. Of course, the simpler solution is to simply replace the fuel pump, which will serve the dual purposes of simplifying installation and replacing the worn fuel pump with a new unit. Therefore for a truck engine,or any stressed application,I would recommend the 350 over the 305,altogether separate from the power issue. I hope that this info is helpful. I have tested several springs and had a custom spring which I have listed on my. I was wondering if any of you guys have modified engines like this and if so what would you suggest doing? The compression is really what has me worried about the bang for the buck.
Those making 375hp or more do have to resort to 454 injectors though. Not sure if the 95 is the same as the 93. I figured the throttle body itself would be the limiting factor. It has a new O2 sensor and a fresh set of plugs. It gets up a goes pretty good empty but i would like some more hp for hauling light loads and long hills.
A good free flowing exhaust does typically need a 3 wire heated o2 sensor conversion to maintain its temperature. There should be a sticker on the radiator shroud that gives timing and spark…. I guess I'll try my luck with that. Choose one that provides the rpm range that you want your engine to run in. On the exhaust side, things get worse. On the average 350, I like a intake runner in the 165-180cc range and I like my air flow at.
