    Sweet Nova, and that "Hey! Look At Me Red" is hot, too! That body style is my favorite of all the Nova's made. Thanks for coming back and closing the loop.

    Maybe I should have started a new thread but....here goes

    Building up a new 327 for my 66 Nova street car. You guys helped with the last build so for some fun, I thought we could toss it around again.

    Car is a 66 2 door hardtop built as an L79 clone. 327, Muncie M21, 12 Bolt Moser unit with 3.73:1 Posi. Street tire, 245/60/14 on Vintage Torq Thrusts

    Car is a weekend cruiser around town. No trips to the drag strip.

    I found a nice ZI(L79 code) recessed oil filter Nova block for cheap. Long story.
    Bottom end is built

    Forged crank .010” over, Eagle 5.7” rods, KB Forged flattops
    Good rings and bearings
    Balanced, align bored, square decked, torque plate honed at .040”
    Using TrickFlow aluminum Double Hump copy heads painted Chevy orange haha
    175 cc runner, 60cc combustion chamber, 10.3:1 compression with .040” quench
    Heads Flow well for a small runner 260 on the intake and 200 CFM ex at .500” lift
    Will use good push rods and roller rockers
    Z28 winters intake and 650 Holley double pumper
    Vintage Appliance headers and 2 1/2” exhaust

    I want a good sounding, hard pulling camshaft. One that’s not dead until 3000 RPM. No power brakes, AC, etc. Will run 91-93 octane

    I have a cam in mind. But....I’d like you guys to tell me what you would use if it’s yours. I don’t care if you say flat or roller, solid or hydraulic. Just what you would do if it was yours. I’ll chime in an tell you what I picked out as well. See if we are close.

    Thanks in the past, and in advance....

    This is a Chevy II block for those that haven’t seen them. They have the oil filter recessed for clearance and a different position for the zBar stud boss.

    An RV grind is good for smooth running, low end torque and good vacuum.

    212° Intake / 212° Exhaust
    .440'' Intake / .440'' Exhaust
    110


    I had this in a 350 TPI and I then changed it out for more low end torque. I actually picked up some HP and mileage also.

    It was a roller:

    192 201
    .450 .468
    114

    Is the intention to stay "old school?

    Why not go LS? Many benefits with the LS... Just curious. For a cam, I'd be pounding on the doors of the usual big names. And I'd make sure it's a roller cam too.

    If money was no object, and it was all mine.. I'd be looking for a big block. As the old saying goes, there's no replacement for displacement!

    If I'm going old school it would be an Isky RPM 100 same as Duntov 30-30 solid lifter cam

    Car is built to look like an L79 Nova that's why I didn't chose an LS or a big block. I'm building an LS for my CJ7 presently.

    My cam choice at present is a Hydraulic Roller from Howards

    278/278 225/225 .525"/.525" lift with 1.5 rockers or .560" lift with 1.6 ground on a 110 LSA or possibly 108
