    So indeed there are those trying to help you, on the same part some of the guys on here are older rodders with more knowledge than you and I combined or will ever learn, I promise that, and they get a kick out of a little humor even if its in bad taste for the person asking the question, so roll with it they'll come around I am sure you being a yound man give a joke once in awhile where the person your kiddin' doesn't like it. Keep rodding, stick around and have fun but read between the lines sometime!
    oh no asking questions and stuff is fine. so far there is one person i have a problem with regarding disrespect and calling me a "poser" which is very upsetting.

Sure would be nice to see more young people getting involved in our sport. Maybe we could have more patience...
    thanks man

    So now we know that the $10,000 check didn't relate to this car------good, maybe we can reach a mutual understanding of what he has and what condition its in.

    As for the sound of it running on U tube? scrath that off the list----------
    Full roller engine-well at least rockers-
    overheated because of fan clutch----------maybe, maybe not, overheated? probably------appears numerous missing bolts in accessories including rad support and coolant overflow tank which doesn't appear to have anything in it so coolant probably low
    Appears fuel line runs to rear so must be efi electric fuel pump but is carbed?
    Sparkplug wires over top of valve covers with headers usually results in burnt wires
    Now-what was the original question? Any way, young man (I'm 74) welcome aboard-I probably have done more Camaro engines than these othe rguys combined and I don't believe that you have a $10,000 crate engine, but will try to help you any way I can. So ask away -

    Sorry to see you've had a rough start of it "Tie"... we can be a cynical group at times, but when most of us were 17 we couldn't scratch two nickles together.
    So be careful when you mention the amount of time and hours spent 'cause many of us have done that for decades! And you come on here asking for help with a motor that's cost you 10 grand... okay, many will take it at face value.. but today at 17 how many fellas are spending that much or have that much to put into a car when still in school or maybe just out of???

    I don't want to imply your being less than truthful, I don't even know you! But, I'm asking for you to look at the situation from where we sit, if you got 10K in just the motor, what's the car cost? And all at 17? Again, not sayin' your being less than truthful... but there are 2 sides and you'll also need to look at things from the other side.

    SO gives us a break, be honest with your answers and know there will be a lot of info tossed your way. These folks have info and knowledge and will share it with you for the asking, just share some pictures once in awhile..

    The picture was up late last night in post #48 and after Jerry's post #49 it was taken down. It was a picture of the engine bay and as Jerry pointed out there were a lot of things missing. To me it was evident that it was a dressed up small block and as Jerry pointed out not a $10,000 engine. As I said earlier, "I smell a rat", no disrespect just the plain truth.
    I have a ton of admiration for a youngster trying to work on older American iron and glean information, but as John Vernon said in "The Outlaw Josey Wales", "Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining".

    What I saw of the motor didn't look like cheap parts? And, there are reasons for a motor to stop pulling at a given rpm other than the build. Even the best built motor can suffer from timing and fuel issues.
    Personally, I believe he was just a little misguided, and we missed an opportunity to coach a young lad along his journey.

    If he (or anyone) is looking for a specific answer they should start a poll--not show an U tube video about exhaust pipe sound----------

    He didn't ask, hint, positively state, or humbum any thought except that he was 17, could make a sound video, and he had a car that someone wrote a check for 10g for motor work???????

    The whole car may have been worth 10 grand and that's debatable.

    Don't overlook that he told everyone that it was Canadian Dollars, so that $10K is $7,200 at today's exchange rates. I'm not saying yes or no about the validity of his claims, but several people did not do very good with their basic read to comprehend skills with this thread, IMHO.

    I wasn't aware that the dollar was that weak compared to Canadian dollars. Still, $7200 should build a pretty stout sbc. Tech asked for numbers from the engine, not forthcoming and too many things that didn't jive. If the intake was warped that would sure indicate that it wasn't the only thing warped and he took it to a shop to have the intake milled???? Too many variables not addressed.

    I don't disagree that he could have done better on his end. Regarding the dollar's strength, the Canadian dollar is weak, so that it takes only US$0.72 to get CN$1.00 - or the other way, they have to plunk down CN$1.39 to buy a US Dollar's worth of goods.
