Like them wheels. Dude at the swap meet had em for 40, said he made a few passes and dudn't like em(radial SLICKS). Holes were deep, backing his story. Had 33 on me and offered it to im. He countered with 30😜.

They were 29x9's. Hadda do a little heavy tool fender clearancing😬

It was a 25.8" MT ET Street Bias ply with an open rear, 2.1 60 ft. The 204/214 cam was two small, I think very low 9's were in it. Either way, the 88 CSC is gone. The new 400ish hp/tq Olds 350 going in the lighter 70S should run much faster even with a 3.08 posi. This car will be a long distance cruiser that will eventually see the track.
How did you like that cam? I have one in a box, and some Vortec heads that I am thinking about using

Too mild for anything much over 9 to 1, I was at 9.6 to 1 with .065" quench. I had to retard part throttle timing and use very cold -8 NGK plugs. If you are going with good flowing Vortec heads, they will tolerate and need less timing but I would go would go with more duration to take advantage of the heads. With a better cam, I could have ran well into the 8's in the 1/8.

I had Vortec heads with the GM "hot cam" (lukewarm) which is 218-228 on a 112 with 9.1 compression. Werked good but was not optimal for the sitchyation. Was all done by 5000. Ran 7.6xx inna 1/8
