Default 1990 IROC project

I've been bracket racing and running s/st since the early 80's and watching s and ss thinking I'll never be able to own one of those. Well I found this Camaro and decided I'm gonna try to build a stocker. Today I went and loaded it up and brought it home. I don't know if it has a 350 or 305 but I'll build whatever it is. I'm open to any suggestions you guys have. when I can I'll post some pics.

Mike,

the 3rd is a good package with plenty of combination options. Will you build it as a tuned port engine?

Welcome, you took a similar route that I did before class racing. Good choice of car too, if it's a 350 it will be a natural I class or the 305 will put it as a natural K. The 305 are a little more attractive right now I believe as the 350 was hit with 4 up this past season causing us to add 50 more pounds.
Don't know what your budget is but being in Texas I would have to recommend you speak to J Allen Sherman for your power at Trumble racing engines. He's a member on the board and has turned out some really fast stocker motors. Good luck.

Cooter, I'm kinda hoping it's a 305. The index looked a little softer to me. And you're the second person to recommend J Allen Sherman.

I'm thinking of breaking out the flat good and building me a 305 too! Looking forward to seeing some pics and by all means don't be afraid to ask for advice in the tech section, lots of knowledge on this board.

Hey Cooter, what year is your car? What gear are you running with the 350?

I finally got around to taking a picture of the IROC. I've already started removing street equipment. It's waiting it's turn to go in the shop.

My car is ran as a 91-92 with 4.88 gear. Most everyone with fuel injection that I'm aware of runs the 4.88, guys running carburetor combos use the 5.13

Thanks for the compliments cooter, mike feel free to contact me on my cell anytime, 225-717-1461 or my shop number 713-477-4430, I've personally race a 305 1986 camaro in stock in the late 90's to 2000's and ran good with it and Shane Burkett is a customer of mine and has an extremely fast TPI 350 combination that we did for him, so either route you choose we can fill the need.
