Hi Guys. I am putting together another 455 to go into my 66' Skylark. 25 years ago I put together a 70' SF code 455 and installed it in my Car. I had just finished my apprenticeship and was on a budget back then. ( I am an aircraft mechanic by trade but started in Automotive) All I did at the time was throw some fresh bearings in it, HV Oil Pump and some (But Not all) oiling mods, and a fresh GM Stage 1 cam for the bottom end. It did not even get rings. Later on I installed Poston Headers and S-Divider intake. It runs an Edelbrock version of a Quadrajet, the Performer RPM 850, that I tuned with some help and parts from Cliff Ruggle. I have a MSD distributor. Current transmission is a TH400 with shift kit and 2300 Stall. Rear is a 12 Bolt with Eaton Posi and 3:42 gears. It has run very well all these years and has served as a good car for car shows and cruises as well as a few trips to the Drag strip. Lays plenty of rubber to have fun with the kids on cruise night. I have managed to run a 13.4 in the quarter but more often than not 13.5 or 13.6 at about 101mph. It would be nice to pick it up to mid to low 12s though. Engine still runs ok but it is getting old and I of course would like some more power. I have a TH200-4R to go in likely over this summer with some CK tuning and a 2600/2800 Stall convertor. Here is where I am at. I have another 70' SF code 455 out of a Riviera that I have pulled down and it looks to be in similar shape as when I built the last. Clean low mile engine with pretty much minimal bearing wear, good Pistons and Cylinders. I make more money these days but have other cars to build and a family to feed so I am going to do another low budget build on the bottom end. I plan to do all the normal oiling mods with a fresh oil pump. I will do new rod and main bearings as well as TA cam bearings. Pistons have been cleaned up and I will install new rings and do a quick cylinder hone. I am using the 70' heads and they are getting Stage 1 Valves and some basic home porting. I have some TA 1125 Dual Valve Springs to use. The heads will get whatever work needs to be done. I am generally planning to keep it under 6000 RPM. I will likely buy a new Aluminum Intake (Probably an Edelbrock B4B but consider a SP1) I will reuse the carb. I need to pick a cam. Looking for something more aggressive than the Stage 1 I have in the current engine. Noticeable idle lope would be nice. Must have vacuum for brakes. I will run fresh stock rocker arms. I will using the car the same as I have been. I need to be able to take it out on the highway to go to car shows and visit buddies in nearby cities. I have come up with a list of considerations. Some may not be available too quickly. There are a couple here that I like the look of better than others. The T/A 290-94H seems like a good choice out of these. I certainly will consider others. Does anyone have experience with any of these cams? Are there any outside this list I should consider? Any advice is appreciated. Keep in mind there are not unlimited funds here. Thanks.
