Well, the Camaro project got a lot more expensive this year. Bought new Hedman Hedders for her, went to start the prep of having a new exhaust system put in today. Got both old headers off and noticed there are 2 different heads on the motor. Passenger side has round ports, drivers side is square port. Going to yank the motor this week and begin tear down to make sure nothing else was done improper, but donít have high hopes. Going to end up doing aluminum heads, bigger cam, and probably have cylinders honed, new bearings and gaskets all the way around. Figure if Iím going to start tearing into it might as well go all the way!  Headers look good though

 Good choice...Ēwhile youíre in thereĒ :chuckle:
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

Itís beginning to be that time of year for the winter projects to get rolling!! Whatís on everyone lists??
Update since last post; heads were matched, it ended up being a slice of the gasket was stuck on the head that I didnít see in the poorly lit shop. Felt like an idiot after that. Got the exhaust system done with a pair of Flowmaster super 44ís. Couldnít be happier with the job that was done. Everything is ran nice and tight, super clean and out of the way. Now we are pulling the motor for sure as it started burning oil pretty bad. It hazes at an idle pretty consistently, and you can smell it good when you give her the pickle. Going to drop in a bored out and built 454 we are starting on soon. Will keep the 396 for a future project for our son whoís arriving this spring (thatís what Iím telling the wife to get away with it anyway) Iím thinking we need to build him a big block Chevelle, but sheís certain if we go that route thereís a good chance we will be grandparents far too soon 🤣
