    Default 1969 Malibu Sports Sedan

    ...the craigslist ad...I saw a family car...with some "personlizations"...235/60R15 on vette 15x8 rallys



    ...for starters I went back to stock, 195/75R15 on 14 x 6s



    ...went cuckoo at the swap meets and shopped for looks- here's one...

    235/60R15 on 15x12 Welds with 1" spacers and 205/60R15 15x10 Welds with 1" spacers



    ...then +2 drop springs in back and 1 1/2 coil-cut in front...

    I just can't get behind the "bubble" tire look on a muscle car.

    All the go-fast parts you just listed, now you're speaking my language.

    Are you doing a 350 swap, or are you going to use the archaic 307?

    I reverse engineered the 307 and removed factory limits and enhanced original designs.

    For the head, chamber and port I modeled every 1/10th inch every .00002 of a second up to 6700.



    Parts change the stock compression ratio, lift-to-diameter ratio and area under the curve and moved Mach index up almost 1800 rpm to allow air enough for 372 hp at 6200.

    ...a natural progression...





    ...did the 15x8 'vette Rallys

    ...

    ...these are 255/50R16s on the Southern Ways 16x12s and 205/55R16s on 16x8s



    I can go 13.4 and 10.4 all-in but this "barely rubs"...

    ...thank you, man!

    Static is still ridin' pretty-smooth and I'm so happy with it so far for my daily-driver!

    I've got the center caps but I'm so afraid they'll be too tempting to those looking...

    ...I think I'd really like 205 or 195/50s for the fronts on this set...
