This is a idle clip of a customers SBC 358 with a custom roller cam. The
build started life with a 4-bolt main, bored .040 over, then it was filled
with nothing but factory GM Performance Parts that included a GM steel
crank, GM Bowtie connecting rods, Mahle flat-top pistons that acheive
nearly an 11:1 compression ratio, a set of vintage GM Phase 1 cast iron
Bowtie heads, topped off with a GM Bowtie intake manifold and a Holley 750
double Pumper Carb. The camshaft is a custom, hydraulic roller grind that
was spec'd especially for this customer's vehicle, so that his license
plate would be an accurate description of the engine, as well as the car.
