This is my 1959 283 Idling with a Crane 268 Z-cam. Cam specs are 218/230 @ .050 268/280 ADV .459/.486 lift 112 LSA. The engine is bored +.040, flat top pistons, '416 heads, Summit intake, and an Edelbrock 1406 carburetor. It runs about 10:1 compression and burns with a stock HEI distributor and coil. The Exhaust manifolds are stock for a 1980 GM truck as is the y-pipe and cat. The Exhaust outlet is 2 1/2" and the cat is my muffler right now.
Supercharged 283 chevy
283 supercharged sbc .030 over, 12% overdriven, Rhs heads, Lunati solid
flat tappet 632 lift, balanced, forged, two 600 holleys. Engine has to be
partly taken apart later to be painted and finish polishing, just wanted to
hear it, while I am getting my 57 chevy ready. I also have a 458 c.i. set
up like this small block but gas will be a little cheaper besides this
little fast reving sbc sounds really kool, I think I am going to like it.
Engine built by G&M Automtive, Thanks Mikey.

A cold start of the 1959 283. Not really a cold start I guess as it is 70
degrees here but the engine is cold. Anyway, here it is with some details
about it. Thanks for watching!
