that thunderbolt is ugly as hell, but I have a friend with a 400 horse Camaro, It eats gas though, he can almost pop the wheels off the ground :o

I know, I saw a program on the Thunderbolt. However, it truthfully had well over 425 horses. And it ate up all the Hemi Challengers(I think that's what they put the Hemi's in at the time). And the fastest run for the Thunderbolt was either a 11.4 or 11.6 1/4 mile.

this is why the import scene is just a passing fad.

Anyone know the 1/4 mile times for a stock 1970 Chevelle SS 454? Hp and torque would be nice too.

There was an internal memo floating around GM about the actual HP figures from the LS6... Something about it being rated at 420 HP, while in actuality it was putting out in the neighborhood of 600 HP. The company brass was not happy nor were the many widows created by such horsepower...

Not bad for a company that previously had refused to release any car with a HP to weight ratio over .12

That Chevelle was rated at 450hp and that was rating was pretty close to the actual #. It ran low 13's at best in the 1/4 mile, it was a heavy car. The HP figures for the Camaro ranged from the 150hp range for the 6cyl all the way up to the 425hp special edition 427 models available only in the Yenko, COPO and another model. The 350 and 396 models were rated from 250 to 375 hp and the 302 was rated at 295hp although it was underrated. The 302 handled the best and revved up to 7000+ rpms. It was also much light than all the others and was able to pull high 13's in the 1/4 mile. most of the 350's would run in the mid to low 14's and the 396 powered cars would be mid 13's. The Yenko and COPO cars usually ran low 13's however there were some figures in the high 12's. As for which car the Hemi engine came in, it was just about every MOPAR vehicle except for the compact Dart and Valient. It was rated at 425hp and actually was capable of putting out over 500hp in stock form with some carburator tuning. A hemi powered charger was able to knock off low 12 second time slips with proper tuning and no aftermarket parts. However, most hemi cars would run high 12's to mid 13's depending on what car it was in, because as you know something like a Plymouth Belvedere convertable with a Hemi engine no matter how much HP you have could never go THAT fast weighing in well over 4500lbs.

You forgot the L-88 427. Solid lifters, aluminum heads, rated at 435HP but closer to 600

The L-88 427ci was never available in the Camaro. However, I do believe the L-89 was or may have been available.

yes, L-89 as well as the L-78 were available in the camaro but they were 396's with the L-89(375hp) having aluminum heads, specific Holley carb, and a different tranny. The L-88 WAS available in the camaro but only in the '69 Nickey camaro.
