    I'm having a 350 short block rebuilt and I'm trying to choose what cam and stall converter to go with. The shop rebuilding the engine suggested I go with either of the cams linked below. My horsepower goal is 400+ but that might be a stretch...

    Hi there Nova enthusiasts! I am having a problem with my 1964 Inline 6. First of all, I just purchased the car last summer (2013). I was driving the car when all of a sudden it just stalled out. According to the seller, the car has a new carburetor, new fuel pump and new battery. So what...

    Hi guys, I am new to the site and a pretty young gun when working with older cars. I have a 1974 Nova 250 6 cylinder with a single barrel (rebuilt just installed).

    Hey guys, I just picked up a rebuilt 454 for less than I can build one for and am looking for a recommendation for a cam. It was built 5 years ago and has been sitting in a garage, wrapped in blankets to keep it clean. I purchased it for $1100. It's a 77 with low compression (guessing 8.5:1)...
