Default 1994 Camaro 4L60E 3.4/3400/3500 Build

Hi Everyone
I'm new here

Getting ready to start my own 3x00 build and have some questions.

Here is what I'm planning:
3.4 block
3400 pistons (crankshaft?)
3400 uim
3500 heads and lim
obd1.5 to obd1.0 if possible
pacesetter headers (cause i already have)

1. will this set-up yield me around 9-9.5-1 cr?
2. what year motors can i use for the 3400 and 3500?
3. can i use obd1.0 for the 4l60e?
4. what about push rods?
5. camshaft recommendations?

I probable have more questions but haven't thought of them yet...lol

Thank You Jonathon

Welcome Jonathon,

theres a few people that have been looking into this kind of build. TKOforpresident is probably going to be to person you want to talk to. he, as well as a few others, should have answers for you, but i'm not sure anyone has started on a build yet. or at least posted about it. Hopefully someone can chime in soon.

feel free to post a thread in the new member section and introduce yourself. throw up some pics of your ride and what not.

The 3500 top end is the one you will want to go with, as they don't really blow intake and head gaskets as often. It will be a very tight fit though since the 3500 intake is pretty tall.
