Hey my names Mike and have been working on cars my whole life.I have had many but this one I plan on making it the ultimate sleeper, the sleeper types have always gotten me. The car I have is a 1999 toyota camry with 55K on it right now, I bought it off my elderly neighbors who barely drove it. I miss having my older camaro and that nice power it made. so as soon as the camry starts to die ill swap it with a BBC 454. However my goal is to make at least 800 to 850 WHP on the bottle to propel this 3200 lb car (maybe more with a 454) down the track and at least run 8 and 9 seconds down the 1/4 mile . However Im unsure about the setup I have thought about. THERE ARE SO MANY TO MIX AND CHOOSE DAMNIT! this is a progressive build so when it dies the engine will be ready.

Any help anyone can give me would be great, or a new setup lol I don't have any car guys to talk to about this so I thought i'd join a forum. So thanks allot guys!

Im thinking of boring and stroking the block to a 496
then all the stuff. help me pick please haha

9.1, 9:5.1 or 9:8.1 or 11.1 compression ratio

mahle powerpak forged pistons

ARP head bolts and studs

Eagle specialty forged 4340 crank

AFR 195cc Street ported eliminator heads, i saw afrs 302cc or 315cc heads, im unsure. i thought stock heads, but i think they might fail on me at that power.

comp cam 292 hydraulic or summit's cam kit.

and whatever shot of the juice is needed to get it there. 250, 300 shot.

Edelbrock victor jr intake manifold, or tunnel ram with dual carbs

Carburetor would be 2 or one 950 CFM carbs.

and hardblok. short fill it.

How the heck are you gonna put a BBC with a tunnel ram a dual carbs in a camrey and have it be a sleeper? Freaking crabs will be a foot and a half above the hood line. This ain't gonna be some weekend engine swap project, its a FWD car. You'd need completely new suspension on both ends and cut the floor and interior to bits to make room for the drive shaft and trans. You'll have to custom build damn near everything cause nobody is gonna have parts.

My old girlfriends brother had a 72 Celica with a small block in it and there was plenty of room in that tiny cars engine bay. I would think a Camry would have a little more room.

You didn't speak of any type of cage/frame work, rear end, ladder bar/4-link, coil overs or any of the most important parts of a race car. Don't get drawn into the idea that a good engine is all you need. Matter of fact....the engine is the least important thing you should be focusing on starting your build. jmo
Good luck with your idea.:)

well obviously im going to have to redo it all, front and rear suspension, rear diff, drivetrain etc. i dont give a flying fuck. i want to do it, and i have plenty of room in the bay for a bbc. and hood wise ill weld up some sort of gay ridiculous hat for the hood to cover up the tunnel ram. regardless when the engines built ill start up. i have my heart set on it. budget isnt a factor, its a progressive build. i already have a diff and transmission at my uncles shop. ill make it work and happen. i am trying to figure what the fuck i should do with the setup. im not worried about the other shit yet. step at a time lol and i hate imports.... im a muscle guy not a ricer or import... eww.. just got this car cause it was a steal. and thanks coyote :) i was at my uncles shot and i saw how i could mock some of it up. some brackets are gonna be needed to hold most of it together but it should happen. roll cage comes in after they kick me out for running faster than i should with a cage.
