Thread: ZZ502 '68 Camaro fouling plugs?

  1. #21


    Highly doubt that it's a decent sized cam. 80s around 800-900 RPM if I recall? Sounds like I need to pull more? LOL.

    80 kPa idle is wrong. The MAP kPa is high because it's idling poorly (something is wrong).
    May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    80 kPa is race car territory. We're talking 30-40 degrees of overlap on the cam and 1100 RPM minimum idle. It's entirely likely that your plugs were so fouled, several cylinders were not all. This would explain the 80 kPa, as well as the false lean condition that caused the Learn Table to have those high numbers. I'd be happy to help you tune this engine. I had a 502 in my '70 GTO when I first built it in the early 2000s. Andrew

    A ZZ502 is a very mild combo with great vacuum at idle. They should idle around 50 kPa, if not a little lower unless the cam has been changed to something fairly wild. A stone stock ZZ502 typically won't wake up a sleeping baby. If you can't get one of those to run with a Sniper then you have a major mechanical problem somewhere. Exhaust leak, vacuum leak, bum cylinder, etc.

    It has to be something simple. It was running decently well when I pulled the carb off last month. Just tracking bugs.

    Thank you all! Latest datalogs and Config Files idles now no throttle. It certainly needs a touch more, but looks way better? Mr. Andrew & I will start dialing it in shortly.
