Yes you could get all of that, the original poster I was quoting seemed to imply that they all came with headers in the trunk and that just was not so. And actually on the street the single four barrel seemed to outperform the dual quad cross ram, the two 500 cfms on it dumped too much gas. I had some "adventures" with L78 Camaros back in the day, they were excellent packages, but like you mentioned with that 396 lump in the front they did not dare to go with me on curvy roads.
