Typical little mods made by owners also improved things easily, the standard single point distributor was often replaced with a Delco-Remy dual point distributor made for the Vette, carb re-jetting, less restrictive exhaust (unless you already had the factory chambered exhaust), lots of little things could be done to help that DZ302. To add a little perspective, in May '69 Car Life tested a Camaro SS 396cid/375 HP at 14.77/98.72.
Would the Cross-Ram and headers in the trunk still be considered "factory" parts even though the dealer installed them? After seeing that 396 (?L78?) time, that little 302 didn't do so bad after all I have a neighbor, that I just happened to stumble across, that has a '67 or '68 Z28, and though it has a 383 now, he said it ran REALLY good back in the day with the 302 (1320').

Good stuff. Thanks Clyde
