thanks in advance.
This not the place to market your engine. take that somewhere else.
You bought it you should have a clue.
It is worth what someone wants to pay you for it.

Not trying to "market an engine". Marketing it would include including my contact info, which I wont do. Ive never bought or sold a used engine. Im also not familar with GM or high compression race gas engines. I bought it based on the idea I would modify it to run on 93. Based on responses from people like yourself it sounds like its not a good idea to take it apart. Thats why Ive used this forum for advise from others with more experience like every other person who has posted a question looking for help here. Chill out.

Sounds like you already buy race gas by the drum. What's one more? Me, I hate to admit I've made a serious uncorrectable blunder. Now, with that said, it doesn't sound like you have the skills or the inclination to fix this problem yourself. If you did, you would pull it apart on the stand where it sits and see what you got. Most folks I know would never buy a used race engine from anything less than a reputable engine builder. So...that leaves you with the option of breaking it down and selling for salvage the parts you don't use. Use the block, the rods and crank and buy new parts that fit what you intend to do with the car. 500 HP on pump gas is not difficult with a 355 if you use a set of AFR or comprable heads and a hydraulic roller cam. It's at the upper range of what you can expect without power adders.
Maybe the guy you bought it from will buy it back at a discount you can live with.
