267

I have a nice 267 laying around and i was thinking of getting a roller s10 and putting in that for a daily driver. here's what i was thinking

Stock crank, Stock rods, Stock pistons(i haven't seen any pistons even for a 267), re-ring kit, new bearings,performer rpm intake,stock heads,small cam(.420ish), and an edelbrock 550-600cfm carb, shorty headers. Real low-budget build. Any body ever try this and have any suggestions??

-Eric

If you have the parts laying around, go for it. But, I wouldn't sink much money into it. Nice thing about it is, you can always use the intake etc on a 350 later on when you get one......

I would use a basic performer intake, the 267 needs all the velocity it can get to help low end torque as the factory intake was. I would also use the smallest comp cams high energy grind since it`s suited for small cubic inch engines. If your looking for fuel economy, you picked the right engine, but if your looking for performance I wouldn`t waste my time with it.

I am looking for economy with a slight umph. I know a 267 ain't gonna do much but it will be slighty "quick".

The 267 will give you the sound you want, but put your money into a 350 you will be alot better off. and your gas milage will not be much different (depending on what you do to it ) been there done that!
