Don't need turbos (but I wish), don't need overdrive dont need big heads because it will actually flow better with smaller ports according to this. A high rise dual plane manifold and an adjustable cam gear might be nice. Already have the block, crank, stock 283 heads, stock 327 manifold, and long tube headers. Fun stuff, thanks for helping me figure out what rods and pistons to use everybody. I wish I could run that setup thru desktop dyno but I dont have it... Maybe one of you guys do tho?

Here is a cool article on rod ratios,

Here is a you tube vid of my old lady and dog and I riding my gt750 motorbike before I changed engines.

If I dont like the results of my crazy motor I spose could sell the 327 block and crank to a corvette guy. Theres one on ebay right with the same casting numbers, block only, for 1000$.... woohoo... Mine is flint michigan made with the plug in front and everything.. Gotta love craigslist man...
Your "research is very classic, like a lot of people you pick and choose what facts apply to you; it seems that if it doesn't support your idea then you dismiss it. At this point it appears that you are overlooking more than you are considering.
