Also if this is a reasonable question.... what would be a good vehicle to pull a 350 short block from? once again thanks for all the feed back. this website is really insightful.
the best "350" you can find is an LT4... but good luck finding one. I would say the LT1 is easily the next best though there are some that prefer the more traditional Vortec engines.

If it has a carb on it I wouldn't even bother with it, if it has a TBI unit that's usually not worth much either. the TPI engines are decent but the LT's and the Vortec's usually have the best platform to start with- either can go over 400hp with just a cam swap and headers.
