327 rebuild

Hello folks,

Well, after much persuading, and a lot of liquid wrench, I finally got the 327 that had sat for about 5 years to free up and am now ready to start rebuild. I have been a wrench turner for quite a few years, but have never undertaken a total rebuild. I'm not out for gas mileage, since it's a weekend car, but want to keep costs somewhat reasonable. It has 1.94 heads (off a 350 according to #'s). Suggestions? Oh, yeah 4 speed Muncie behind it. Any help, as always is much appreciated.

dis-assemble, have the block tanked and inspected, measure bores, check crank, measure journals, go with a complete rebuild package from PAW, SUMMIT, or whoever you feel best dealing with. They have packages from mild to wild. For a weekend cruiser, you don't need to go hog wild. keep it under 10:1 compression so pump gas will be enough. Tall enough gears will give you better response, the 327 likes to wind a bit higher to make it's HP anyway. I'm sure that some of the bowtie boys will give more specific recommendations for cam, intake, exhaust, and so on.
