350 chevy final touches
I have a 350 chevrolet engine thats going into my Chevy Monza. This will be mildly built street car that i would like bring to the strip sometimes. The information on the car is following.. It's 2800 lbs and has 4.11 gears and spool. It sits on 275/65-15 tires and the transmission is th350 that has shift kit and 2400 stall b&m holeshot converter.
Engine is a 1974 sbc 350 out of a Blazer. The block is 4 bolt mains, the rods are stock with orginal bolts. It has stock cast dish pistons. But the short block is recently assembled and in good condition. Compression will be 9:1 since i will use steel shim head gasket and 64cc aluminum heads 215cc with 2.08"/1.6" valves. 1.6 roller rocker arms. The intake manifold is edelbrock performer rpm, non air gap version. On top of the intake manifold is 1/2" phenolic spacer and a holley 750 cfm dp carb. The engine will have 1.5/8" long tube headers with dual 2.1/2" exhaust with flowmaster 40 mufflers. As you may have noticed i haven't purchased a camshaft yet. I have been looking over that for the past few days. And like the comp cams xe268 hydraulic flat tappet camshaft for my strong street application. But would like to get your advice about my engine build.
