A few years ago Hot Rod magazine made 400 hp on a junk yard 350 short block pulled from a '75 Impala. They used the Vortex heads and a Comp cam IIRC. The short block held up just fine to the many dyno pulls as well. As a general opinion, I think we tend to listen to salesmen too much in believing stock parts are junk.
