scat 6 rods pro i beam all the way they will clear everything no problems. Lighter pistons make it easier to balance. Modern metric ring packs with 3mm oil ring and 1.125 ch keep the pin out of the oil groove
Lose the procomp heads they are GARBAGE stock vortecs will out hp them

Good advice from oldbogie...

I don't know how the threads got "crossed". I posted that "line" on the "engine" forum and it ended up here anyway... The "answer" I was refering to is in this thread.

I know a cheap build isn't the best build in building a race motor.I should of said a budget build is what i'm planning.I have found a 5.7 balanced eagle rotating assembly for around $650.A buddy of mine bought one of them in a BB 468 rotating assembly and it worked great and he is very happy with it.I havent found anything in a 6in rotating assembly for that price yet.
I'm bracket racing so it doesnt have to be the baddest motor at the track i just want something making more hp than my 358 is right now.
Have to disagree about the procomp heads,know a guy running a roller 383 with them on it and has ran it at the track for over 5 years and has never touched the motor and is very happy with them.You just have to get the ones that have the good valves and springs in them.I'm not a big fan of the vortech heads i now guys that tried them and better times out of a set of 882's.
