86' chevy guy
Hi, joe here. I keep running into this forum on most my searches. So I thought I'd join in.
I'm riding in an 86' chev c10 with the 305 in it. I did put in a pretty agressive cam...early mistakes, but it still helped with power. Had I known what I do now I would have gotten differently. I also put in a edlebrock 600cfm carb with a edlebrock performer intake. A set of basic long summit headers, with true dual and flowmaster(all 2 1/2")... 40 series I think. oh and a new edl mech. fuel pump. All this has made for a pretty mean sounding ride...except I don't make any real power till after 2200 rpm...lol so now I wish I'd dumped the money into my 350 block.
So that's where I'm at now, building my 350, with 2-bolt main 2pc. rear main seal...to hopefully break 400hp. with the vortec heads(I have a set) but I'm not totally sold on using them yet. I'm reusing a performance gm crank aswell(maybe) n I have a new set of x-beam connecting rods.
Any suggestions are more than welcome.
