Looking for suggestions to round this engine out as a reliable driver with some decent street punch for a light highboy. Maybe a little rumpity rump at idle, but not imperative. Want to stay with carb (s), no FI. Other than that, it can go just about any direction.
If you only wanted to build this ONCE and be done with it, what would you include?
Thanks for your input.
I would drop in a 383 balanced rotating assembly for the most punch. If this is not in your budget at least put flat top pistons and an RV cam.this will be driveable and give great 0 to 60 on the street.
