Post Best way to build 327??

Right now i have a 69 chevelle 327. it has some stuff done to it but i want more power. id like to stay with the 327 so i dont have to make a bunch of other changes. My question is how would you "guys or gals" build a 327. the price is about 1500 bux, but when i sell my bike i am gunna put on a 177 streetcharger. so i think i wanna build the engine to match. its backed up byu a th350 that i want to put in a slap shifter and then soon im gunna get posi. If you need moreinfo please ask. Oh ya it is a daily driver but never goes very far from home. thanks to everyone

327

Well, just keep in mind you need to start at the rear end of the car, gear ratio, tranny, torque converter, exhaust, then that little mouse to match those components. If your keeping everything the same in the rear end build accordingly. No sense in putting in a huge cam if you have small chamber heads cast heads to support the flow. Just remember take into account what you have behind the 327 before you start dumping money into her. Otherwise performance will be a disappointment when you thought your little mouse would scream down your neighborhood.

what chevyrally68
stated. do the power train first posi is good. shocks and brakes for high performance and proper tires
1500 bucks will maybe rebuild the short block stock with good pieces. machine work and balancing will use at least 1/2 your 1500,then pistons/timing chain/cam lifters/oil pump gaskets.
you will have to price out parts in your area

Id leave the motor as is if its running good and just get a set of gears. Naybe 342 or no higher than 373 if its a daily driver. Youll notice a huuuge difference by that upgrade. but if you dont get a posi youll smoke that one tire right off
