That would be cool, but he is on a budget. Has little ones at home, they come first. He does want a hot rod, so I'll be helping him with it. Just thought maybe someone knew of the litle things that need be done on them so they will last. I tthink naturaly asperated will work just fine. Maybe 3x2, roller cam, and rockers and a good set of tuned headers, lite weight pistons and balanced, clean the head up w/bigger valves and powerglide tranny, 3;50 gears. I think I can do the engine under $2k.I am hopping somewhere around 350 to 400 HP. I was wondering if there are any oil problems with this engine? Dad
