Big domes=big weight, and a mandatory rebalance. To complicate it, your pistons are already on the rods; so unless you know IF they were balanced, and what the weights were, you're going to have to press the pistons off and start over. And, it's a lot easier and cheaper to find a 350 crank as opposed to a large journal 327/307. Use your block, use your rods, get new 350 pistons, a 350 crank, and vortec heads. Easier to get 350 hp from a 350 than 327 these days. Although all I have are 327's (cept' for the 305 stroker in my truck).
