On the safe side minimum I would guess about 475+, a freind of mine had a very simular combo N/A 388(.030 over 383), 12:1 comp, AFR 195cc, I dont know his cam or intake though, but his put out peak 503hp on the enigne dyno

I have never checked on this, but it seems that I have been told a big block Chevy will fit in those S10's with minimal mods...if so that would be the way to go.

In fact a '70 455 Buick warmed up a tad would get you a nice little 1/8th rocket...if you can get it to hook.

Like I said before, 1/8th of a mile is not a long distance, so the trick is to get as much off the line acceleration as possible. A big block would do that at a low rpm therefore decreasing wear AND making a nice dayly cruiser to boot.

Yea I have thought of that but it would put me in a diffrent "CLASS" if you know what I mean. I think I want to stay SB but I am sure once I put this in mt pocket i'll be looking for a big block.

Personally, I would build the 327. Go with 11:1 compression, 302 Z-28 solid cam, port the 291 heads, etc. You will have around 385-390 HP, it will wind like crazy. It may not be as powerful as a 383, but it will turn heads and won't be the same old mill everybody else is building.

Tom, I would completey agree with you if it wasn't for the fact that he wants a 1/8th mile rocket.

327

well it is a s-10 blazer. I was told the blazer would hook better than the pickup.But I took apart the 327 today and it already has 30 overs and the ridge thats in it will take another 30 to 40 thous to clean up. so that would leave me pretty thin. So I am forced to use the 350.Now what should I get first ?heads?

Sell the 350, 327, 305, 283's and put the money into a good build based on a 400. Tell everyone it's a 327 and spin it to 6K with NOS. It'll also be more streetable and quicker with less gear.
