building a chevy 350, need some advice
hi, i currently have an s10 with a 305 in it, and over the winter i will be building a chevy 350 to drop in it. right now i'm just in the planning stages, and am looking for some advice. i would like to build something with around 350hp. So i have a few questions. should i pick up a 350, leave the bottom end stock and do some head work, cam, intake, carb and so on, or should i build one from a bare block. I am looking for any and all suggestions and input..and am also looking for specifics, like what cam, what intake, what carb, what heads...stock, 305 heads,, and so on, and of course i'm on a budget..thanks for any help..

we build this as a basic budget performance motor; 350 block +.030 or .040 flat top hypereutectic pistons. resize stock rods with new aftermkt bolts, regrind crank,, new cam bearings, double roller timing set, hyd cam short duration up to 480 lift,high volume oil pump. then we take the heads mill them.010 new bronze liners, match intake ports to the gasket smooth upper port on exh, blend in bowls, three angle on the seat two on the valve,new springs to compliment the cam.this combined with a good dual plane intake and a set of headers will make reliable power that won't cost you your life savings,easy on parts and gas.

go with a 4 bolt main block for added insurance. these are available in junkyard trucks and the like.

Yea! BOBCRMAN. What does this package cost? Do you require a core block or heads? And what upgrades are available? Who does shipping and about what is the cost like, Say every 100 miles? Do you supply any race prepaired engines and for what team or teams? :) Do you bench test/run your engines and for how long?
