"if hes got a good short block"

yup sometimes the devil is in the (small print or) details..........

get a nice cheap crate engine and go through it, there will be enough problems with one of them....then trying to turn a slug into a money pit.....

anyone can easily run up a 2K machine shop bill doing the rebuild/heavyup....

or just get a 350/370 from Jasper for less than you could ever do it....and have a warranty......

He will have enough issues uprading his drive train/trans/suspension/braking system to iron out when increasing his power level 50%.

PS: Danny we do have something in common, the NET lift on my cam is 485 485 116 lobe sep 278/292 duration....and I could not even get valve covers for 1000.00
