Chevrolet Short Block Plan

OK I call it a plan as I'm building a new short block to replace the one that had a fire slot between the 2 cylinders and a crack down one.

I hope you engine building techs can point me in the right direction, here is a short list of parts I'm thinking of buying to build my next 350

GM Performance Parts 350 Bare Block
Clevite Camshaft Bearings
Clevite Main Bearings 0.010 Under
Clevite Connecting Rod Bearings ) 0.010 Under
Pete Jackson Quiet Gear Drive
Aluminum Timing Cover
Summit High Volume Oil Pump And Pick Up
ARP Main Stud Kit
Speed Pro Forged Pistons 10.5 Compression
Copper Head Gaskets
Fluidampr Streetdampr
Speed Pro Piston Rings

I will be using the same crank, rods, cam/lifters

My last engine had 12:1 compression and used 2 stages of NOS. I also have a 7 quart oil pan, good heads, MSD ignition

You can't re-use the old hydraulic/solid flat tappet lifters. They were broken in for the old block. They won't work in the new block.

If they are roller lifters it will be okay.

I am not a nitrous expert, but your compression seems high for it. I don't think you need that high of compression because the nitrous will boost cylinder pressures on its own. It may be why your last block failed.

Never tried it, but, I thought the lifters were broken in for the cam not the block. If using the same cam, and lifters are matched to the lobes, what does the block have to do with it?

you probably want to get a deeper sump oil pan w/that high vol. oil pump

don't forget the windage tray

also don't forget the flexplate/flywheel you'll need it when you go to get the rotating assembly balanced

you are going to get it balanced too right?
