Pro-Filer 185's will flow 270 and support well over 500 horsepower. With the 327's smaller displacement, you'll need revs to make up the difference.

So I've decided that I will attempt to rebuild the motor myself and send the block to a machine shop for work if I need to. The HOA can go worry about crime or something else. This way I can afford better parts and learn a lot.
Here are the parts I'm considering right now:
Heads: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/rhs-12052
Head Assembly Kit:
RHS 12987-01 Cylinder Head Assembly Kit with Dual Valve Springs and 2.020"/1.600" Valves for Small Block Chevy : Amazon.com : Automotive RHS 12987-01 Cylinder Head Assembly Kit with Dual Valve Springs and 2.020"/1.600" Valves for Small Block Chevy : Amazon.com : Automotive
Cam/lifters: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/hrs-cl113215-10
Intake: Edelbrock Performer EPS (not the RPM)
Carb: sticking with my Holley vac secondary 600cfm
Rockers: ???
Pushrods: ???

I've not completely figured out the timing chain/button/thrust washer deal yet.
I should be looking for a composite gear for my distributor right? I've read that it's suggested that a channel be milled or filed into the bottom band on the distributor shaft to provide oil to the gears. Is this necessary for all applications?
Is it necessary to remove the inner valve spring during break in?
Should I replace my crank/rods/pistons even if they look ok? If my pistons are dished, I'd like to go with flat tops.

What do you think about all this? Any suggestions on changes or any parts is greatly appreciated. Also, links to step by step (photos preferred) on how to assemble anything would be helpful. My books don't go over retrofit roller cams.

Thanks,
Wilson

That was the plan the whole time. I was never going for 450 hp
