WAIT! I know the answer to this one!

Poorer!

Seriously, if you threw the same amount of money at a BBC you would be pumping out 500HP reliably...the way your going...your going to get a bucketful of broken pistons and rods and a really heavy boat anchor.

I still don't get the point,,,yea I know the "different" thing but how much money do you need to waste to be different? Is this like the grunge movement where the nastiest looking t-shirt that costs $120 is the best?

Sorry I keep raining on this parade, can't help myself.

It's a behemoth! Those rods are friggin hyoooge. I think this is 'cool' and like said, the only guy in the world doing one of htem. Maybe not your average hot rodder's cool, but I give this guy credit for having moved beyond the thought.

I think the engine is pretty over build and solid. I mean look at the size of the main caps and the crank journal they are huge I think they will be able to take the abuse. Just start with a 100 shot and move your way up but I wouldnt go over 200-250.

first i know i have shirked on posting here for a while but life got pretty busy once school started back up but i finally got the parts ordered for the engine overhaul, or so i thought. i got a very friendly wake up call today telling me that the pistons for the kit i ordered are now discontinued/ out of stock and wanted to know if i would like to still keep the order. i of course said no being that my block is now .030 over and with out pistons it is now just a very heavy very useless peice of scrap iron. this leaves me with a choice: big block or small block.
... *sigh* ...
I'll be back....

Still Looking at the BB V-6?

Just caught this thread and I totally agree that this is the purest sense for hot rodding. If you still have the 351 you can get used pistons for it. They will take NOS and a supercharger or turbo given the steel crank and 4 bolt mains. Sorry I didn't see this sooner, been stuck in GMC V-12 land.

thanks for bumping this old thread. I hope GMCfive-0V6 still has that motor, I like short stroke/big bore combos and depending on where in texas he lives I would give him some money for it. I dunno how much now, but I am not afraid to take on a project like this. A GMC v6 would fit in my big van I am pretty sure tho, and I have always liked them. I love the original ads for them being good on gas... Very nice.

"SHORT STROKE DESIGN It takes less travel of the V-6 piston to produce each mile of pulling power. The result -- less friction, less heat, less wear & less expense." Almost every ad says something like that. I love it.

im in north TX, texoma area, and i actually DO still have the motor ... well it's actually 3, 1 assembled 305 that runs but has lower end noise, another 305 thats torn apart cleaned and bored .030 over and the 351 thats is torn down and cleaned as well, i have everything off of these engines, including 2 bell-housings and a 3 speed muncie that came off the running engine. i have both the torn down engines in a shipping container so there out of the elements but they have gotten a little surface rust nothing bad though. i don't really have a use for them anymore since i droped a TBI 350 in the truck... BUT anyway, yes i am interested in selling them, just be sure to bring something big to take them away, there all freaking heavy... 800lbs and some change for the 305's!!! if you need anymore info just let me know

ALWAYS starts, truck weighs 7000lb empty rolled over the scales at over 15000lb. not bad for a 3/4t chassis. rarly rev over 2500, no need....... anyway..... if still have motor(s)...... we have a bit of 305/51/79 & 401s around here.....anyway...good luck happy building.

keep at it!

im new here myself but u are in the right frame of mind. just because someone hasnt done it before you does not at all mean its dumb worthless or a stupid goal. if you flip through a jegs or summit catalog every single item you see was someones "dumb idea"! im sure far enough back the candle was a "bad idea" to some one. lol just keep at it even if ther is next to no hp gain, how many other people will have what you have? and last i checked rodding was as much being unique as it was being fast and professional. do it once do it right and killem all. see you at the light.
