Those heads look like they are serious parts. Do you have personal experience with that company? HAve you used these parts?
This is starting to look like a higher rpm setup now.
Any opinions on converting a 2 bolt block to splayed mains, or would stock 4 bolt mains suffice? Would you take 2 bolt mains to 7000rpm?
Personally I won't spend that much money on a sbc platform when the gen 3/4 stuff is so much better but there are MANY people who have nothing but good things to say about speir and his products. you can find him on speedtalk.com. If you're looking at 7,000 rpm then the heads I linked too will be too small, they're more suited to a hot street 383 than a more race style set up.
On the blocks, rpm, and rotating assembly- it depends a lot on weight and balance.
