Help with guesstimate?
 
Hello. I recently bought a used 350, which I plan on rebuilding and putting some performance parts in it. However, I have never done this before, so I have no clue whether there are a bunch of small things for every large thing. So I was hoping you guys could help me figure out what Ill need for what I plan to do?

Putting on new intake manifold (Manifold, Gasket, bolts?)
New bearings (pretty basic)
Needs oilpan (and oilpan gasket)
Piston rings?
Cam and Lifters (I have NO clue if that means I need any new bits and pieces, or new springs, keeping in mind the cam will be pretty mild)
Headers (and gaskets)


So, assuming nothing major (cylinder walls, pistons, rods) have gone, could you guyds help me figure out what Ill need to do this?

For example, i am unsure if putting in a new cam and lifters is just installing them, or if there is other things that will need to be added, just like manifolds need gaskets.

Thanks for any help...I am pretty lost.

your best bet is get a engine manual and read it over twice, people here can also help you

You'll need some assembly lube.
