Hi All,

Going into a 1965 El Camino 700r4..2800 stall and 373 rear end
Please advice on correct parts and combo.....dont want to make the same mistake as before.... only have $2800 to spend

1. 383 roller block..............................(have)
2. Dart Pro1 215 heads.........................(have)
3. 6" rods hbeams................................(have)
5. SRP FLATTOP PISTONS 383...............(thinking 11-1)..????
9. ISKY HYDRAULIC ROLLER.505/.530 Part#: 261272/282 (help??????)_

it seems like you got most of your parts already.I'd put some money into beefing up that trans and I would use a .041 head gasket thickness if youre block is zero decked to get it to run on pump gas.A larger cam would be better for pump gas maybe 12-433-8 from comp
