Inexpensive 350 Rebuild

Hey i was just wondering what you guys think of the Summit Brand Engine rebuild kits for the Chevy 350. It seems to be all stock with the exception of the high volume oil pump. It lists in the catalog for about $225, and that seems like an fair price for me. It will be going into either a 1986 350, or else a 1978 350, not sure yet. Either way, has anyone used this and how did it work for you? Or has someone else used a cheaper one that worked good for them, I need to keep this stock or close to. Thanx guys.


Joseph

summit rebuild kits are good for daily driving. i wouldnt use them for major horsepower upgrades. i know a couple people thats used their brand and they've worn out in a year or 2. like everything that has to do with the internals of a motor... spend a few extra dollars for the good stuff. but for stock applications and not race apps. they're ok.

Ok thanks Matt, although this engine will be stock, it is because it will be used for stock car races. I would like to make it last atleast 5 races, or about 200 miles of hard driving. Now that doesnt seem like very long but it will be hard driving, mainly from 1500 RPMs to 4500 RPMs. Will this last, or will something else give first?

it'll last if the rpm's are down around 4500... i dont see any problems with it giving out. the biggest killer of an engine is rpms. just make sure you have an addequite cooling system. it'll be ok.
