Change of plans...

Well plans where to install a LT1 rotating assy in a extra vortec block I had laying around, but turns out the crank in the vortec was broken and spun the no.4 main and the rear main..so that idea was scrapped , then I had an extra LT1 I was gonna just slap my zz4 cam in and drop it in with a carb and regular HEI
Then I found this..








Wait...What color was that?

That right GM blue.....For the stock 70's smog motor look.

Gonna run a stock GM 4brl aluminum intake with the EGR blocked and a nice qjet. stock manifolds. I might squeeze out a good 275hp. and 300+ lb ft of torque I hope,... This will have just over 9.5 to 1 CR so its on the edge for regular gas.
