Which Manifold for Chevy 355
I have the great pleasure of pulling the fresh chevy 350 from my Blazer again! With the 700 r4 tv cable geometry issues I was fighting on the performer intake I am considering going back with the stock intake. Will I lose much low end torque? The carb is the stock Q Jet and the cam is a Crane 260 very mild!
Oh by the way my conclusion on why I lost all mains and rod bearings on a fresh rebuild was that for some reason the oil galleries were either dirty or plugged and the grit in these wipped out the bearing within 20 miles! Sounds logical HUH! Anyway I am setting up now to pull the engine again and strip and recrank, yes I trashed the crank as well!
But I thought with the new oppertunity to rebuild I would consider doing things a little different like clean the galleries better and maybe put the stock intake back on! I also picked up a non ecm HEI didt today at the boneyard. I found several 3970010 engines that I was yearning for, I love the boneyard! Found several sets of ram horn exhaust manifolds but they were all cracked!
