Motor Advice,,

I have a 1974 model 350 4-bolt main,,

I purchased this engine, after the guy removed Intake/Heads, And oil Pan.

He told me it was a 327, but after it arrived, I found it is a 350 4-bolt main.

I have a 1978 Camaro, which has a 350 2-bolt main. I am not sure if I want to build this motor for my Camaro, or not.. I don't want to build a FAST car, This will be a daily driver, and I don't want to have a motor burning too much fuel, Too fast..

I am going to be changing the intake and carb, and later install headers,, Edelbrock for Intake and Carb,, Headers, not sure, yet,, I submitted another thread on intake and carb, and headers, no need to reply about that hardware,,

Thanks in advance, for advice...

If your asking if the 2 bolt is worth swapping for the 4 bolt, not at your power level. You could sell the 4 bolt to help pay for the intake and Carb and then maybe install a RV or towing cam for some more low end grunt but if your not shooting for 450-500hp I would sell the 4-bolt.
