ap72 If you're selling the truck id put as little money as possible into the engine. If you buy your parts new you'll never make your money back.

Roller or not.

If you go for a roller motor would the vehicle have a higher resale. I guess it depends who your buyer is and what they expect from the powerplant. Someone who knows the benefits of a roller block would buy it opposed to a flat tappet. If my engine was a roller i dont think my car would be worth much more even if it could sustain higher revs for longer. What sort of buyer would that be..???????More questions than answers.
A Jensen Interceptor that appears every year here for our annual Targa event has a non-roller engine and comes back every year with little more than an oil change .

Keep and rebuild flat tappet 350, or try and get roller cam 350?

I am finally pulling my motor and in my research (on this forum and others), I see that roller outdoes flat tappet. My question is.....is it a big enough difference to SELL my current 350, look for and buy a roller 350?
I should be putting Vortec heads, or aftermarkets on with a RPM air intake, cam to fit, edelbrock carb....ect
also one more piece of the consideration puzzle, I will be selling the truck its going into. Thanks for your help!
