|7178Chevyman||I agree whole heartedly with you but you know what's another thousand bucks when it's something you want I just don't need any catastrophic failure, and I like to use good brand items I agree I could do it cheaper also. You were all a bunch of help and I appreciate it|

I'm just used to doing the same thing for less. I can't afford labels, and even if I could I wouldn't buy into it, but I go to the shows and there's a lot of slow guys proudly discussing how much they have in their cars and I guess for some it stands as a testament to their comittment.
I still prefer the guys who hit 10's for less than some people spend on their trailer they use to haul their show queens.
Then there's those who have both intellegence and money and have garage built cars running 9's... those are the guys everyone envys.

|7178Chevyman||I am just gonna go with my gut build a nice 6" 383, if it takes me longer to do so be it, I will just have to expand my budget and take my time. After its all said and done I'll have a nice play toy thank you all|

|7178Chevyman||I am just looking to build a solid7.5 second eighth mile car, I honestly don't believe I can accomplish this without a set of dart or far heads. Ad you said I'm not the most planned at this point as i am still searching around, I have a fresh short block already I just wanted to build a stroker out of it.|

I spent 3k on headers and exhaust. You need to plan the whole trip before you start or it will cost a lot more when you redo things.
You want 450 ish HP? from what? a smal engine or big engine. I used a big small block because I have a vette and wanted a small block. also weigh was my concern,not that my car handles well,I didnt want to make it worse. Whats the market like where you are,maybe find a used engine in your area and rebuild/freshen that? HP is expensive,I spent over 10k on my engine and put it in a 5k car,now my car is worth 5k.I spent more than 10k on other parts to live behind my engine,,, where are you taking your project?

For 450hp id get a good used 4 bolt short block, hone and rering it, get procomp 210cc heads with 58cc chambers, a hurricane intake, a good solid flat tappet cam in the 240's range, 1 5/8" long tube headers, and a rebuilt carb (750 or bigger). if you're careful you'll have 450hp on 87 octane for less than $1750...
If you want more put a 100hp shot of nitrous on it.

|7178Chevyman||1.94 pressed studs , most likely a late eighties mustang thank you all once again headers I have not decided on yet as I need to concentrate on getting the motor together first|
|08-06-2012 12:45 PM|
|vinniekq2||PS what kind of car and what size headers are you using?|
|08-06-2012 12:45 PM|
|vinniekq2||double hump what? 194s or 202s? screw in studs or pressed? list all your parts please|
|08-06-2012 12:43 PM|
|7178Chevyman||I have a set of original double humps, old technology so like I said probably be buying heads also|

|ap72||You can get 450hp out of a 350 on 87 octane... so why bother with a 383 and 110 octane? Seems like a lot of wasted money and effort.|
