olds 455 build up
just found this site and it seems to be the best forum on the net!! i have a 1971 olds cutlass HC. when ya'll get time could you help me out? i'm running a 1970 olds 350 engine and have recently purchased a 1971 olds 455. i've been told a bunch of stuff in my 350 will work in this 455. my main questions are: 1)will the almost new Comp cam (224 duration with a 501 lift) work? 2) will the 1.6 magnum roller rocker kit with guide plates work? (i know the pushrods will need to be differant length) 3) there is an existing 2 barrel intake, i plan to install a edlebrock performer 4 barrel intake and use my 600cfm edlebrock carb with dual 2 1/2"exhaust, i have a 1700 rpm stall converter on a 350 transmission. last but not least..will my better quality distributor work?...any other "affordable' suggestions would be greatly apperciated. i'm old a skeerd so all i want is low end torque. by looking at the other posts, i will thank you for your responses ahead.
