options to be considered?????

Okay, whats up guys its been awhile. I have a question, currently I have a 305 in my 91 Z28 and I was thinking of tearing it out and boring and stroking it to 335 cubic inches or just building a healthy 350. the only thing is that I want the hydraulic roller cam that came with the engine. My question is what would the best plan of action be???? also I want to keep the fuel injection thats in it but put a stealth ram intake manifold on it and a decent sized camshaft.

More bang for the buck!

I love horse power and stroker engines! If I was in your shoes and knowing what it will cost to tear the engine down and go through it, machine work ect. I would make a list of items and work to be done, then total it all up. Then on the other side, check in to a paxton or small blower. You will not be down long nor will you loose your roller cam ect. The 350 sounds good, but you will have to find a newer block that has the roller lifter bosses in the valley. Your heads will not work well on this engine.........should use 64cc 194/150 min. all in all I have great luck with super chargers! Paxton being one of the simplest and most user friendly. Oh and they will meet Cal smog standards most of the time. Want more power, change the pully and put in better gas. Check into a programmer for the computer, not just a chip! Then you can dial things in as you change engines or what ever you decide.
PS, Im running a Chevy 400 sb that puts out over 600 real HP on the dyno. Twin TBI's on top of a roots style blower. What a sleeper Grinz!
