That balancer will fly apart, they're known POS
The heads really arent that great for the money IMO
Hyper pistons will work just fine on the street.
A cast crank will work just fine


You have way too much money spent on the wrong parts and not enough on the right parts.


FWIW you can get over 400hp with a stock 350 with heads, cam, intake, and headers, a very mild and driveable 400hp too.
