The car its going in is a 1969 Nova. I want a street car with above average HP (350-400). Don't know how much its gonna cost to zero deck the block but I can go $400 on Roller cam lifter and springs. I'm just not certain which cam to go with now and from what the Tech said it sounds like things got more complicated after finding out the block was cast #3970010

when I overhaul and engine,I spend quite a lot on machine work.Im fussy and have to pay the price. The block gets cleaned(several times if you count thread chasing)new cam bearings and frost plugs.
Machine work is align hone as required,bore as required,finish hone as required,squared and decked.crank gets ground and or honed. heads get resurfaced,valve grind and guides as required.rods are magnafluxed/resized.rotating parts all get "precision" balanced.some blocks require clearancing,,,
The machine shop guy gets a few bucks
The better quality the machining the more the cost,,,

Yeah, but the alternative is heads that sit askew on the block, creating different static compression ratios cylinder to cylinder and an intake manifold that won't seal up. You either have the money to do a correct rebuild or you don't.

Is it a must that I deck my block? I'm wondering why the shop that prepared my block didn't do this. I only paid $240 for hot tank, magnaflux, new bearings, new plugs, honed block and polished crank.

I did some research, once I get the pistons I can get piston to block clearance. So it looks like my block will be going back to the shop once my piston arrive.

Asking for help which kit for Vette L82 1980

BUT.....if that's not in the budget......and don't get terrified if it isn't, many people are still using flat tappet cams....then may I make a couple suggestions that keep things simple? If your new to all of this (which I'm talking out of my *** and have no idea) then some of tech's info is going to be over your head. He is way smarter then alot of us and knows his stuff inside and out....but its alot to take in..... a 350-400hp 355 is dead simple.....
Summit rebuild kit with 0.030 slugs, get the block zero decked.
0.041 head gasket

Comp is 10:2.1, should make the numbers your looking for assuming the published flow numbers Patriot had still stand up.
No reason they shouldn't be the same

Tech? Am I close here....cam straight up installed, 1.5 rockers....?
2500-3000 stall and 373 or better depending on tire, this should be fun.

Oh and use this at every oil change
