Contact Jim Lehart or Paul Spotts they are close to you.. They are both Pontiac builders with excellent feedback..

Best to use small valve Pontiac heads (46) and have larger valves installed in them..

I'll second that. On a side note, a 3.00" main block is stronger than a 3.25" main block. It takes less oil to keep the bearings afloat and oil temperature will be cooler.
