Hello. Would like to introduce myself since I am new to this forum. Names Jake but you can call me Bonez
. Anyways, I have a sbc 355 on the way, forged bottom end, cam, heads yada yada yada. Couple questions on the build and you like to hear some of your opinions. Don't go too hard now. Just got the motor and it isn't here yet so I haven't seen the actual build sheet yet. This is what the seller told me.
1973 z28 block(high nickel) Bored .030 over
Forged crank w/ forged I-beam rods
KB Hydrastatic flat top pistons w/ moly rings
Mutha thumpr cam w/ lifters
Stock 202 heads
Okay so, the stock 202 heads are just coming with the motor and were not ran. Time slips on this setup with different set of 202 heads I'm assuming ran 2.263 60ft 9.438 1/8th 14.484 1/4th @ 98.79 MPH in a 3rd Gen Firebird. No stall th400, has a shift kit, had stock gears and I'm assuming on street tires. Pretty doggy if you ask me. I know the Thumpr cams were really made for sound and that I understand. Hopefully with my additions will help this cam out a bit. Heres a list of my upgrades I will be adding, mind you, this motor trans setup will be dropped into a 1987 s10.
Dart Iron Eagle 185cc 64cc heads
Dual valve springs(no specs)

Hopefully also get that Thumpr cam swapped out
4.10 gears 7.5" rear end
Please feel free to share your opinions, I'm all ears!
