Got to agree an lt or ls motor is a step above the gen one block. LS is a big improvement.
If your 350 gen one is a good block just get the heads that fit. You can buy cheap alum heads off ebay for just under 700 bucks complete ready to bolt on and iron heads around 400. Edelbrock even makes a low cost heads that got good numbers. Sometimes its better to deliver pizzas for new parts a few months than take your car a part for a few months to figure out the ultimate cheap swap. These days 40 hours worth of spare times is over 2 months of real time.
