Stroker build

I have 77 chevy luv that currently has a 350 in it. I would like to completely rebuild the engine starting with just a block but not sure on what the best selectin of parts would be. My expectations are around 500hp which I understand will not be cheap. I'm currently deployed in afghanistan and want to start getting the parts for when I get back. The only thing I have so far is a weiand high rise intake with two Holley 4barrel carbs on it. I want to also get a t56 6 speed trans to mix it up. I just need some guidance on the technical specs for everything else so that it all works proficiently.

Thanks for all advice

Thank you very much. Intended use, it's gonna be a street truck but just a toy. I want quick response, however mostly to be well rounded both bottom and top end. I need a new rear end cause its geared way to low right now so no top end at all.the truck is super light and with a 6 speed I could go with a higher gear. budget, i want good parts and I'm not gonna limit the price too much. The truck means a lot to me so I'm not worried about it. But if I had to put a price on it id say around 5k-6k for the entire engine give or take some. Thanks again

Hello Lloyd. First, thank you for your service.
I would direct you to Air Flow Research dyno results. Top of the page is a 383 makin' 503. Just copy their recipe and use the same level of fuel.

From a Viet Nam vet....get home soon and in one piece. You mentioned the rear end and it already has a V8, was the rear end changed out...9", 10 or 12 bolt? If you're going to a 6 spd. I'd leave it alone for now, those OD sticks have a huge 6th gear ratio and it may be just fine for cruising.

Also just a thought and when thinking about building an engine the temptation is great ....... Don't build a super high compression, huge cam "race" engine for a street car. It's just not necessary and will be a major PIA driving it around town, besides you're going to have traction problems anyway withat little pick up.

Good luck and get back safe, you'll have new feeling for "our world", the grass smells sweeter and food tastes better..........Dave
