But more importantly, i would like to apologize to jesumi for using the "w" term; This was completely inappropriate----for an adult, like me, to use a term like that with you--a child. Even though i'm pretty sure you know what it means.

Please accept my apology and i'd like to ask for everyone else's understanding as well. This was wrong. Let us substitute the phrase "blowing smoke" instead.

So, with that out of the way, i think it's really important to establish a budget for this (and any) project. It does no good to start and then run out of money. Also, i don't think it's wise to spend everything you got on an engine. i think 20% is reasonable.

I have been running GMC 6-71 and 4-71 blowers on stock small blocks for about 35 years,and have never had a problem.I have used them on 327,350 and 400 small blocks,all with stock dampers and cranks. I am currently driving a 39 chevy coupe with a 6-71 blown 350.I rebuilt the engine in my home garage using all stock parts. I am also building a T-bucket,this one is powered with a stock Targetmaster 350 using a 4-71 blower driven at crank speed.I am running the 6-71 underdriven for street driving. I am 65 years old,and I see you are 17 if you plan on thrashing that engine(Racing etc) you will definately need forged pistons and a steel crank.
