I know it can handle it, but that and the rods looks like the weakest link of what he listed. Unless he has oiling problems. It should be fine, but If anything goes I'd guess the block.

Thanks guys, everyone saying that the block "should" handle it takes a bit off my mind. Did I go with enough duration on the cam? I hope the motor never see 7500, I really don't want to take it much past 7k but I think that will be a good place for my rev limiter. On a day to day basis it will see 4500-5k max with cruise speeds staying around 3500-3800. It just has to bust some ricers at street fights.

keep us posted

keep us posted on how the build is coming along and how everything turns out!! Sounds like you've got your head pointed in the right direction.
as mentioned before, ENJOY this while you still can... I know you think money is tight now, but once a house, baby and a wife come into the picture it gets even tighter (sometimes non-exsistant). I have all those and am trying to do a vortec 406 right now, and its tuff!! I also have another block I'd like to use for a 377 if I don't sell it. I've got an 82 cutlass supreme with a nasty 355 in it right now. I was gonna put the 406 in there, but I really like the way my 355 feels in there.
One of the local junk yards has an 82' Nissan 240Z that I'm thinkin of gettin to drop the 406 in.... But like I said my next one will be expieremental either stroked or destroked..... undecided at this point
