Ok so here we go. Ive got the 355 block already; should i stay at 355 or go for 383? In my opinion Im guessing the 355 would be an easier build. Question is, parts... Like im guessing the vortec heads would be nice for it and not to costly. Cam choice, I have a brand new 280 rv cam now, or should i go a little different? Crank, most likely el cheapo forged crank, forged rods and pistons. I know you build the motor for certain rpms, to be honest i dont want to spin the motor faster than 7000 because i dont care for the sound. So anything else i should be considering?
If i were you i would just run the biggest turbo cam that comp has for a hyd flat tappet sbc. Then shoot for 8:1 scr and get forged crank rods and pistons. prolly need a dished piston in the 20cc+ range.
