Or you can do a simple cylinder head swap to a low cr 76+cc home ported low buck 920-441-487 GM smogger head (people throw these out too)
and bolt on a 177 weiand blower. 550+hp on your near stock short block, cast pistons and all, with that lunati cam. A fraction of the cost of your "real motor" Because the engine compression ratio will be a low 7.5:1 (80cc heads -15cc stock dished pistons) and combustion is always under control the cast pistons never get into trouble.
The stock short block will take silly silly power as long as combustion is controlled and normal.
