96 351w rebuild

This summer i am planning on rebuilding my engine, sort of.
I am going to put on world castings windsor jr. heads, edelbrock performer intake and camshaft. I was wondering how much work it would be for me to do this. I am pretty handy with tools and i have a couple weeks during the summer to do this. I wanted to know of any tips on doing this or what. I was also wondering if anybody has used world castings heads and if they are worth it or not. thanks.

You may have to do some work arounds. In 96 they changed the electronic system, and engine parts I have seen have only been for the 80-95 model years. I think your computer might be too sensitive for some upgrades, so I have heard. Can anyone else back me up on this?

In 96, vehicle emissions went to OBD I classification. You may want to check out the compatibility of your intended parts with OBD (if you even have it). You are doing a mild build-up, so it may not affect you. the work you are doing is pretty easy. If you are going with a new cam, get new lifters, and change the timing set as well. You'll have your chain and gears off to swap the cam anyway, you might as well spend the extra $50 for a new set. Get yourself a good manual, and follow the steps. make sure you torque everything down to the specs., and in the proper sequence. Repost any questions you have.
