PAW

Willy, or anyone still have their PAW catalog?

Any suggestions on where to get a rebuild kit for a 96 350 Vortec? They are hard to find.

Summit- no
Jegs- no
Napa- no

If it don't fit force it, and if all else fails get a bigger hammer!

Re: PAW

No, they don't have kits for anything that new. I'm in the same boat though. Eventually I'm going to rebuild the white truck engine with 7.5 to 1 pistons so I can turn the whipple boost up a bit[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]. But, the newest in the catalog is 95 I believe. I don't think anyone in the aftermarket wants to touch the vortec stuff. Even though I believe the bottom end is the same. I would think any rebuild kit as far as components would work. Just measure your main bearing caps, crank journals and rod caps and see what size bearings you need. If there some weird size get them from the dealer. But you can bore it to whatever you want so pistons and cranks and rods should be standard. Only thing is I don't know how the computer likes compression ratio changes.

Re: PAW

I've found carparts.com and a place called enginekitsonline.com . The prices are high. I'll keep looking. Why won't someone else make them?

Re: PAW

That company doesn't have anything newer than 95 either. I have no idea why, only thing I can think of is the computer junk they don't want to mess with.

Re: PAW

Did you talk to cust service @ Summit on a special order? Surely someone they deal with makes a kit, or at least buy the parts seperate. You know Fel-Pro has the gasket kit, Silvolite must have the pistons, and Clevite on the bearings, Total Seal rings, Melling oil pump, Crane, Crower, or GM for cam n lifters, etc.

Re: PAW

Hey chevota, your a cam guru of sorts. I know that cam companies make cams such as the compucam for computer controlled cars like my truck. Do they make performance cams that are computer friendly? Cause, on the white truck I eventually plan on getting a whipple twin screw supercharger, but not the whimpy little ones most people have, a real 10 pound boost unit[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]. And I want to build the engine with blower pistons. But, do they make a blower grind cam thats computer friendly? Lol, I hate california smog laws.

Re: PAW

Is that blower smog legal? I'd consult the "chip" mfg's for how far you can push the computer with a stock chip or their chip, they might even have a "blower" chip ready to go. I don't really think it's an issue as far as the cam goes, a small to medium cam would be plenty for a blower motor. I think your big problem will be supplying enough fuel to it. The cam will dictate rpm range more than anything else, so if your computer shuts down at 5000 then a cam that makes good usable power beyond that is kinda pointless.

Names like "compucam" are just a name they pulled out of their ass for marketing. Maybe it's more appealing to the consumer, and/or easier for the tech rep to tell the consumer what cams he can and shouldn't run. The computer will dictate what it can or can't handle, so a 230 degree cam might work in a Chev but not a Ford, or in a '90 Chev but not a '95. I don't have a clue what computer can handle what, that's why I suggest the chip guys since they have to research all that for each computer.

BTW, I want to make the big bucks like you so I can buy all this cool stuff too!
