heres the plan, well kinda anyways, (350 ideas)
my 350 is pushing 250k miles or over I have no way of knowing for sure,
its gettn time for bonuses to be handed out at work so I was thinkn either lift it or start building a motor. motor would be smarter move knowing this ones could puke any day now.
heres the list of parts.
350 short block 4 bolt main, the kit comes unassembled with forged flat top pistons. rods pistons installed on rods. all bearins seals and gaskets, well not quite all gaskets but most. timing gears and chain. well anyways dont have it infront of me to list here, but it runs 1650 for the kit.
then I was thinking to toss a edlebrock cam, intake, maybe heads, thats kinda iffy at the 1200 for the pair with valves and all installed. some shorty headers. or instead of heads maybe do the multi point fuel injection by eldebrock then save up for the heads for later. hmmm what else was I thinking.
I totatld everything all up with tax and it comes ti just under 5grand, wich is kinda steep, ohhhhh I had my exhaust price in that to, wich I wont tell you what Ive got in mind cause I no what kinda responses Ill get from it. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
I could do the short block and toss my junk on it for around 2500 and that would be running or hop it up for another grand or so with just heads and have decent motor with potential to build off later.
or leave the motor all stock with my parts and whipple super charger and id be at 5500 as rough guess on price whipple installed and running. the whipple idead is kinda of dream thought but who knows
what do you think am I out of my mind.
ohhhhhhh and Im wanting this to be tourgue motor, so the cam may not be needed, thatl probly just bump my peak power to higher rpm wich inst what I want to do. how we get all the parts rounded up to get this thing to run like a cummins 500ft lb of tourger peakin at 2500-3000 at most, yeah yeah I know that would be hard to do. yes I may be truly out of my mind on that one
thankx for your time and ideas
