Got a place in the garage cleaned out this afternoon and I'm chomping at the bit. I've almost ordered all the parts.

For those interested:

Chevy 350 block bored .030 over
Turned crank
New pistons
Vortex heads (magnafluxed & cleaned up, valve job, new comp 981 springs, & new seals)
Comp's xe256h cam
Edelbrock intake (to match the vortex heads)
Putting this rig back TBI minus the EGR crapola' (take that obummer)
Flowtech 1 5/8" headers

Not sure on mufflers yet. May just drive around with headers for a few years \:D \:D

Make sure that camshaft is compatable with the TBI system, they won't run right with very much cam unless you modify the computer , if you call comp cams, they will help you out , sounds like it'll be a strong motor, good luck

You're gonna cut the deck down a shade to square it up and remove the rust right?

I always have the decks squared and the mains line bored when building a block for the first time. Won't have to worry about it if you ever freshen it up but on the initial build it doesn't hurt.

Yeah I am going to have block work done too.

Also, I decided to go with a carburetor so I don't have all of the computerized stuff making things more complicated.

Thanks for the input fellas.

I have about a 620 roller cam from comp that I might be willing to part with but it's probably too much for a flat top motor. Nice build!

keep us updated. i just had some work done on my hunting rig. New rear brakes and bearings and u joint and front brakes and tune up and tires. That when my wife said it had to stop. I had alomost went through my entire bonus from work. So I had to sneak the shocks in under the radar. Then she helped me put them on.

I can't believe it's been a month since I've started this post.

I've been working a lot and researching a lot also. I just got it back from the machine shop yesterday and it's all cleaned up with new freeze plugs and cam bearings- ready for that paint!





Ready for it?!





I'm excited and look forward to the parts getting in. And thanks for the cam offer Johnny but I've got another in mind. \:\)
