    I've got a 350 core out of a 93 burb. i havent pulled it apart yet and was wonderin what yall would do with it. This is on a budget by the way. My plan i to tear it all down and have it bored out just enought to clean the cylnders. Then order a 383 kit from northern auto parts. Run an edelbrock air gap intake, vortec heads, and and edelbrock carb. Im not sure on the cam but i was looking into Comp's "big time torque" setups.

    OR

    just rebuild the 350 with a few minor modifications;) . IE cam, pistons, heads.

    Any other ways yall would do this?

    How much money, everything included, do you plan on sinking into this engine?

    I dunn i was planning on doing it for my senior project and then put it in my truck. Im a junior now so i've got about 2 years to do it. I was thinking about starting now and just taking alot of pictures and documenting everything. All in all i was thinking around 1500 for everything? im not realy sure of what im gettin into. lol

    DD, mud, no dessert rock trail; maybe center your torque and horsepower around ~3500. It will still take some umph to get those 35s started. Just my opinion.:D
