    327's kick azz!
    I built one for a buddys 1/2 ton long bed 2wd about 5 years ago.
    Once that thing was all set up and broke in, that truck would fly!
    We used mostly stage 1 & 2 components from PAW and kept the total to under 2K, course we already had the block to start with too.

    It'll be atleast a year befor I will have the $$$ saved up to get one, but I think a 327 would be alot of fun. I'm thinking Comp cams 292 magnum cam, Pete Jackson gear drive (Machined for more noise) Dart Machinery's "Kool-can" intake manifold and a Barry Grant 750cfm Demon carb with mechanical secondarys. Hooker headers, 2.5" dual exhaust with a pair of Flowmasters 40's. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'd like to have anywhere from 9.5 to 1 to 10 to 1 compression. I always use 91 or higher octane pump gas.

    After talking to the tech staff at Barry Grant, they recomended this carb for the motor I plan on building sometime over the next few years. It's a 650cfm Mighty Demon. [​IMG] Mechanical secondarys !!!! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I'm thinking a mild built 327 with a 700r4 and 3.73's. What do you think of that combo ?? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    ran the numbers and my initial hunch seemed right. 292H is just too much cam for that setup unless you get some really nice heads. Even then the 286H will make some more torque and horsepower throughout the powerband. I ran the numbers with standard 881 Chevy heads, then again with AFR 190 heads. The 881s are around 330 horsepower, the AFRs over 400, but thats another deal. With both sets of heads the 286H made more power. I didn't see any mention of heads in all this. All those parts you chose are really nice but if you are going to smog heads with big chambers the compression you want will be a little hard to get, the power won't be great either.
