    Got the stroker done tonight (almost) and I am stoked. Im sure this thing is gonna kick some butt over my stock 305. All I have left to do is put plugs and wires on. Also, everything colorful is powdercoated and I must say it looks good! The colors are candy blue and black, with the manifold chrome.

    Anyways here are some specs:
    383 c.i.
    Scat crank
    PM rods
    9.7 comp ratio speed pro pistons
    vortec heads
    Gmpp 383HT cam
    roller rockers
    Holley TBI
    Msd Ignition

    Finally, I would like to thank all of the people here who helped answer my questions.

    I have a link in my profile to my webshots homepage that shows the build-up and some of the other thing im doing to the Blazer.

    Thanks again guys!

    We had the engine tin and other engine parts from the '76 Porsche 912E powder coated at a shop near the San Antonio airport. If you look in the paper or call someone with an airplane shop they can direct you to a powder coating shop. They normally powder coat airplane parts, but they took ours and let us choose between a lot of colors.

    Me and my dad powdercoated the stuff. You can buy the equipment for around 130 bucks, you just have to get an oven or a kiln. We bought a kiln for 25 bucks off ebay. That powdercoat is tough stuff though, and I love it.
