    I run a 305 right as of now but plans are for either a 350-400 or a BB. These plans are of course way down the road.

    TBI 454 right now. I am pulling it this spring to add Multi-Port and Edelbrock Aluminum heads and a roller cam. If I have any $$ left over, I will be adding and Eagle ESP forged 4.25" crank. Luckily I already have a set of Eagle ESP H-beam 6.385" rods hanging around and a set of Weisco 10:1 pistons /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif But the crak my have to wait since the heads and MPFI are gonna set me back a bit...

    388 stroker. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    The only plans I have are to possibly change the induction. I'll go Q-jet or TPI or Edelbrock MPFI if I win the lottery or something. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    TBI 350 with around 160,000 miles on the clock. It's starting to blow smoke on startup so it's just breaking in! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I'll either rebuild it with a mild cam and some head porting or just go to a 454 with TBI. depends on how much ching I have in the bank at the time /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Currently running a built 406 small block with 9,000 miles on it so far. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif It's got a high volume oil pump, comp 268H cam, 9.2:1 compression, edel. performer intake, retuned edel. performer Q-jet, recurved perf. HEI,K&N filter, hooker competition full length headers, dual 40 series flowmasters.

    Future plans are AFR 195cc aluminum heads, 50HP shot of squeeze, and maybe edel. multi port fuel injection. That should put me around 475HP or so and BBC spankin' torque. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
