    I take it you're going with a stock 350 set up? What's that going to run you?

    Any mods?

    Way cool ... green with envy

    The engine is all stock except headers and 2-1/4" exhaust. I want to add TPI soon. I want to have something that is going to last and have little problems as possible. The last motor I built lasted 4 years and was great, but I need the beast to stay running and having the RV cam and roller rockers are great but it's not when you have to climb inside the vehical to work on it. So my buddy is going to take my old motor for his
    68 Camero...

    Well after 18 days of bing in the shop my new engine, radiator, & A/C should be done tonight. Finally..... Renting a car for 2 weeks is to much money........ turned that in last Wensday. After the bill went over $500 I returned it.
