    Alright i've decided that my dog of a 350 needs to go, eventually. I've already got another 350sbc to rebuild. How much should i bore it over?
    What exactly would the right combination be for a strong (high torque) but still fast motor? Which "kit should i buy" and is there a place thats better than others? I'm thinking i should put new heads on the motor while i've got it torn down, any suggestions on what are best? I've read that "the longer rod the better":haha: how would you figure out what is the right lenght for my application? Does i vary on the heads or what?

    thnx alot

    You can just buy one now from GM with a warranty :thumb:

    When I get around to mine , a few years from now , it will be long rod , aftermarket forged crank , and a 88 and newer roller block with the heads etc to be determined after I decide whether it should go in a truck or my A-body .
