    Well I'm picking up my new k5 tomorrow /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I was just wondering what this engine is built for (torque, top end, etc.) Here's the stats

    350 cubic inches:(.030" overbore for a total of 355ci )
    Balanced and blueprinted by King Balancing
    Isky Camshaft: 262 supercam(P/N201262): .290 lift, 262° duration, 108° lobe center
    Edelbrock Performer #2101 Intake Manifold
    9:1 compression ratio
    Standard Chevrolet Heads
    Quadrajet 4MV, 750 CFM carburetor

    I don't really know anything about this kind of stuff so if any of you could let me know.. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Judging by the lift numbers I'd say the duration spec's are 'advertised', not at .050", which makes that cam pretty mild.

    Stock heads and carb with slightly higher than stock compression ratio. Should idle smooth and pull well off idle and probably run out of useable rpm around 4500 rpm.

    So it should be a fairly reliable engine for my daily driver, with a little more go than stock, right? /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    little more yeah. Pretty close to my motor(I have headers, intake, diff but similar cam, new carb, and port matching), and it gets up a little better than stock. I'm happy with it. I'd be happier with a lot more power but thats not in the cards right now.

    Its a low end torque engine. The stock heads and mild camshaft will create optimal velocities at lower RPMs giving you a nice torque range. Perfect for a truck.
