My questions for the community are:
what type of lifterd should i be running?
rough estimates on potential hp and tq i should make?
and last but not least are there any suggestions for potential changes to my parts list?
oh i am running lower compression because i plane to add a turbo at a later date?

Thank you all who reply for your time, suggestions, knowledge and estimations.

Sincerely, Max

whoever sells you the cam should have matching lifters...
Toss BBK stuff, get Accufab TB and JLT CAI
Either build it for power or build it for boost that is added at the build or you will have a fat slow pig, I had a low compression 347 it make 245rwhp, someone had removed the supercharger..
At 11:1, you could easily make 400hp...don't forget good long tube headers and a huge ass fuel system (90 mm mass air, 42# injectors and a 255lph in tank pump)...then it needs a great custom tune
How about a beefed up transmission? Rear end, axles, suspension upgrades to support the new power?
...it's expensive, plan wisely...it takes buckets of cash to build a car
I'd never build another car, buy someone else's money pit, don't dig your own

budget and 347 are an oxymoron...I'd suggest a standard rebuild at 10:1 with the trick flow heads, use forged pistons/rods and a supercharger or turbo could be added down the road...not to mention a 347 can be a beast, it takes a big cam to make the power, mine had a 600 lift, at idle it shook the earth...something to consider if it's a daily

lift on a cam doesnt make big power. Cam design is key to the power amounts you make. Duration is a big part and lob separation is all in cam design. If you want a motor that will perform now but can easy be boosted at any time build a motor to have around 9-9.5:1 compression. This will allow it to still perform as an everyday drive and still be a performance motor. Just make sure your cam choice works for your application, turbo cams and supercharger cams are different.

ok thank you. if i decide not to boost how do you think my set up would due only changing my pistons to flat tops instead of the dish. my cr would be around 10.4:1 i think?

I know this can be a tough question to answer but how much power should I realistically expect from it?

If you plan to run any decent boost on a stock block 347 it will not last very long before it splits on you. You really need a Dart block.
