There is no replacement for displacement......

so go with a 347......

: Pro Power : The engine parts professionals


if you are planning to use stock take in consideration of it limitation.....

FYI its takes more that horspower to run low numbers.....

Better put in you build budget a good portion for the needed suspension upgrades......

Well maybe a sticky needs to be made about that little misconception. If you do plan to run that what budget are you looking at?

Run mids 10's on 7K is not going to be easy.....

I have about 7k into mine, it's probably going to be mid-low 12s and I have not started on the suspension yet. I also still have the stock short block, which saved me quite a bit.
You have 7 grand into the car already? Is that including price of car?

Well, if those AFR heads are not part of the $7K, you'll probaly come close. I know those heads are like $1800 alone. So are you spending an additional $7K beyond what you already have?
