Thanks, Bonus comes in Feb should have everything to the shop by the end of Feb going to go with a roller cam this time and an Air Gap, just going to use the shop for machine work put it together myself. I have a virgin block to cut. The heads need new seats and stronger springs. Going for 350 - 375 at the crank. Just a nice running street motor.

Sweet, I love watching these things come together!

350-375 is no slouch.

That sounds like a healthy motor. I assume your planning for 9.5-10:1 compression. What are you thinking for a cam?
