I've got a stock 305ci 2bbl, probably out of a 76-79 truck, in my '67.
As you all know, this doesn't make any power at all. In the future I want to change the engine with a home-built 383 with app. 450hp.
My question is, can I start adding parts for the 383 on my 305, so that I now have some extra power and when I finally have all the needed parts, I can build the 383.....
I was thinking of adding a Holley 4bbl and an air-gap style inlet, maybe some headers and some cams on my 305.
Every part must be suitable for the 383.....if I loose some power on the 305 due to these 383 parts, I could't care.... It's the future that counts.
Do I have to search for a specific engine year if I want to build the 383 (because the engine will get the parts from my 76-79 305)
I thought all these engines can use the same paarts if you look at the headers, inlet, carb, cams.
Thanks for any input.
