Re: Time to Rebuild the 327
If you are going to completely go through the engine, and want 350 HP out of it, consider turning it into a 350. Not that 350 HP would be difficult out of a 327, just easier with the extra cubes of a 350. I doubt it would cost much more $$ IF you need a crank and pistons. If both are good as is, then I'd stay 327.
If 350 HP is your goal, I'd stick with the heads you have.
As to the hood clearance - I have a Performer RPM and a Holley 650 and my FLAT hood clears. It's close, but it clears. If I ever break a driver's side motor mount, I'm in trouble! Oh yeah, I use a GM drop-base air cleaner.
