A Relative of mine just put together a 350 (truck blocks are the same demensions pass. car blocks for SBC's). He used:
4 bolt 010/020 block
GM steel crank
Eagle 4340 5.7" rods
Speed Pro forged flat top pistons,.030 over
GM ZZ4 Hot hyd cam
GMPP Fast Burn Vortec heads
Edelbrock Vortec Performer RPM intake
MSD billet distributor (ready to run version)
Quardrajet carb from a 69 3/4 ton 4x4 truck
Brenzski (spell ?) ported early vette ram horn exhaust manifolds
His engine builder dynoed this combo and it produced 386 hp at 5400 rpm and maintained over 400 ftlbs of torque from 3600 to 5000 rpm. He put this in a 70 4x4 truck and that is why he uses the ram horns. Had he used a good set of headers and a larger carb he should get to the 400 hp level. He drives this all over the freeway's and offroad, it has great throttle response (I have only seen better from EFI systems) and hauls the truck around better that most new performance cars.
67 CAMARO R/S CLONE, 355/turbo 350, 200hp NOS,12 bolt,etc...
