Great job! I was already fascinated by your first "budget" build.
Now I am getting closer to my own build. I could get a core 360 with the right heads to use the 343 pistons.
Some questions I have, just to know what I need to order:
- Have you used new bolts on the rebuild or did you re-use the old ones?
- Same with the valve springs. New or used dones?
- what is the difference between the cam in this build compared to your preferred 268H? This one has better torque at lower RPM, but less HP at the high end?
I am not looking to build a race monster, I just want the engine to perform according to its possibilities.
Other parts I will be using as I have them on my engine:
-Edelbrock Performer intake
-Holley 4 barrel 600CFM
-IMPCO 300 Propane system
-Standard headers, but Smog "humps" are cleaned
-2,5" dual exhaust
-MSD 8523 Ignition
