Then when you call the machine shops, ask them how much it would cost to rebuild a short block including the following but not limited to: clean and magnaflux for cracks align hone mains for. I know internals of an engine and functions but exactly what cam durations and lift numbers actually mean and how to match it all togather I don't know. Right now I have a 302 60 over with 10-1 comp. I agree and disagree with some of you guys, and I think some of this is just simple clarity of a couple important points, 1 are you going to run a stock, non rebuild bottom end, or rebuild it?

I was looking for a Hyd roller cam that will work as good or better than the none available Hyd flat tappet crate engine cam and with his 96 roller cam block. With a slightly milder cam and with a set of flat-tops, I would think this combo could tickle the hi 11's on 94 octane.

I might install that one 2 to 4 degree's retarded myself. While the power numbers speak for themselves, the real question is how long can a factory block take this kind of abuse before splitting in half? That way, a performance company has already matched individual components for maximum flow and performance.

That combination was good for 391 hp at 5,900 rpm and 405 lb-ft at 4,300 rpm. Maybe I should have gone a little closer.

What I am looking for is a budget way of overhauling a 351w block to make it street capable in the 5k rpm range.
