Ok so I have a 350 from a 89 Camaro that I am going to stroke to 383, and do a full rebuild.

It will be my daily driver, but I would also like to take it to the track occasionally. Fuel economy isn't a problem; if I wanted to save money on gas, i would buy a Civic. Also, money isn't a huge issue, as this project will take place over the next year or two. I want high performance with out sacrificing too much streetability. My HP goal is around 450

Here is my parts list so far:

Heads: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/AFR-0919/
Cam: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CC...12-8/?rtype=10
Intake Manifold: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EDL-7501/
Carb: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HLY-0-4779S/

Let me know what you think of this build. I just want to know if these look like they would work for what I am wanting.
Please let me know if there is anything I should change etc..

Welcome to Smokemup. The only problem I see is that your goals are actually a little too low. If I were you, I would copy a combo from AFR's site. They use the 195 Eliminator heads (no cost difference from the 180's), the same intake you have listed, same carburetor, 1 3/4 headers, and a Comp Cams 12-433-8 hydraulic roller setup (236* in - 242* ex. at 0.050"). It made almost 460 ft. lbs. at 2500 rpm and peaked at 503 at 5500. This would be an absolute blast to drive in a street car. Check it out on AFR's site. If you follow their combo, you should pretty much know what you will have which is a plus - let somebody else do the work sometimes. Clay

if you have the money. im running an old MSD 6AL with a factory HEI dist using just the pickup. you could buy the 6AL-2 and still come out cheaper than that distributor. just a thought.

You could also find a factory HEI unit and install a MSD module in it. I think the quality of the parts in an older factory unit may be better than the HEI units you buy today. I also run an older 6AL that is triggered by a Pertronix module in a points style distributor (for firewall clearance in a Nova). Clay
