If you build a good 347 you won't need 9psi.

Mine was $3624 and change. just the short block. Low compression 347, and it will be boosted someday (not supercharged, hehe). Add in all the other upgrades and crap you'll be were im at, about $15,000+ not including cost of car and lost o labor. It'll be sweet though!!

Any boosted app, you should get a Dart or Man O War.


They will outlast the car and sell the moment you wanna get rid of it.

5-7K for a STOCK BLOCK 347?!?! I just priced out a 347, canfield 195's, custom cam, balancer, etc. for like 4K

I'm guessing you were referring to a full motor...........

Build it from the bottom-up.

If you are insistent on a 347 plus a supercharger, you need to look into a DART.

Just be sure that you really are going to build a 347 AND a supercharger. Reason is, if you just want to build a NA 347 you can stick with the stock block. You can build a NASTY NA 347 car and put out gobs of power. Just dont buy an aftermarket block and not really need it, they are tons of money.
