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.
