i personally would do the 347 and i am starting to now,
( had a guy with 3 stock 302s for sale and i emailed him about them but he threw them all out cause they were in the way one was a 90' with only 100k miles on it tear ) anyway
id like to say i touched every piece in the engine and i know everything about it
its gunna be expensive, but the $ never stops with the 5.0
it will be much more time consuming and probably more $ but its all in the fun of it!

If you are going to build a 347 and boost it,it will never live in a stock block, in the real world a one piece rear main block always breaks around 600 hp at the wheel.I don't care who you are or who you know,the block can not handle the torsional loads at the hp level.You could put the turbo on your engine now make some good power and in the mean time, before you break it, you can start on the next one making it handle a 1000 hp and turn it down to make safe 800.I also don't care for the 347 in that deck height.Go 331 ci in an 8.2 unless you use big bore or use a 9.2 or 9.5 deck, it all cost the same when your at that level.
Worlds fastest 357 c.i.d.,With one Holley Dominator,One nitrous system,Turbo 400,Nine inch,All steel and glass,except hood,95% stock floor,Almost all stock interior,1983 Crimson Cat,Mercury Capri RS in my garage.(8.31 166)Under Reconstruction!
with the 347 your going to need the crank, rods, pistons, rings, bearings, gaskets, machine work. on top of that your going to need good heads, push rods, bunch of new gaskets, new head bolts/studs, and exhaust upgrades would be good. youll see 350-375rwhp on pump gas
with the turbo, you just need the kit and fuel upgrades. the kit will of course come with headers and dp so no need for exhaust upgrades. youll see 400-500rwhp depending on boost level on pump gas
depends on what you want tho
When the turbo spins, the bullsh*t ends
