A 347 is a 302 bored .030 over and fitted with a 3.40" stroke crankshaft with the correct pistons and rods.
A 331 is also a 302 bored .030 over and using a 3.25 stroke crank with the correct rods and pistons.
You really can't bore a 302 block past about .060" and have any degree of safety as far is block life goes, even then not all 302 blocks can go that big......

There's a lot of good places to buy the kits from.
One bit of info however, someplaces will tell you it's a balanced kit or they will balance it for $75 or something.
Thats B.S. unless they have the harmonic balncer and the flexplate/flywheel that you're going to be using.
I would aviod the big mail order places like Summit and Jeg's simply because there prices are higher than than some of the smaller places.
I've done a couple engines and I got the rotating assembly from Coast High Performance in California. They have good service and fast shipping. They are part of a company that makes forged pistons so if you want a specail relief or anything like that they are good with it......

Remember also that you'll need good heads and a cam that's different for either the 331 or 347 engines.
302 parts make 302 power and that is not what you're looking for.
Trick Flow, AFR, Edelbrock all make good useable heads for 331/347 engines.
Comp Cams has new stuff on the shelf for them also.........

It's a very cost effective way to go IMHO.
Not real cheap but maybe the best.
Really figure about $5000 by the time it's all built, balanced and machined.
Price would be about the same doing something like a 408 instead of a 347.
I've included buying everything new in the prices, if you can find 'deals' someplace that's good too.......

Pending yr its not the same money doing a 408/347 not even close. The 776 is a great cam I used it in my buddies 331 he loves it. My 347 topend included 3500$.
im running the 35-556-8 and its awesome good n/a power and loves the gas!
