Looking to order the HCI combo sometime today. I'm going to meet someone today to make a possible purchase of a trick flow intake with a 70mm throttle body for really cheap. The guy doesn't know what kind of trick flow intake it is, so hopefully it's a track heat because he said he knew it was for up to 6500 rpms

Local machine shops want upwards of $300 for angle milling. I'm considering just going with the TFS top end kit and call it a day.

Don't forget, the tfs head might need tfs pistons, that requires the whole engine be removed and broke down, ask them if you need them

"Speed" and "budget-build" are diametrically opposed terms. Save your money and build a 351w stroker for the car. Expect to spend at LEAST $7k, and that's if you cheap out and get a cast bottom end (as opposed to forged), and then get lucky a nd stumble into a good deal on used intake/carb). You can spend less money on less capable heads as well, but AFRs are the hot ticket, and even if you use their 205's, you should see AT LEAST 400HP at the rear wheels with a knobby bump stick. The benefit of the 351w is that it doesn't have to work as hard to get more power.

OK, what size injectors,TB,MAF,and Fuel pump should I be getting?

I was thinking 190lph fuel pump would be good, along with a 75mm TB and MAF and 24lb injectors? Or should I go 30lb?
