if you arent planning on adding much nitrous or a blower then the stock block will be fine but you need to ask yourself if you are really planning on keeping it "stock 347" or in the back of your mind are you lying to yourself like i did??

if you are going to spray it you could spray prolly a 100shot on a stock block 347 but anything else need to get an aftermarket block

you might look into a big bore 347 kit to keep rod stress down too

you can get a regular 347 rotating assembly for around $950 and then they are prolly gettin that TF stuff for $1800 or so for heads and cam, magnaflux and machining prolly costing you $1000 from them, plus balancing

just take your time dont jump into anything you arent ready for

Thats what I was thinking, it will save a ton of headaches. Pay the 4 grand. pull my engine and install the new one. I wont have to worrk about installing the cam or timing chain etc etc itll come all ready to install..

I plan to have all of my brackets and accessories powdercoated so I would probably pull the car apart a week in advance and install the entire engine in a day or so.

Makes sence right?

The engine from THR has a 3 week turn around so I could have the car prepped and ready by then with no issues..

Ruger,

thanks for taking the time to get with me on this. I am expecting to make a decition on what im buying this week. I am planning on taking the majority of the parts off the car this coming weekend. I am going to paint all of my accessiries and brackets this weekend with POR15. Itll match my upper / lower performer II intake perfectly.

If you hae any suggestions for me please let me know!

you will need bigger than 24#ers for a 347, you probably wasted your money on those,

strong i will reply to your questions in a bit, gotta do some work first

24ers prolly good to 310HP
