Stud mount.....

You think they are UPR? Basically what I am getting at is if they uppers have a polyurethane bushing on the body side then sell them and find a set that are adjustable and have a heim joint. It will allow the rear end to not bind up on launch. If not then just stick with new stock uppers.

Yeah they aren't adjustables, you think they will give me a problem even if I'm not looking for crazy power? I mean I seen people run stock suspensions lol

They won't give you a problem. Its just not the best setup using the stock suspension. Basically you won't know there is an issue. The UPR's are good control arms for the price but I personally won't use them. Just personal preferences...

That depends on what valve springs you run and what cam you use.

I'd use a kit from CHP, I've done a couple of them and I haven't any problems, they are also quick with shipping.
For heads I think I'd go with either Edelbrock performers or AFR 185's.
Id get the stud mount type heads.
Comp Cams has a line of stroker cams out there now if you want to stay hydraulic roller.....

Currently running both a 331 and a 347, I would go with the 347. But if you are dead set on the 331, it will not be a bad choice. I have the CHP rotating assembly in my 347. It's an excellent kit with all SCAT parts(save for the pistons). If you want a mild but strong street set-up, I would run the AFR 185's, Comp Cam XE274HR(or a custom of similar spec) and a ported cobra intake. My 347 with the above parts(save for an un-ported cobra) made 351rwhp/380trq w/600 miles on the shortblock. Numbers in sig are with a 35 shot.

hey im thinking about doing the kit too, do you guys like Scat? I can get the kit at Jegs which is only down the road so it would be easier.
