2 will run better. the air gap is a good manifold. the regular performer i just throw out when i come across them. junk.

thats a good setup on a budget. i dont like most of the parts gm put into that motor. i honestly think the crank and rods are junk. but thats just me. these days you can build a pretty solid motor for 3g's and it wont break a sweat at 450hp.

you can get a good shortblock pretty cheap. and aluminum heads can be had cheap as well as sportsman 2 heads or iron eagles.

Yeah $2500 max is all I can spend. Just going in a daily driver. No high hp needed. Just need enough to do the occasional towing/hauling.

that will do but not heavy hauling. light stuff yea no problem. but thats a 260hp motor. 350 tq but still isnt the strongest. thats basically stock replacement.

i still would run the package 2. the air gap helps a bit with keeping temp down.

this ones 2900 with everything ready to run

Blueprint Engines SB-Chevy Budget Stomper w/Cast Iron Heads 355ci/ 310HP/ 360TQ - JEGS


other then that it may almost be worth rebuilding yours. the rotating assemblies are cheap these days for driver motors.

did you blow then engine compltely? if the blocks still good id rebuild it.

yea but as long as a rod didnt let go the block is normally worth saving. as long as the bottom end stayed together.

whats beat is your in alabama. i have 3 blocks, 2 cranks, some other misc stuff you could do a pretty nice motor with. all GM stuff too.

i have a 010 4 bolt studded main block, a stock 010 4 botl main standard bore block, 2 factory GM forged steel cranks, ones from a 327 the other is from a 350.


see if you were to build a bottom end, you could have a forged crank which will hold 650hp without a problem, could get eagle i beam rods which will hold 550 easy , hyper pistons which work great in a daily motor. run a set of cast piston rings, m55hv oil pump, stock style pan, double roller chain, nice little dress up kit and a set or smaller iron eagle heads. would be a good motor probably around 350 hp depending on cam. just run a regular flat tappet cam and be done.


crate motors scare me. companies try to rush things to much and stuff gets overlooked.
