Thanks for the advice Eric. Great name by the way. (same here) The heads are being fully rebuilt right now. So that takes care of that part. I have not bought a carb yet. I'm on the fence between a DP or VS 700/750. For the bottom end I have a Crower steel crank, 3.75" stroke. 5.7 rods and a set of hyperutectic pistons I may upgrade to forged. I have not done the mock up yet. At that time I will see if I want to deck the block to get things dialed in. I do have a hi flow water pump. The cam mentioned in the other thread looks like a winner at this point. It should be a really fun motor with this T56 behind it, good brakes and suspension will let me abuse it even more. I have a great machinist doing all the prep for me including balance. I have very high quality parts going in this and refuse to short cut anything on it.
