Hi Guys, The stock 350 i had laying around the rod bearings are gone and so the crankshaft. now i could build the 350 but it's a bare block so i have to buy everything. here in the netherlands the parts are about 2 times the price in the usa Now i could buy an complete LT1 swap from an caddilac fleetwood hurse. 60.000 miles and has an 4L60E tranny complete with alternator hitorque starter, powersteering and all the stuff for about 2000 euro Advances of the gen2 lt1 Reversed fow cooling ( so can run higher compression because the heads are cooled first ), and has already roller camshaft, and stock hypereutic flat top 10.2:1 pistons, the caddy version is the one with the good flowing iron vortech style heads. it also has stronger rods. Plans Putting my sbc vic jr intake on it ( modify holes ) putting a 650 edelbrock carb plugging the optispark and put in an HEI low mount the alternator put sbc headers on it mount an lt4 hotcam or an other nice roller cam fit high sbc 350 alu valve covers with an adapterplate (centerbolt) then i have an clean looking carburator sbc engine when my 73 camaro is ready and if i want to maybe convert to holley sniper or something equal only problem is then the 4l60e so i have to make work the stock ecu for it. or putting a th2004r that is stage2 (buying an transcontrollor is to expensive for that gearbox i think) what do you guys think about this plans. power wise and cost savings wise i dont want to keep the FI because then i would swap an LS. i really like the SBC sound and looks. sorry of my langue i did my best.
