Re: Engine build or swap?!?!?!

Crazy part about it so far is that I'm getting GREAT deals on all the parts I have picked up and I still surpassed my budget REAL quick. Definitely do your research on what the max you could pay for every product is when you are ready to build. Once you have those figures, come up with a "reserve" fund that will cover anything that was unexpected. With that said, I have once again fallen prey to the quote of.....

"Buying parts I can't afford....
With money I don't have....
To impress people I don't know...."

Sounds like a nice setup. Wish I could afford a set of heads right now.

Re: Engine build or swap?!?!?!

If you want the race heads i would suggest more cam then the HO cams. Of course you'll see a gain with the better flowing heads but you wont be able to take full advantage of heads with a stock cam.

I had an HO with cams and supercharger and I have a set of CNC'd race heads with going on my 2nd set of cams not includind my stock HO cams so I have been around this a little while.
