    327 build up

    I'm building a 327 small journal 30 over, its got a stock crank and rods, speed pro forged pistons .125 dome, comp cam, 501/501 lift, 244/244 duration, camel back heads ported and polished, screw in studs and guideplates, 2,02 int, 160 exh, double valve springs, 1.5 roller rockers.

    I want ideas about what intake to use and pushrod size. i have a weiand tunnal ram 2by4 set up, but i'm going for street and strip. Any info would help.
    thanks

    Nice engine. Don't see to many stock cubes any more. Seems like everyone is going big or bigger these days. I commend you on your choose of engine 8) Just keep the RPM's around 6,000 with those rods and she'll live forever!
    So whats it going into? Street and strip? Auto w/stall or standard trans.? What size of carb,vaccum or double? Rear gears?

    Does have a opinin on what I could chage or what can I do to get the max HP out of the motor? I'm new at all this performance and stuff, but I do know you got to have the stuff match up to have it right. Anything would help

    Victor Jr's are easy to find and work well, the tunnel ram will only be grief in your case. 5/16 .080 wall PR will work fine for you. As long as you used stock length valves, stock length PR's will be fine. A 4778 700 or 4779 750 would be a good place to start as well.

    I would put on a RPM Air-Gap intake and with only 327 cubes I would stick with the 650 carb. The tunnel ram would look "Awesome" but you would have to run some small carbs on it like 500cfm or 600cfm vaccums.
    A set of smaller AFR alum. heads would really open it up 8) Hey maybe even a 75 or 100hp shot of nitrous for the strip!
