Thank you, I was looking on Jegs and was thinking about something with more Hp with fuel injection, I think anything chevy will fit in there.

Jeg's and Summit both have a fair selection. Fuel injection will really help in those hill pulls too. I don't know what type your thinking of running, but if you budget allows look into the full EFI system so each cylinder has it's own injector, you will get much better throttle response once it is dialed in.

Make it a 383 stroker motor or put those particular parts on a 400sbc. Put a nice cam & heads or chip whatever it needs. Im an old school sd ch guy where everything chevy interchanges except 305 heads on a 350 or 40p sb. Unless u notch the bloch for the valves

Damn i cant see my writing as u can tell above lol
