A little update on my car. The new 351W is IN. This thing has an insane amount of torque, smoke's the tire's all the way through second gear. It is also very QUICK. I built this motor with a little over $2000, machine work and assembly. Some of the features include: Edelbrock Perfromer RPM Intake, Holley 750 Carb, Comp Cams XE274/286 Cam with matching valve springs, retainers, seals, etc..Summit Engine Rebuild Kit, HV Melling Oil Pump, Flamethrower Ignition, and Holley High Flow Fuel Pump (just to name a few goodie's). I used the header's from my 289, with a little adjustment from the muffler shop. Now all I need is a Posi, I already had to rotate tires . Take care guys.
