Re: 351 help
What do you have now? An unbuilt 351?
A 351 with zero deck height, camwise something similar to F238, 185cc heads CHI manifold, 4-1 extractors and you'll make 500-550hp. If you have a manual? No problems provided it's not a single rail. If auto? You need a 3500rpm ish stall convertor. Rearend wise? 3.5's with a manual or 3.7's with an auto. 3.7's will work with the manual also. Carb wise? Go a 750dp 4779 or a HP model.
Cyl head prices are all on CHI's website. 3500rpm convertors range from $200 secondhand -> $1000 brand new. If you have a nine inch diff? The ratio change/reco will cost $700 ($500 in parts and $200 labour). Carb? $400 secondhand and upwards for new.
