is this a good buy?

I have available to me the following parts, all are brand new never used, he wants about 12K for it all.

Ford motorsport block, 8.2 deck looks like R302 block(3xsplayed caps)
Eagle 4340 crank and rods(L19 bolts) to make 347 stroker
Venolia 8.5 to 1 forged pistons
CNC ported AFR225's complete, with double springs
Crane roller cam and lifters(HYD) for blower
Romac twin keway blower balancer
YT platinum shaft mounted rocker set
All rings and bearings
Full SS bolt package
Head stud set
Mellings oil pump
Copper head gaskets
New timing cover
Rollmaster premium timing set

The block has been tunnel bored, bored, decked, and the entire rotating assembly is balanced within 1/10 of a gram.

The only part that isn't of use to me is the cam.

Does this sound like a good deal?

Don't forget the blower itself - without it, that 8.5:1 comp ratio means the donk will not pull the skin off a custard.

Re: is this a good buy?

talk to the guys at CAPA for idear of what size blower you need the fact is kits cost another 2k to 5k and you have to add this to the cost of the engine so tell the guy selling it that you will offer 2k less ....( the copper gasket will lower the comp to it is about 2mm thicker than felpro gasket this will give you a lower comp than the 8.5 to 1 ). thats how i lowered my engine for 13to1 to about 12 to 1
