    *Already have solid Motor Mounts
    Torque Converter
    4 Core Radiator
    Twin Electric Fans
    Pulleys/Brackets
    Headers
    U-Joint upgrade
    New shocks and coil springs (need anyways)

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    We have the 502, but I want to R & D a new build to sell so were going to build a 505 or 510ci, 4340 forged bottom end, Profiler Heads, either a Sniper Intake or Edel Victor R manifold.

    Once its in im going to lay down some 1/8 and 1/4 mile numbers for the Team Chevelle website as well.

    fuel pump , bigger lines, tranny cooler , I would upgrade the axles in that rearend , you will have to do some work to get it to hook up - those chevelles are chanllenging at times to bite . I would also stiffen up the chassis a lil so you don't pancake the car . To help us out - what are you going to use the car for ?

    Nice...that should be damn bitchen!!!! I want the sbc but this will kill a few birds with one stone...and I dont mind.

    It is going to be a Street Strip car. About 70% Street 30% strip. I havent checked to see if it was a C clip rear end or not...I was just gonna run it till she went and have Currie build me up a nice 9 inch. I will also be running some M/T Street Radials

    The edelbrock bars seem to work alot better than the lakewood stuff.
    Cheap 50/50 shocks and a anti roll bar and your gona have no problems. Anti roll bar bit of a pain to put in one of those but work absolutly awesome. No more air bags which are just a bandaid anyways.

    Got a converter you would probably really like.

    Buy the motor mounts made by all star... much stonger than the pos moroso bent and splitting in half ones.

    Bad idea man. When a c'clip rear end fails, the axle pulls out and bad things happen with the rear wheel. A Curry or Chassis works RE is the best idea, but if your out of $$$ at least upgrade the axles in the 12 bolt.
    Good luck

    Sure there is, Nascar runs small blocks that are pushing 800 hp. Obviously you can get much more from a 502 but how much do you really need. You should be able to get what you want out of a small block.

    What Nascar motors lack in displacement they more than make up for in $$$. Cup motors are insanely expensive.
    We ran small blocks when we raced NHRA and it's pretty easy to build a 650+ HP SBC. However, the same $$ will easily get you 850+ in a BBC. In a heavy street car like a Chevelle, a BBC is the only way to go. Been there, done that.
