Hello All,
I am now ready to start engine mods on my 1984 ELKY. She is bone stock under the hood. Solid running 305 with stock tranny and although not a California car I had to add a cat to get it to pass smog. Here is my question.... I can get a remanufactured and warrantied basic 350 on Ebay for $1100.00 plus shipping. I have posted the link here. What kind of power would this motor put out and would everything on the 305 bolt up to this motor
Or, should I look at high perf heads and a mild cam on the 305 I have? http://ebay.com/itm/120882491446?_trksid=p3984.m1438.126

What would be the most economical way to get a little more power and torque? I don't need anything crazy.
RTT:smileyb:

Why would you get a remanufactured (rebuilt)350 for $1100,when you can get a brand new GM 350 for $ 1499 with warranty,all new metal block,crank,rods,pistons,heads everything new.On some sites you can get free shipping.Try GM Performance,Jeg's etc.I've seen the 350 -290 hp, 4 bolt main,you need to shop around on the internet.Good Luck.
