    it has this thus far

    msd ignition(box, dist, coil)
    670cfm carb
    fuel pump with reg
    (that pretty much sums it up)

    next=exhaust system + cam

    after that im at the point where im thinking heads + small nitrous shot with stock internals

    or would it be a better idea to do stroker build up then do the heads(if i redid internals it would be forged stroker build up, im thinking 331)

    the reason im iffy on doing the heads before an internal rebuild is whether or not it would be the optimal combo or is this something i should rly worry about? if not i guess that means i can go with the heads and then be free to do the stroker build up down the road

    im a little noobish here on some things so be easy :hs:

    the point is im trying to avoid having to swap shit down the road and end up wasting money

    what would you do?

    A)heads and nitrous
    b)heads and nitrous and do stroker down the road ontop of the previous stuff
    c)wait, do stroker build up then do heads-nitrous

  3. bottom end first. otherwise you could break it and then have to wait anyway.

    stroker for sure. not a fan of nitrous. plus your rod bolts needed to be upgraded yesterday.

    i am in the midst of work, havent been driving this car and havent had the insides open, as i go along all the bolts etc are getting upgraded to ARP

    ive been reading a lot about nitrous, it seems its plausible i just need to be conservative with it and take all neccasary precatuons :dunno:
