if you can find a cast Bowtie intake they work real good for what you need.

IF YOU WANT TO GET SERIOUS go and Buy yourself a NEW 350ci GM Circle track Limited Late Model Engine for $4,700.

Get a Good Local Dirt Chassis set up man with experience and learn how to drive that thang and you will have more than enough engine to take care of them

since its your 1st year and you are gonna be realistic and just get valuable seat time ...i would seriously think about the base line GM crate engine for $1500.00..with their cam its rated 260hp and 350ft lbs of TQ at 3500 rpm...you could always put another cam shaft to find a little more Bottom end...work the bowls on the heads,angle mill them for a little more Compression, little intake work...and you could have a decent NEW engine for under $2500. by the time you add your carb, intake,HEI dist...you may end up with an engine making 400ft lbs of Tq...

By the time you go trying to Piece an engine together you gonna have more then $2500 in it anyway..don't believe me...go try it


thats the route i would consider if it were me anyhow..

Thank you bjuice. Thats was the information that I was looking for. you re right, all I want for the first year is get all the seat time in that I can but still run with the best of them. But my goal is to start every race and finish every race. Again, thanks for the info. Have a great weekend.

I run an enduro car back about 10 years on asphalt and dirt, my motor had 010 block .030 over keith black dished pistons, arp main studs,gm steel crank,stock rods w/arp bolts,186 casting gm heads,good gm cast iron intake forgot the number though,z71 intake manifolds,and a modified q-jet. This motor ran like a raped ape 5,900 to 6,200 rpm,s for 2 seasons that equates to around 2,400 laps between 1/4 mile track up to a 1/2 mile track, and was trouble free. Hope this helps.
