    MONTE CARLO Possible 350 swap

    I am currently looking around for a small block 350 to switch out my current 305 with. My dad and I within the past 2 years put in a new carburetor, intake, headers and made the exhaust true dual instead of the factory Y pipe. How much of that would be compatible with a 350? It's also a T-top...

    BUICK 454/th400 swap

    I have a very clean 81 lesabre (it’s basically just a big g body 😁) that currently hosts a 350 that smokes like a diesel and a 700r4 that has a lack of 3rd and 4th gear. This winter I’m hoping to swap in a 454/th400 getting the motor and trans mounted is not my concerns, the wireing aspect...

    New member: Monte Carlo

    Hi all, my name is Jaden and I am a proud owner of my 1982 Monte Carlo. My dad bought this car up in Georgia for himself because my first car was actually a 69' VW Beetle. We sold the beetle cause of the rust issues and the Monte became my new ride. We bought it from the original owner who was a...

    350 build

    I posted a similar thread a few months ago about a 454 build but I may have found another project to put that in, but either way, I was looking for some suggestions on how to get decent power out of my 350. Right now it's just a standard 350 with cast iron heads, 650 edelbrock carb, no bore, and...

    HELP 1/2 inch Fuel line help

    I had an engine built for me by a friend who has PLENTY of experience racing. He recommended that I change over my main fuel line to 1/2 inch. I found some aluminum fuel line that would work great, but I don’t know if I have to switch over my sending unit too. My sending unit is only 3/8. Why do...

    350 vortec swap in my monte carlo aerocoupe

    Hi everyone, I picked up my 87 aerocoupe from a friends back yard a few months ago, and put new battery belts etc on it. Long story short the engine is seized and I'm looking for a 350 4 bolt for it. I found a 350 vortec block, and was wondering if there was any difference between the regular...

    Build Your Own Ram Jet 350

    I was just reading about a fellow that had built many 87-02 Vortec-based 350s. He likes the RJ350 cam , GM #14097395. Here is where that cam is used. I have collected the parts to build my own Ram Jet, and I spent under $3000. I think the top end, wire harness, and ECU are still for sale...

    Recipe for a DIY ZZ1-ZZ4 350 (up to 355 HP)

    Here is another parts list to build up your own GM crate engine for less that crate prices. I know the market is moving towards the LS as the new 350, but there are plenty of us out there who are more than happy with an old-school 350 under the hood. And if you are on a budget, notice how the...
