Welcome Scoot; I missed where you're from? We (GBF), OK me always likes to see another Malibu. Bias I think? Lots of brains to pick here. My good buddy & I just built a 331, a .030" over 327 & we put in a 1950 Chevy. With that short 3" stroke it grabs R's real sweet. And the little loss of torque over a 350-355" is not a bad thing when the car only weights around 3100 Lbs. Keep postin' pictures, we like them, Ole' Bob.

Good Morning Scoot & all; So we're about 75 miles apart as I'm 45 miles South of Madison. So the questions we have is do I have any parts that you need & will I sell them?? I always invite my fellow Car Nuts to stop by for a beer (with or without roots) & jaw bone.
And MichMalibuMan thank you for the kind words on the 50 Chevy. This winter it will get an interior & we hope to take it to "Back to the 50's next summer. Ole' Bob.
