Well as alot of you know from my crankshaft endplay thread we are having to rebuild the engine from my sons 1971 Plymouth valiant 2dr. It's got the original 318 in it, so he opted to get it rebuilt. The crankshaft was trashed from the thrust bearing failure, he pulled a good turnable crank from his '68 fury engine that was totaled. Looks like it is going to be bored .30 going to order the forged scat rods, forged pistons, the edelbrock upper end kit with the aluminum heads and intake with the cam and lifters they sell as part of the kit. I'll get the specs on it. He's going to have the machine shop do the short block rotating assembly build out for it. He's hoping to see 450 hp. The car already has dual 2.5 exhaust with x pipe, new edelbrock 650cfm carb. Though I am working on him to go efi, as he's already taking the gas tank out to replace it with a new one, good time to plumb it for the efi. Picked up a stage 2 firm feel steering box, as the guys are basically local to us. 3.55 gearset in an 8.75 rearend.
