You can't go wrong with the trick flow set up. Heads and cam. The gt40 intake really shows well also and performs.

I don't know the typhoon. If you like the look of it then keep it. Trick flow cam and heads are recommended for sure though.

the typhoon is the same as the edlebrock efi intake...they're interchangable top and bottoms

i think a trickflow intake would be better for a 347 with decent heads. but you can still make good power with the typhoon, i used to own one. as far as your heads and cam you could check out jeg's or even ebay... i buy lotsa go fast stuff off of ebay! also, as far throttle body, i would suggest 70ml if your goin with the 347 or boost regardless of intake choice.

I would recommend AFR 185 heads if you can afford them. If not, the Trick Flow will suffice.

As far as the intake, the Typhoon will work as long as it is a Performer RPM rip off and not just the base Performer.

Edelbrock actually has 3 EFI 5.0 intakes:

Performer
Performer RPM
Performer RPM II

After some more reading, apparently all the Typhoon intakes are rip-offs of the original Performer RPM.

a damn good rip-off too might i add...100%interchangable with the original... and they come in polished too. let's not forget, waaay cheaper than the edelbrock version as well. i loved my typhoon. 5.0 magazine tested it, it's better than motorsport stuff through most of the rpm range.

I have AFR 185s with a port n polish along with polished trickflow intakes and a custom made cam buy trickflow as well. My 347 made 405 rwhp NA. Very good set up I recommend 100 percent

Which Trick Flow heads are being referred to here? They sell several models, each with an option for cnc or not. I will personally vouch for the twisted wedge heads, I think they are a great design. Trick flow cnc heads flow the best of any head with comparable cc runners. AFR is a close runner up, can't go wrong with either brand.

Suspension is going to depend on what you're going to use the car for. Do you want it to corner well or come out of the hole well? Do you care about ride comfort? How much money do you want to spend on it?

Re: New member and needs help

comfort and good hole shot are'nt really combinable for the same sentence in my experience.

sum upper and lower trailing/control arms and perhaps sum spherical axel bushings would prolly help u out a bit (ok, significantly). however, your trading flexible parts for non flexible parts which will drasticly stiffen the rear suspension... also, u could frame tie the car (sub frame connecters). this will stiffen the chassis and allow the suspension to work better.. key word there is stiffen. all these mods make the car alot stiffer and definatley take away from comfort or softness of the ride.

you could buy all those pieces for around 500 or less.

and another trick that works is using a torque brace. jeg's sells them for 60-70 bucks, but i bought mine from lowe's for 8 bucks.

Stick with the typhoon, that's the intake I'm gonna be running with the Edelbrock performer RPM heads and TFS stage 1 cam, I'm still in the build process and if you have this months 5.0 Magazine there's a 91 lx fox body, which is running a typhoon intake with a T70 turbo !
