306 project

Sence you all know what happened to my other setup. I'm thinking of going with a stock 5.0 block and boring it 0.30 over. Has any one had a 306. I want to go with stock crank and rods. Summit racing has a kit with 30 over pistons and rings and the gasket kit is included with it. While it's getting bore I'm going to have the crank polished. I'm hoping for high 12 secs next year at NMRA. With. 306 gt-40 heads new intake don't know which one yet. And 24lb injectors and a bigger maf sensor. Any other suggestions.

Boring to a 306 gives you like 5 hp.

But it is nice to start on a fresh block. Look into a stoker kit 331 or 347

Well I'm just looking for something a little better and something to build I already have a setup when I get the money. I just want to run and it to stay together the whole time. I know I won't get much horses out of it. Something I can sell for good cash when I'm done with it.

Well a good HCI, 373s(manual of course) put some long tubes on it. You can make around 320 rwhp. Depends on why set up you go with. The Foxes are so light already huge advantage man. There awesome cars. You will get your goal forsure, just depends how much money you wanna spend really?
