H-e-l-l yes it's worth it.
Instant 49 cube increase for one thing, stronger block for another.......
P.S. The only dumb questions are the ones you never ask.
You will need:
Oil pan, pickup tube and dipstick.
Lower intake for a 351W to match your upper.
Headers for a 351W. (The 351W is one inch wider, which is why the lower intake, pan and headers don't fit.)
Harmonic balancer. (
The 351W requires a 28-inch/ounce unbalance.)
........there's an easier way......
Here's a link to a 351W Swap article.
