Heads cam intake 166,000miles

Is it a bad idea to throw some tri state heads, e303 cam, Cobra intake, 75mm TB on my car with 166,000 miles? Car runs strong.

You can if you want, but I would save up and maybe get a lightly used 306 or etc... And make a little more power. I got a full gt40 crate block with about 8000 miles with an f cam for 550

Do a leakdown check, if it passes, go nuts. I'd do GT40s, the stock cam, GT40 intake and a supercharger though.

I was going to go supercharged but this deal I got for 700$ for all that stuff I listed so I didn't know if going SC would be worth it yet. Yes I will do a leak down test.

If the bottom end is strong go for it.

That's what I'm woundering. Should I just rebuild since I have the motor apart..or would it be ok to just put ARP bolts in the bottom end?

Don't touch the bottom end if it checks good compression wise. The rotating assembly is not the weak point in the pushrod motors, the main webbing of the block itself is. This is why I laugh (and point) at ppl who do forged strokers in stock blocks. Its no stronger than a junkyard pullout.
