The turbo would be cool, but the v8 swap would be more economical

Could you buy the piping for a pushrod 5.0 and modify the piping to get it to work?
It'd be easier than starting from scratch

Intake valves are good, except for one.
Exhaust valves are all pitted.

Does anyone think it'd be a good idea to pick up a c6 cheap and attempt to rebuild it? As a learning experience? Or should I avoid doing transmission work? (This is for after I'm done with this motor, probably in a year or two. Because other projects...)

I'm glad to know I did it right...
As you can see the drill slipped a bit on some parts.
Do I have to get the heads milled?

Will that mess anything else up?
Like will I need a slightly smaller pushrod or something like that? Or will the stock accessories work?

Glad to hear that!!!
What components in the valvetrain should I replace?
I've got 2 bad valve seals, but I plan on replacing all of them, because they seem weak. (And they're plastic??)
The pushrods are all straight. How would I test rocket arms??

You can reuse everything that isn't damaged except for the seals.

Well so far.. Piston #3, valve seals, and exhaust valves are all damaged.
The pistons,valve seals, exhaust valves, camshaft, timing gear, and timing chain zillion be replaced.
Along with the other usually replaced components.

Those old school tranny's are really easy to work on, I rebuilt my first C4 at 16 and didn't have any troubles with it. Just gotta pay extra attention to the thrust washers

In all honesty, I'm gonna buy a book on it and read it before hand.
Or go online and learn very thing I possibly can before buying it.
That's what I did with the 460,
And I asked a ton of questions
