If I was going to start a project like this so you will still have a car to drive.I would go to a junk yard and get a"seasoned" engine.Then tear it apart,have the bare block alignment bored,and start from there.Use forged internals,rods and crank.I don't know about pistons.Forged pistons are made smaller than cast to allow for their greater rate of expansion.Some say forged pistons are noisy upon start-up.Talk to some head porting companies,see about porting and cams that would compliment a S/C.They can also recommend intakes and exhaust combinations.The main thing is don't try to save money and buy cheap components.They will be the parts that break and cause all the grief.

^^^^^^ perfect way to do it, never cut corners while building an engine. you might even think of running a 4v motor but it is more involved. you really need to decide were you want to go with this project. good luck

What he said. I realize there are some do it yourselfers and thats cool, but the reality of it is, once you buy all the components, get a good core(block) have all the machine work done(clean,checked, bored,etc etc) and assembled..your going to save a lot of money going with the pre assembled. I know VT stands by there products and will be honest with you about what there shortblocks will handle powerwise. Jim and Scott are both great guys. Just as a for example...I just had my 350Chevy rebuilt(cheapest motor in the world),,,anyway the machine work alone was almost $1000. So imagine having some specialty stuff done with parts on top of that and internally balanced. Your into some pretty good coin.
