    cam and lifters

    Don I would like to have it but you know. My cam is installed , chain and cover on and the intake and valves adjusted. I'm really sorry . You've been a lot of help to me and others. What is the lift so others will know?

    Did you try a 340hp small port 409 intake?

    better oem intake ?

    Engine is assembled , not installed, the changes I could make now would be intake and carb. I'm leaning toward just the carb as I think I could tune it easier with the kit. I'm thinking the big 409 4gc if it needed to be tuned for the smaller displacement might be a challenge. I could wait and...

    better oem intake ?

    better oem intake ?

    The ultra rare 776 intake is on eBay now for $825 . It's been a while since I've seen the 540 for sale. Folks are proud of them both for sure. I'm just being hard headed. I know I should get the avs2 and the eddy intake. I've got a solid built 348 short block stock stroke with ross pistons ...

    better oem intake ?

    Question: Of these 3 intakes which is considered the best stock intake for a 348 with small port heads with the matching oem carb for the intake? The aluminum 3780540, the aluminum 3797776 360 hp 409 or the cast iron 340 hp 409 3830831 . Visually the 340 hp and the 360 hp manifolds look similar...

    jahns pistons

    FYI, there is a set of Jahns pistons and pins on eBay 12.1 .125 over for a 348. I didn't know it was possible to bore one out that far.

    Phenolic spacers

    Speaking of spacers is a 1/4 inch enough to insulate the carb? If not is it acceptable to stack two 1/4 spacers with necessary gaskets? 1/2 not available.
