Re: Chevy 350 2 Bolt Main Build Up. Parts?
I wouldn't build a 383 out of a 2-bolt block, I've seen enough problems with 2-bolts on hard run 350's. Have splayed main caps installed and you'll be golden.
Edelbrock's cams are out-dated, pick a VooDoo
No reason or need for a high volume or high pressure oil pump, the factory system is fine with stock pressure and volume.
As for Dart's being superior to the competition, I'm sure there are plenty who'll beg to differ. They make a very good cast iron head, but there are plenty of good flowing heads on the market now. I assume you're looking at their Platinums? You might also want to check out GM's Bowtie Vortecs, good looking heads.
Since you don't have all your parts yet, you might want to consider using a 90's model 4-bolt block, the inexpensive OEM hydraulic roller lifters will get you more hp with a more streetable cam than you could get from a flat tappet.
