    How much money do you have to pay for all of this? Really.

    What are your current mods?

    I'm really not trying to be a dick, but let me put this frankly...

    Lots of people come onto a board and say "Hey, I'm going to build a motor that makes a gazillion horsepower" but they don't have the time, money, or know-how to do so. This may or may not apply to you. However, some folks may not want to spend the time delineating a combination for what ulimately amounts to a pipe dream.

    That may not be the case with you. I'm just providing an observation based on past experiences.

    Paul.

    if you do build an engine based off the new boss 302, which isn't a hard thing to convince people of, the only real suggestion i'd give is the bottom end combo.

    the new boss block can be bored out to 4.125" safely, and that when you get a boss engine it is an unfinished block that needs to be bored out anyways, so i say go with a 4.125" bore and a 3.2" stroke.

    347ci with a better rod ratio than a 4.03" bore and 3.4" stroke 347ci.

    that will make everything else about the engine so much better.
