    okay so i need some help guys. i was thinking of getting my stock block bored out .030 how reliable would this be now take in note that it would be kind of a daily driver and it would see some drag time not a lot but some also im not trying to build a a all out drag car yet ;) . im just trying to get something like 300 to the wheels anything more would be great that now for second question is what would the block bored out with good h/c/i do to the wheels would that at least hit 300

    You can pull 300rwhp from the stock block w/o boring. Get a good set of Heads, cam, intake, full exhaust and run a 75 shot Squeeze and you be over the 300 mark. For safety, run a bottom end main bolt support.

    you can be close to 300 by just doing the Pi head swap.

    Boring it .030 and having the rest of the machinework checked (align hone mains, deck, etc...) definitely won't hurt anything on a daily driver. Don't forget you'll need new pistons, your rods will need to be resized, and the crank could probably use polishing.

    As for a 300+ rwhp, I would say:

    AFR 185s
    Systemax II, 70 or 75mm TB
    Bigger comp cam or just call Ed Curtis and have him cut you one
    Longtubes
    Full exhaust
    30 or 36 lb injectors, MAF
    Pro Magnum Rockers
    Good new lifters, pushrods
    etc. etc...

    That will easily put you well above 300 rwhp with the right cam.

    Dude, don't forget he's talking about a stock factory 5.0 block. They are weak around the cyl's and boring is not really a receipe for strength.

    Dude, the block will break when the main webbing, lifter valley, and front side let go. NOT because the cylinder walls are too thin.

    In that case, just buy a HCI kit from Edelbrock/TFS/whatever that has a CARB sticker and be done with it.

    Paul.

    I swear there are a bunch of people on this board who just make "tech" up as they go along.
