    I like the eagle and CHP kits. For street i would go 331 just because its less stress on the parts, but if u do go 347, only buy the CHP. CHP does not have the oil ring interesect with the rist pin so u wont be burning oil in 10,000 miles or so.

    also how much will i be looking at for having the block bored??? just a ballpark figure would be appreciated!

    I used an eagle kit in my 306. If your gonna be just driving it on the street and no power adders cast is fine. but if you wanna spray or run boost FORGED is the only way to go. my all forged kit came balanced and I got it for 900 bucks which is a steal. as for heads its pretty much you can go an aftermarket aluminum head and most of them are pretty good. Trick flow to me is the best but because I have used alot of their parts on stuff. I'd bored it .030 over any more than that is pushing it.
