Hi, I am getting ready to start building a new motor for my 72 Nova. I am looking for sugestions for parts selection. I have an existing .030 over standard deck 454 2 bolt main 1974 block. I want to make around 700hp. I want to run pump gas. (I may throw a 150 to 200 shot of NOS at it at some point so keep that in mind). I am planing on either a hydraulic roller or solid roller but I would like to go hydraulic if at all possible so I don't have to mess with lash and I want it to be easy on the valve train. I am thinking stroker kit, 496 and a decent set of aluminum heads. I do have a Victor Jr for oval port heads and a good set of gm 781 oval port heads that I had 2.19 1.88 valves installed and some porting and polishing. I would rather lighten the car up and sell the 781's (let me know if you might be interested in the heads by PM and I can send you details on the heads. They are assmbled, manley swirl cut valves, 3 angle valve job, all comp cams hardware and springs ect.). I hope to get some good ideas, let me know what you think.
