My 3.4 build up, goal of 250hp for less than $3000 (the price of a complete V8 kit). Realistically  I expect 225 hp or higher. If I had held out for the later model FWD block with a roller cam I think I'd have had a chance of hitting 250hp, but the price was right on the core so... If you decide to use any of these PN know that its not all together yet & there might be some more surprises like the piston being called flat top w/ valve relief & it comes in DOME w/ valve relief, the numbers still work, but now requires a clay mock-up to check clearences.  Also note acording to the books I have the right PN for the Total Seal rings, but in reality I had to use the total seal 2nd ring & order custom compression & oil rings.Thats when it's nice to be woorking with a good machine shop like Fast .

Keep your eye out, page will be updated with links as the work progresses.
