Interested in how boring out the valves will work out.

You don't need a new crank, I'm sure yours is fine and any machine shop would agree. You don't need the fuel rail either. So there's ~$600 you don't need to spend. Stick with the oem manifold until you start making big #'s and it actually proves to be a restriction of air flow, in which case, for 450whp, porting the stocker would do just fine.

I'm hoping boring the valves will pay off.

Why do you say no to the fuel rail? I was under the impression that the stock one was pretty restrictive.

And I'm going to school for automotive engineering next school year so I thought I might as well make the manifold and plenum as a project for it.

There's plenty of guys making big power on stock fuel rails. The rest is just bling. Kseries guys need it b/c of how the fuel system is designed.

Sounds good. And I agree with blk, save the money rather then spending it on a new crank. I heard stock fuel lines and rail should hold up to about 600whp.

So buy a used crank and have it resurfaced? Because I'm buying a low mile stripped block with nothing but the girdle.

I can get a new crank for 150 through a connect.
