    Well last night I had a brain storm and remembered I have 500 dollars in rods and 700 in custom pistons from my old motor . so I am building the motor with that just waiting on taxes to move foward . slowly but surely [​IMG]

    so it will be a long rod 306 like my old motor

    @84Ttop I don't know how much you know about long rod motors of if you can ask for me , am I gonna have detonation issues with the blower because of the piston being slower at tdc ? I am reading mixed reviews , stangnet sticky says yes search on other forums says the opposite that it won't have an issue .

    Me to lol , max maybe 62 if I am really beating it up but other wise it won't be shifted too high , Hyd roller ,heads I am unsure of waiting for my w2s so I can see what I may be getting back before I do anything else

    You'll be fine with the longer rod. I haven't seen any issues with the long rod at all. We just finished dynoing a long rod 306 w/ TFS heads that made 630 rwhp with the Si trim and really conservative timing.
