Engine: The small-block for this swap is a GM Performance Parts 300hp 350 crate engine, PN 12355345; it's available from any GM Performance Parts dealer, usually for less than $2,000. It comes as a long-block with the tin installed, and once you add the appropriate balancer, flywheel, intake, carb, and ignition (all available through the GM Performance Parts catalog), it makes 300 hp at 5,000 rpm and 369 lb-ft at 3,500 rpm. We've found this engine capable of reasonable low-rpm rock-chugging as well as top-end power for sand blasting.
