Q: I am rebuilding a 350 Chevy V8 for my daily driven 1991 S-10 pickup. I want to purchase moly rings for the stock flat top pistons, Clevite 77 rod and main bearings, a high-volume oil pump, COMP Cams Xtreme 4×4 cam and lifter kit (CCA-12-235-2), matching valve springs, COMP Cams pushrods, Milodon timing chain set, GM Performance Parts Vortec cylinder heads, roller rocker arms, an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold, and a Demon Carburetion Street Demon 625 cfm carb.

The redline of this engine will be 5,000 rpm. Before I order, can you tell me if the parts I’ve chosen will work together?

The engine will be bolted to a Turbo 350 transmission with a TCI overhaul kit and a Summit 12” torque converter. I’m reusing the stock 7-5/8 rear axle with new Richmond 3.23 gears, an Eaton Posi Performance differential, and a Moser C-clip eliminator kit with new axles.

A: The parts you’ve selected will work very well together.

The only suggestion I have is to use Edelbrock’s Performer intake (EDL-2116) instead of the Performer RPM. The power range of the Performer intake will work better with the camshaft you’ve chosen.

    I definitely recommend adding a set of Summit Racing Aluminum heads or (Trickflow Aluminum heads) if you can afford the deference in price.. That is what I ran in (mine) and it was Awesome brother….
