Hey guys, my younger brother has a 67 galaxie that he wants to put a 351C in. The block is at the machine shop currently and the next step is selecting pistons and heads, he has what he says is factory 4v heads for it currently.
His guidelines for the build are as follows
to be streetable
500hp
$5000 budget.

Any advice is welcome, he wants his car to be a cruiser/hotrod, maybe a street bruiser.
Open to information on cam, roller vs flat tappet, and what compression ratio is ideal, any and all information is helpful. Thanks.

That's a decent budget but keep it simple and avoid the high dollar race heads etc. Find a good cam designer for a custom roller cam for it, and get their input on the compression ratio and intake. For that kind of power, a single plane intake is a must.

Spend plenty(lots) of time finding the right intake, cam and pistons. The 4V heads can support 500hp, but they do need a little work, and many say the valves have to be replaced for anything but a low rpm engine.

My brother said his engine builder is trying to find eagle rods,  I beam I believe. This is something his machinist would know I'm sure but are there alternatives? He's using the stock crank and looking for 10 to 1 compression.

I think your options are limited on a stock length Cleveland rod. I think Eagle and RPM make H beams.

You might need some Titanium rods and a flow bench!  LMAO on floor

Thanks Juiced. I did some reading last night and found a wildcobrar's motor list from this thread. Sounds like what he wants.
