depends you can get one for a few hundred that you would need to rebuild or you can go get a 350 crate motor that is already dont but that will cost a couple k.


My engine when it went I have now a total about 5k in to the engine. My husband spent about 2500 on a crate motor 290 Hp 350.

I disagree. I have seen some bored 327's that haul some insane ass. Plus, alot of the aftermarket for the 350 applies to the 305 since they share many esential similarities.

I thought a 327 was a de-stroked 350.

I'd get the ZZ4 350. Very friendly to mods and much cheaper. 350 stock, and it can make 450hp easily.
