I guess it would depend on (1) what you have as far as a 2nd gen, 3rd gen, etc. and (2) what kind of deals you can put your hands on. Me personally, for example, if I had a 3rd Gen tpi car I would build a 350 into a 383.
It truly comes down to what you have to start with as to how much extras/other parts will cost to make things work for you. Good luck with your upcoming project.

My 305 is starting to give out. What would be a better bang for the buck a tpi 350 or LS motor?

Restoration Related Discussion / Re: T-Top Leaks

Did you replace the outer rail seals at the same time, and all the seals or did you just do the inner tops? How long did you let the seal sit with the tops in? They need to be in for at least 48 hours, with the car being undisturbed for that time.
Sounds like maybe the alignment got disturbed. The other possibility is that your window glass needs adjusting. Over time, these can shift with the body of the car and the torque. For example, look at the hatch alignment. Even gently driven cars can have this issue.

I need advice! I have replaced the t-top seals on my Ď91 Trans Am. The tops are not leaking. Water is coming in behind the door glass about 1/4 of the way down the pillar. Itís driving me nuts! Just donít want my baby messed up! Thanks in advance!

I had a Ď79 original 403 car that had a sbc put in it. When I got it the shaker wasnít on and had similar problem. I drilled out the rivets holding the fiberglass portion to the base or something like.

That moved it to fit and riveted it back. Seemed way too simple but was years ago.

Here are pictures of the issue I am having. As you can see the air cleaner is a bit pitched to the lower left of the shaker hole. This prevents the shaker from lining up perfectly. The car HAD a 6cyl with auto trans. It now has a Pontiac 400 with a T10 4 speed. Any suggestions on getting the shaker aligned? Thanks!
