I am building a 69 Z 28 clone. I am looking to do it on a budget if possible. I would like the car to apprear correct for the most part. I am open to suggestions of all types. Motor will be dressed stock 302 for the most part. No overly concerned with the internals. I would also like to build something that will give the project as much value as possible. I am not looking for a money pitt project. Looking to spend wisely, get as much performance as possible for a weekend driver. will have a Muncie M20 Trans, 342 373 or 410 rear gear, Chambered exhaust.
Which is the better motor combo for my project. I am looking at a few different motor options. I want to make sure I buy the right set up for maximum value and quality.
This L-82 is an original bore Corvette motor. Currently a short block. Needs to have cam and heads installed. Heads are 492 Angle plug or 186. This motor would be oil pan to intake. This package would cost $2500.00.
The other option is this 1970 LT1 same angle plug 492 heads or 186 heads. Oil Pan to intake, except blanced & blueprinted. $4000.00.
Which one is the better deal and better way to go for this project?
