stock crank (checked in machine shop)
stock 360 heads (machined to 2.02/x head stats)(or should i just leave them stock?)
keith black pistons .030 over flat
mopar performance cam purple Duration 268/272, Lift .450/.455 hydraulic flat tappit with lifters 1,500-5,800 range
edelbrock performer intake

My only reservation is the KB pistons, I am not a big fan. Welcome to the Forum man, Sealed Power is a good slug. What casting # are the 360's ?

I dont think you will come anywhere close to the hp you want with that combo, X2 on the pistons. Pretty mild build. 100hp shot of nitrous would do it. What car for this combo? trans?

Diamond pistons. Forged and all ready for spray! And to get the HP you want you'll need WAY more cam and gobs of head work.

well, you,d be surprised of the power of a near stock 360. I wouldn't think about the HP numbers right away. Just build a strong bottom end, do a decent v alve job on the heads and be careful with the assembly. Later down the road you can put on some better heads, cam etc. You'll be fine with the combo you have on paper but if you want 450-500 hp, more will be required. save up for it and do it later.

What car will this be going in?

I would go with a Comp Cams 262 H high energy cam. Would work extremely well in a 360. Would work good with your intake.

Comp cams can recommend the best springs to go with the cam. But definitly go with the recommendations of the cam manufacturer. Id put the 2.02 intake valves in it and leave the stock exhaust valves. [that way you do not disturb the hardened exhaust valve seats, the intake seats were not hardened just the exhaust seats] I like the one piece stainless intake valves by Ferria {spelling?}.

Well you could go with the 268/280 it has 477 lift on the intake and 480 on the exhaust Part num. CCA-CL20-223-3 from summit racing. Its a cam and lifter package and think it retails for about $186 probably good for 5800-6000 rpm's if set up with right intake/carb.

The other one that I mentioned was the 262/270 with 462 lift on the intake and 470 on the exhaust . Alittle bit milder but would be a torque producer. Probably could ring it out to 5600-5800 R's.
It is part num. CCA-CL20-222-3. Has the same price and is also a cam and lifter package . Both are ground on 110 deg. centerlines I believe.

I think both of these would work good for a 360 with the stock crank.

a 750 vacuum secondary holley is not too big for a 360 and you can make a 750 double pumper work too but it will be "temperimental" {kinda touchy} on the street.
Intakes;1. eldebr. rpm air gap/2. Weiand Stealth air strike/ or 3. crosswind intake made by professional products-RPM Machine

ALSO Summit racing has thier own "air gap type" manifold that looks to be very much the same as the Eldebrock RPM air gap for a little bit cheaper but I personally haven't heard much about it in terms of comparison.

I'm a b body fan too, but if I were you, I'd cram that motor into an A body. Not like I should talk, my Belvedere sports a 318.

Im buildling a 360 up.. not a magnum..want it streetable. I want to get about 350 HP if I can, and of course, Im on a budget,,, short one...Im mostly into the 50s stuff so this is kind of out of my comfort zone... Im thinking some 9.5 comp. pistons, maybe KB, Im open to manifold and carb , need new cam advice for sure, Ill use the stock crank and rods, heads Im open to as long as it isnt spendy, ill use elec ign of course, probably some type of headers. roller chain and gears, hope I can get some good advice out there from you guys... maybe Im asking for too much.. but sure would appreciate some advice.. please email me privatly.. and again,, thanks in advance
