Summit engine rebuild kit any good?
I am trying to do a budget rebuild ona 5.0 I have. I am looking at the Summit engine rebuild kit for a 306 with the forged Speed Pro pistong. I am wanting to use this with a set of AFR 165 or TW heads. Will that piston work with that? I will be using something in the area of a Trick Flow stage 1 cam. Looks like a pretty decent kit, but would I be better pieceing something together?
I am shooting for 310 rwhp NA, with a 150-175 shot.
I was also told that it is usually cheaper to get new rods versus having the maching shop rebuild/resize my factory rods. Is that correct?
How much should I be expecting to spend on having this motor assembled with all the services to suit my needs by the machine shop? Trying to weigh my options between that and just buying a ready built short block.
