TBI 350........beef it or swap it

Hola amigos


I'm considering beefing the TBI 350 in my '91 Burb or swapping it for a '91 TBI 454. Of course just the mention of the word big block makes every wheeler drool. But, I'm wondering if anyone has built the TBI 350's in these trucks with good results. I read an article in an older Offroad mag with a TBI 383 that put out about 360HP and 410ft-lbs at under 3K rpm. Does anyone know or have experience with these engines producing more than that with a modified factory computer? I'm thinking Supercharger,Turbo, and /or Nitrous ( small dose , heh) with a solid 4-bolt main bottom end,steel crank,forged rods,forged pistons and a decent computer-friendly cam with a good flowing set of aluminum heads can make around 400HP and ft-lbs at wheeler-friendly rpms.

Any input?

any 350 haters?

this truck will be running 36-38" tires in the buildups first phase and if the reliability and simplicity of the TBI can be retained for a while until more extreme measures are reached for.....then I'm up for it

Go BB and never look back. With just a cam, intake and good exhaust you can make pretty good power and lots of torque. If you want even more power you can do some head work and swap pistons to bump up the compression.
