Question low budget engine rebuild ?????????

Going to do a budget rebuild the target is 11.99's at least once.

The block that I am going to use is an 84-85 block, I already have it collecting dust in the garage plus it would reduce my down time.
BTW How do these blocks (84-85) hold up?
Back to my rebuild
1-30 over because it needs it -I have a set of used 30 over pistons that I picked up from Cottonís about A year or two ago.
2-Which main bearings should I use (can you please post part #ís)?
3-Which piston rings should I use?
4Should I go with a roller cam? I want it reliable
Or
5-Would a reg. cam work and last?
The heads will be done after I am done with the Short block so I am not even thinking about them now.


Thanks for the help guys.
David

Should hold up fine

Turbo rings, we should have them in stock...

Definitely roller cam..... in stock...

The heads will be done after I am done with the Short block so I am not even thinking about them now.

Hope that helps, fact is we should have everything you need in stock, if you have a Napa stock nearby, you should be able to just order your rings and bearings there, just make sure you order for a vin 7 86-87 turbo GN.

Happy Holidays,

Turbo Buick and Budget should never be used in the same sentence

Good Luck
