Hey everyone, I have a 55 2nd GMC with a stock Pontiac 316 in her that is pretty tired, no longer has acceptable compression and burns oil possibly more than fuel. So I am going to pull it and give it a good rebuild, but while I am at it, I want to do some upgrades to give it a little more go. From what I understand the 316 is essentially the same block within reason as the 347, 370, and 389 (59-60 Only)but really all that is different is the stroke / bore. Again this is from some pretty simple research and may not really be true. So what I am wondering is, can I take some mild or basic alluminum heads from a 389 and bolt them on with minimum modification? I would like to essentially bore the motor out a little bit, clean it all up. Throw in a 347 or a 389 crank, new rods and pistons, A mild cam, Alluminum heads, Performer RPM intake, 4 Barrel Carb, headers and call it a day. (along with all the normal maintance things, like timing chain, water pump, oil pump etc.) Would this work or am I completely confused.
