? on performance parts for an 84 Cutlass

what kind of rods and cam should a guy put in an 84 cutlass hoping to reach around the 500hp range?

I don't think there is enough nitrous in the world to make 500hp in a 84 cutlass w/cam and rods. I'll assume you have the 307.

Very odd.

EVEN if you get 1.5hp per CI of motor (haha), you are still under 500hp. It will take a lot of money.

Cheaper way out?

383 chevy stroker and a th350 trans.

Even the trans is a BOP bolt pattern, won't work with a chevy.

Replace the 307 with a 350sbc built up then you can reach 500hp easily and it will bolt right in place of that 307. It will also be cheaper and easier to find parts for.

For 13,000 dollars you can order a Merlin 350sbc from summit that puts out 550hp.

Go find a 455ci Olds out of a big 88 or 98. Slap that sonova***** in there with a cam, and you'll be alot closer.
