Although your block is not a roller block, you can get retro fit cams and lifters from edlebrock, crane, etc... If you are going to keep your stock head and springs, do not go any bigger than a .500 lift @ 50*.

If you have $6, get a catalog from PAW, performance automotive warehouse. They have a Ford specific book with almost every vendor and tons of specs on each cam. To be on the safe side, if you replace the cam and lifters, get a new set of valve springs matched to the cam for the best performance and reliability.

Those are my two cents.

Just use a quality drop in tie-bar lifter, not the retro-fit stuff with reduced base cams.

What kind of price are you looking for on the 351w roller block?

you want just a block, or all the parts for a whole engine?
I have a fresh pulled block, and a freshly machined block (not bored)
