As the title says.
If money was no object,what parts would you use to build the ultimate small block.
Give details of your choice of block,heads,valves,rods,pistons,crank,intake,carb or injection,etc.(no turbo or superchargers please) and your reason why you would use these particular parts.Lets see if on paper at least we can come up with the ultimate kick a$$ small block.

lets get some more hard and fast details laid out here. Sounds like people like the aluminum block from motown... should it bored? What specific heads, cam, pistons, ignition, etc?

I'm starting to save right now so I can afford it in 5 years!
