    Are these 355 chevy small block are rebuild or brand new? And what's the cam lifted. Thanks

    Asked by: Chevyz7129
    The block that we use for these engine builds would be a stock remanufactured Chevy 350 block. The cam that we use in this engine will have a .480 Intake Lift / .486 Exhaust Lift.
