cool...

im also leaning towards carbureting it,
why? you can make ALOT of hp with EFI...

which carb will allow it to flow the best??,
That is purely a matter of opinion. back when i built carbed motors, i really loved Demon carbs...
for 350 rwhp you will need something in the 750-800 cfm range.

I have not seen a blower manifold for the LT1 heads. You can modify your heads or the manifold to work with each other. Not too hard to do. I have done a few conversions. If you were going to run a Roots type blower I would just use a Gen 1 type block and heads instead of the LT1. Save a lot of headaches and you can still run injection with something like DFI7 or Holley Commander 950 easily. Or even a Megasquirt if you are on a 'budget'.
