I decided to take the car out for a small drive yesterday.... Didnt end so well... completely locked up.


So I got the motor out, and took the header out where I heard some rattling... Part of my number 1 exhaust valve was in it. I yanked that head off and this is what I found.




Piston is now cockeyed in the cylinder, the block has a nice crack going down the cylinder and a hole in the side of the cylinder too.



So new plans are for a stout motor. I don't have a budget, but Id imagine around 9 grand, I need all new internals/ new block/ and new heads. I have a Novi 2000 EFI rengade setup right now.

What would your engine be?

Im thinkin a 4.125 bore Dart setup to keep the bore larger than the stroke, but I don't know about the CI i would wanna go and what stroke.

Thanks guys

What would your guys ideas be to build an engine? I want it to run on e85.

It gets so ridiculous starting from scratch, I'd start watching the for sale section. I wish now I had gone that way, and bought someone else's project, and been so much further ahead money wise! Good luck however you do it!
