Dep,Nice car. HEI is no big deal. Factory distributor was a GM single point so that's probably why it was replaced. Easy enough to put back to stock.
$30,000 is pretty steep. Cars that sell for that much should have all the correct stuff on them and everything should be working.
Anyway, thanks for the heads-up. Actually, I've been discussing the engine build with B2B in e-mail. All the parts now seem to be available. Only real PITA is the piston-head combination. I can get SRP pistons in the right length (5.7 inch), but they require the use of 23 degree heads. And most 23 degree heads have large combustion chambers. Only ones I've found so far that would work would be the Brodix -8 Pro. I can get 56CC combustion chambers in them. That should give me at least 11.5-1 CR. :thumbsup:
He can't . He has cats.:rolling: :rolling: :rolling:I thought there was a thread about parking in the living room. Why not build an engine in the kitchen? Fridge to keep the beer cold is handy, oven to heat the rods and crank gear is there, and the dishwasher to clean everything. Even has hot & cold running water to allow you to relieve yourself and wash your hands.
