    Re: who has built your own motor...

    i have rebuilt several toyota 22re motors.....lowly 4 cylinders but they are like legos. rebuilt a 4.0v6 explorer motor after i blew it up on my friend during a snow chase.(im never gonna live that 1 down. thats why i call them exploders now). rebuilt the 1970 lt1 that my dad was driving in his suburban, god rest its soul. i miss that truck. my brother and i did a complete build on his .030 over 350 in his camaro(89rs). that one was a 350 forged crank from another motor, stock rods, KB 9.5 pistons, 2.02/160 heads that had been lightly ported, performer rpm intake and a modded to770 holley 750 vac secondaries. im sure ive done more but i cant remember alzheimers is setting in.

    Re: who has built your own motor...

    I've rebuilt a few engines.................

    And really "BUILT" a couple engines............

    Mostly Ford Engines

    302's primarily- several of them. Also a 4.6, a couple of 2.3's - N/A and Turbo, a 390, a pair of 351's, and a 2.0.

    I've done the typical Chevy 350 in a carb'd, TPI, MPI, and Vortech, setups.

    Also worked on a pair of Chevy 454's and their 2.3, 3.8, engines.


    Worked on a Dodge 318, 360, 383, 440, and the 2.2 & 2.5 engines.


    Those are my primary ones; or at least the ones I'll admit to.

    My favorite engine to build and work on is still by far the Ford 302. (5.0)

    Well I've done plenty of parts on my car, no tearing into the engine.

    Right now Im building a funny car engine with this guy I just met. Next week the blower comes, and then we build the block and the spare over the next 2 weeks. Really going to be an awesome experience. Im learning so much and its **** awesome.

    I mean I can rebuild any other type of motor, and its just a motor..but to put together a 3500hp machine is just a dream come true. I still am in denial.

    I wanna ask if I can take pics.

    Re: who has built your own motor...

    actually, there is high grade octane, methanol, and Nitromethane...just different levels...but they make it in octane up to 116. The rest are higher mixes, for alcohol, etc.

    Re: who has built your own motor...

    Right now my dad and I are building my 347 for my Mustang. Everything is sitting there just need some time to put it together. 347 Dart Block, forged internals, AFR 185 heads, custom grind cam, and a RPM 2 intake (ported to match heads). Drivetrain is set for the power. I will have an 8:1 compression for whenever I save enough money up to buy a turbo kit from PTK.
