This is what I'm dealing with.....watch the whole 1 minute video.
I know, right?Thats a whole lot of straight line speed!!...... We tried to get around that by dividing our free for all into three time groups. That way we we could accommodate the maximum number of cars possible into competitive (semi..) categories.
A new 5.2 short block is only 2500.00 at Tasca.Well, looks like pieces of metal in the manifold and number 6 sparkplug being headless are probably not a very good indication. Now just waiting to see if the heads are ok or not.
If the heads are ok, then thinking...
1) Gen3 Aluminator shortblock
2) AED short block
3) Rebuild new engine here... (and hows that workin out?)
If the heads are dead....
A) Gen 3 aluminator long block... but the electronics will play nice with the rest of the car?
B) Used Junkyard gen 2 with goodies (A la @Fabman )
If none of the above....
Take up gardening?
He is a good friend and charges me at a great discount. But I think from now on its short blocks.Good luck regardless of your decision and I have to admit the rebuild process in Chile has been a rough situation for you. Any help from your builder since the motor was essentially just recently finished?
Yes, the same stock bottom end that's in Alissandro's car and he just won the TT2 nationals with it.He is a good friend and charges me at a great discount. But I think from now on its short blocks.
That 5.2 shortblock looks VERY tempting. I assume thats with a cross plane?
