Real TECH: ENGINE BUILD THREAD
I want to see what others have used as far as parts and machine work and what direction (performance/reliability, etc) that you took with your engine build/rebuild. Moreover, I am looking for CONTRIBUTIONS from others who have built/rebuilt thier 4.0 liters, and the best parts for specific builds.
- Best use of stock parts?
* Best year block
* best year head
* best crank stroker/non-stroker apps
* Best con rods Stroker/non stroker apps
* Best cam in stock form
* Interchangability of stock parts (Ex: RENIX block, H.O. head, etc)
- Best aftermarket parts?
*Pistons, custom or stock, cast or forged, coated or non
*Cam profiles and specs, stock grind to insane lift and duration
*Where to buy
*anything else performance-related. Etc, etc.
- Tech tips/ resources?
* Recommended machine work
* Performance upgrades
* Parts suppliers
* Specs, profiles, blueprints, dyno results.
I'd like to see what others are building, what it cost them, and what approach they took to doing so, and make it an open discussion so that we all might gain some knowledge from this thread.
Let the fun begin.
