Engine explodes at idle

Ok, I posted this in my build thread as well but,

If you haven't seen my build Im doing a frame off resto to my 84 CJ7. I'm putting a SBC 327 in it as well.I need some help finding a decent rebuild kit with cam and lifters included. I found one from Engine Tech but until I found it I have never heard of them.

Anyone have experience the EngineTech Parts. I can get the whole rebuild kit for my 327 for a tad under 400 with them. I don't really want to skimp on quality, but this motor isn't going to be super horse nascar motor. I'm just hoping to hear it will last.


Anybody Know

The best rebuild kits I have had good luck with are the ones from the NAPA store. Or JEGS.com

A friend of mine has a set of heads for that 327 they are 202 double humps if I recall thats what he called them.

Hmm I will have to look into NAPA. I get discounts through work to NAPA. I got those heads too

More of an attention getter but I'm sure glad I wasn't driving that thing when the engine died. and Im still in IA for a few more months. Really looking forward to the move though
