    FOOK Well I just got a call from my mechanic and he knows what was wrong with my car. No oil pressure. Before you say check your gauge, I've had the car for a year, and the gauge never worked, even when it ran fine. A local builder started it up, and listened to it, ran it for about a minute, so my engine is FOOKED. My mechanic hooked a mechanical gauge to it, and read 0. Not good So my tech. question is: better to swap parts over to a new engine? or try to break it down and replace all the bearings? My mods/parts are in my sig.

    If I do end up going new engine, will my 351 W heads flow enough? (unported)

    Make me feel better, and let me know if you know of someone who has a cheap stock motor... I'm trying to get away with not buying a brand new motor. If I do have to go that route, Rick91 GT will get the call.:mad: :mad: :mad::mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad

    Damn I am sorry bro, look for a stocker or give rick a call, that would be B A! Then the car would be one big BAMF . Like Dane Cook's CT 2004. ( trying to cheer you up a bit if you even know who Dane Cook is)

    LOL, I'm just mad about having to get a new engine, and all. I just bought a NOS kit too. That might be up for sale, or just wait to be installed.

    Either way, I'm gonna toy around with the broken engine. Learn LOTS
