    It doesn't need an ls motor. That's giving up. He just needs to fix what's wrong and his 383 should run great and make a ton of hp with those heads etc

    I was actually thinking about putting a bigger cam in it. I was also thinking about having someone do a custom grind.


    I'm going to do a lead down as soon as I get a compressor at my house. I'm going to hopefully borrow my dad's tomorrow.

    Doing an engine swap is not cheap but would be very cool.

    Cammed LQ4 (with a/c ) T-56, 4.10 gears.

    That would be fun annnnnd you'd have a different (newer) platform to build from!

    I wonder what it would cost you if you went the budget route?

    Probably could reasonably cheaply get your current cam reground....150-300 bucks usually. Feed an old hand cam grinder your current specs and he'll probably come up with a good set of specs for you. You'd need to buy a new set of lifters too (70-100 bucks) to go with the cost.

    But there are plenty of off-the shelf cam AND lifter kits that will also get you what you want for 200 shipped to your door.

    And of course, another option is just getting the blow-by issue fixed as cheaply/easily as possible and get it back together....get a new carb and see where you're at. You can always re-do the cam at a later date, and it saves the hassle of rebreaking in the cam when you start her up for the first time. Less hassle NOW and less worries. Then getting the cam you want in the future....

    I just figured since I was taking everything apart anyway, I would upgrade it a bit.

    Go to a couple places and tell them what's going on...swing by C&S and others, tell them you're looking what to do on a budget, how few miles, etc and get a couple quotes. The issue to focus on will be the blow-by (leaky valve covers, dipstick)...they won't give a rat's ass about the black smoke, and if you focus too much on that, they'll tell you its a tuning issue.

    The cheapest way out is disassemble, have it honed, and then reassemble yourself. But the BETTER, and typically not terribly too much more would be take it to them for disassembly, honing, and reassembly. Probably save yourself a few bucks by just taking the short block to them and having them reassemble the short block too. If you reuse the cam, probably save a few bucks right there...don't forget, you'll probably pick up a good bit of power just by dealing with the blow-by issue and new carb.

    Even though it may be cheaper do do as much yourself, you'll probably come out ahead by having a pro in a clean room assemble it. That's what I did for my short-block, had them degree the cam too...turned out great.

    Another possibility is to enroll in a class at MATC.

    Friend of mine does this seemingly every year. Class doesn't cost a lot, you get to use the latest machining equipment, have a pro help out, etc. The only downside is that it takes a while because it's one night a week. But you bench start it, etc, and it'll be ready to get back in the car by early May.

    Engine was fucked from the beginning. I'm lucky shit didn't break from the start. I'll let Jim explain more if he feels he wants to. I could have had a supercharged/turbo motor with all the money I'm putting back into this thing. Should have just did it right from the start and had someone that knew what the fuck they were doing build the engine.

    I'm trying to be really fucking calm right now so I'm just going to try to forget about it for the weekend and go get drunk.

    Guy at work tried removing a tailgate that way at work. Or maybe he was trying to remove the crane from the ceiling, I'm not sure; but it didn't go well.
