A Core motor is Just That...........

It Sounds like you're looking for a Running Take-Out..........

If you want to shop around a little on ebay you can find some decent complete motors for a good deal. Stay away from the wild build ups. Also, a core is just a rebuild able part.

I'm just guess but would a compleat motor be new part or used parts?

Basicly I have a good spot in the garage for a 350 to sit and have me work on a bit at a time. Basicly what I would want is a v8 ware every thing but the intake, carb, and cam are ok (these are the peices I plan to buy performance parts for). So every thing aside from that needs to be ok (oil pan, oil pump, heads, pistens, rods, etc).

I was hoping to find this for around 200-300 but I'm not sure if that is a resonable goal or not. If some one around here had one for 200 I would probably have the money to buy it in about a week.

different materials, different design, different dimensions for all the moving parts, etc.

hcker2000 I suggest getting some books and doing some reading about engines and how combos go together and work well together etc.

From your questions and comments it seems your relatively new to engines and before you start throwing money around, you should know what your getting into.

There is more to a performance engine than a cam, carb, and intake. While these are three very important parts (that must be matched to each other) NEVER forget heads. Heads are one of the single most important parts for an engines ability to produce power.

With the money I am guessing you have currently, it will take awhile to build an engine, let alone a tire burner. All I can say is save up and buy quality parts. That will save headaches down the road.

Also you must not forget what the engine is going into. Design the engine for the car, not the other way around. Dont forget about stall converters, transmission, intended rear gears and driving RPM etc.

Read up until you feel confident about what you want. Then get out a sheet of paper and write down specificically what your after (power output, rpm range, vehicle, transmission, vehicle useage etc.).

Good luck. Stick around the boards long enough and you'll learn a lot.

Yea i know a good bit about heads but right now it would take me a good 2 years to save up for a good set. I would just step up this 305 but from what I hear that is a vary good waste of time and money. I'm not trying to do this on the cheap but I am trying to get the most bang for the buck on a budget.

Understandable. You can get a great set of iron heads for 700 some bucks.

Keep the 305 as the driver engine while you build up the 350. Being on a tight budget like you are, dont be puttin money into your daily engine. Never know when things might break .

That was the plan was to build the 350 then when I got it built I would just drop it in and go. My grandfather has a hughe garage I can keep it in and work on it in. So what kind of cash do you think I would be looking at for 350 with about 350 hp(about triple what I have now) would end up costing?
