Re: chevy 350 crate engine

alrite thanks. im just checkin out how much a crate motor would cost cuz theres this 1990 chevy 4x4 sport that im lookin at that has 150,000+ miles on it and i might buy it for 4 grand and it has a 4" lift, 2" body, 35" BFGs, bitchen stereo, 700 R4 tranny, chip, and some other stuff. and i just wanted to see how much id end up dumping into the truck to make it last my drive down south. i drove it yesterday and it feels really good i was surprised for it having 150,000+ miles on it

Re: chevy 350 crate engine

really? yeah the one i rode it drove really nice, it makes some engine noises though, im not sure what they were it sounded like his fan was bent and knicking against something and it just squeeks and all this little stuff. it had really good power i was surprised. would it be better to just buy a new engine or to a rebuild? which would be cheaper or better? when i get it im probally gonna figure out what i wanna do with the engine, get the tranny rebuilt, front and rear end rebuilt, repaint it, and put some offroad lights on it and just go offroadin!

Re: chevy 350 crate engine

as long as nothing is really hurt, i would say rebuild is the way to go. for around $500 you can completely rebuild it and throw in a few upgrades (ie: better injectors, intake, cam, etc...). companys make a lot of stuff that you can put on a TBI motor and work with the stock computer so you dont have to worry about messing it up. eldebrock makes a performer intake for TBI, http://www.turbocity.com makes a lot of TBI stuff, and crane makes a TBI friendly cam. i think you can get more power for less money out of a rebuild. thats the route im planning on going.

Re: chevy 350 crate engine

how much of a chore is it to rebuild an engine?

Re: chevy 350 crate engine

I bought one of those crate engines for my truck last fall. Cost, around $1300 without a core charge I think (can't remember right now). In my opinion, rebuild it yourself or get someone to do it. That's the way I'll do it next time. I just don't think she's got enough power for what I want.

If it hurts, soak it in cider!
