Re: Emission Legal 5.9L V8
How much do you want to spend? I built a 5.9, and it was about $3k after balancing and $500 worth of pistons. This included the flywheel, clutch kit, and bell-housing to a NV-4500. I plan on wiring up the newer '98 fuel injection. (project on hold because of new house)
It would a lot cheaper to go with a '95 5.2 magnum. This system is exactly the same as the MPFI kit that Hesco sells, but with 2 more cylinders. The crank angle sensor is mounted to the engine block, which makes it a lot easier to adapt without the expensive harmonic balancer.
If you wanted to drive down the front range to the Springs, I could get you into a '95 18k mile 5.2 engine with AX-15 attached for $800. I think I may also have a wiring harness with all the sensors to throw in. The tranny is new, missing the shifter.
