My left over engine

well gentlmen as u know i just put a new 3.9 in my 04, well i have the other engine with 60k left over with a extra set of heads that have been cleaned up nicely and slightly ported....im thinking maybe ill tare it down and build a beast in my spare time...what would you do? im think maybe send it off and have it bored, then some forged psitons, then new cam and then heads with new lifters and spring then put my v2 vortech on that engine and drop it in! what do u think? how much is it to get something bored out?

if you was to build that engine (by letting someone else do it) with good heads/cam/intakes bore it out or use a 4.2 block with good internals... it could cost quite a bit, I would think 3-6k depending on how deep you want to go.

Re: My left over engine

Yah I'd do that and throw it into your 04. I suppose it be smart to just keep your newer 3.9 with low miles around should anything happen to the built engine.

Or you could find a real cheap rolling body in good shape and drop her in...if you're that ambitious.
