New Motor

So this weekend me and my Dad are going to go out and look for either a junkyard 302. And I was thinking should I just go ahead and put forged internals on it since I'm going to be tearing it apart to clean it up any way......

Re: New Motor

some years had forged pistons stock, but I would go ahead and redo it all and get better internals while I was at it and rods etc etc etc if your goal is boosting or nitrous

Re: New Motor

Probably going to boost it eventually, but that will be a long while down the road. So I figure that I'll just go ahead and do that. Thanks

Would be a good idea if you have plans to rebuild it anyway! Will give you room to do upgrades and like you said to add some boost later!

Re: New Motor

Yup, I was talking to my dad about getting a v8 mustang and he said why don't we just buy a junkyard motor then you'll have something to do Lol. So we are probably going to go to a junkyard tomorrow after my job interview and see if we can find a 302

I can definitely agree with you dad on this one! One it will give you a project to do, and two you will learn a lot about engines and what it takes to put one together! "Why, if I think about it hard enough, I could remember my first engine build.." lol

Awesome plan, wish I could have done it different. Everything I know about cars is from first hand experience, in other words I'm pretty much self taught. Even after over 15 years of working on them, I still learn something new every time lol.

Re: New Motor

Most of the stuff I know right now is either self taught or my dad taught me and he taught himself. But I took an automotive class in 10th grade and I tend to find those classes really interesting and relative to what I like so I figured I would take those classes so that I can build my own stuff instead of taking it to shops and having to pay a ridiculous amount for them to do it for me....
