So I got the turbo completely hooked up on my car today and went to start it!!!! Turns out that a little moisture got in the motor from leaving the intake off for a couple of days and it is completely locked up... so in two weeks I will be ordering a 450hp complete forged 347 plus I will put 15+ lb's of boost to it it just sucks that I have to take it all apart and start over

Sucks that you didn't even get to use the kit yet and already have to change the motor.

Re: Huge problem

Just make sure the water is out, spray some lubricating penetrant into the cylinders, let it set and work for awhile, leave the plugs out, pull it down the road with another vehicle, put it in gear and pop the clutch out a few times.
I've had this work on vehicles that have set for several years and yours hasn't been setting there long has it?

P.S. If you are buying a new engine that will be boosted to 15 psi, make sure you get a Boss or other aftermarket 4-bolt main block.

Your choice of course, but I doubt it is stuck very hard from no longer than that. Luck

Sorry to hear that but I thinking that your issue might have been more then a little bit of moisture

I don't know I didn't build the motor. But at we talking moisture or is there water in the oil. Now if the motor sat out in the rain for a month but engines but default are totaled sealed and if moisture was the cause then we would all have the same problem . And what do u mean by locked not not trying to be a sob

It was sitting out there with no hood and no upper and lower intake for a while...and by locked up I mean it won't turn over...I also put a ratchet on the crank with a 5 foot jack handle for a breaker bar and it wouldn't budge

yeah that is pretty bad.but hey you never know,it would still be worth putting some lubricant in there.even some wd40.if you can get it to turn over you could always get it running as long as its not to far taken apart.from there listen for valve train clatter,knocks etc.then maybe do a compression test and see what kinda shape it still may be in.if you still dont want to use it and it runs you may get more money on a sell or trade than you would as scrap. just my thoughts.
