Well you just built the 2v so its completely fresh save it throw in the 4v till it dies then you still have the new 2v or whatever route you want to go personally I would do the 2v due to being freshly rebuilt for reliability

What was done during the rebuild of the 2v? I assume you didn't bore or change pistons or rods...correct, probably just honed, new rings/bearings along with cams/heads/lower intake. This motor with the cams/heads/intake should be substantially stouter than a stock 4v.

The only issue with the 97 4v motor is the ring lands on the pistons are not the strongest(I broke some at moderate to high boost in my 97 Cobra), and if you are only going to be using a 75 shot then I'd say put the 4v motor in and see what happens. The 97 motor should have a steel crank but the rods and pistons leave a lot to be desired and on a 100k motor you never know how it was treated.............just my opinion.

Who did the build on the 2V and did they use stronger rods/pistons or re-use the factory?


If the rebuild on the 2V is good I'd go with that just because its fresh. But the 4V will make more power.
