$1300 isn't much to R&R an engine and rebuild it. :confused:
Exactly what are you getting for that?

Ok, thanks for getting that info for me. :good:

It appears that you are getting a basic rings, bearings, gaskets and seals overhaul. What are your plans as far as future engine mods?
What year car/engine are you working on?
What mods do you currently have?

The vehicle I am working on is a 1988 5.0 mustang LX convertible with an H O it's pretty much stock except for the rear end I have 37 three's and a stage 2 clutch the guy at the machine shop said I can put a stage 2 cam on there but I don't know which combination I should go with any suggestions for the stock motor that will be basically rebuilt
Thank you very much and God bless you

Changing just the cam isn't going to benefit you much.
I would save up for an HCI or Top End kit (heads, cam & intake).
There are Trick Flow kits that will net you around 350 HP at the flywheel.

This seems like a good chance to ask a question I've had. In a few months, I'm going to rebuild the bottom end and get a Trick Flow top end kit. What is the difference in the track heat and street burner kits? Which would be the best for a car that sees highway use? I want it to have a lot of power, but still have semi decent street manners.

The track kit works better at higher rpm thus giving you that extra 10 or so hp they say over the street kit. If your using it on the street and mainly stay at lower rpm then stick with street kit.

I spoke with him about 2 hours ago and he told me that they were pulling the engine out as we speak and he would let me know if there were any further problems but I gave him the car in good running condition there shouldn't be any problems

It already comes with a double roller timing chain... Don't ever think those need replacing? But I'm no expert on that... Where's Trojan man?

Yes even the double roller chains tend to stretch over time and need replacing.

Some gear drives can cause problems with EFI, darned if I can remember exactly why though. :eek::

Me, I want a belt drive, but they are to darned expensive, so double roller it is.
I like this set up the best - Rollmaster Timing Set SBF
