Forum for discussing engines in general, anything engine and not tuning-specific belongs here, such as power adder discussions (turbos, blowers, nitrous, meth / water injection, exhaust setups, etc...)

Mach1 32V project

Unread postby Pappacosworth » Thu Jun 22, 2017 4:40 pm

I managed to damage my block, not badly but I try to make everything as good as I can. Block needs boring, boring need torque plates, and eventually fixing isn't cheap. So if I use bunch of money to fix it, why don't I make it better.
If I bore and fix current engine, na version with little bigger c/r costs almost as much than readily available iron block filled with bullet proof goodies. The problems: ready short block is with 18cc dished pistons, so it would need some kind of charger, c/r is 8.5:1.
I can't afford one right now, can engine be timed and tuned so it will be driveable? Terminator Eaton swap would be nice, and so is turbo/s. Eaton and iron block does add weight, turbos could be cheaper to build.
Among other things, I'd like to drive my car soon, it's been two years in garage and motivations is disappearing.

Are you asking if an engine you build you can also tune yourself? Yes, absolutely. A low compression blower or turbo car would probably be easier to tune than a high compression NA motor.

That too, I'm having hard time choosing which way to go. NA engine could be better daily, but I loved to drive wifes SC Tbird.

the 4v engines do not like compression, its best to build a 9:1 engine 4v and toss boost on it

I have block now, if only I had more time for installing. I got injectors too, 47 lbs Gt500 set.

that was a bad move, any healthy boosted 4v will peg 47lb injectors very easily, should have 80s or larger

How can I mount knock sensors outside block. There are no places between heads. There is extra threads near engine mounts but on the other side it is rather low. I'd like to use all eec capabilities.

I just made deal from Terminator Eaton: charger, intake, heat exchanger, injectors, throttle body. Mainly all parts above block. I think I need to fabricate some brackets like in Trilogy's marauder kit. I plan to use my ecu and alternator.

My luck, it was from 5.4 Lightning. Doesn't fit under hood or engine.
