Motor is back in the truck and it is running (still on jack stands). However BOTH head gaskets are seeping a little coolant. I can't win with this thing. I should have used the SCE Titan gaskets instead of the Pros with copper coat. Round number who knows now.
It has caps already on it. Short block is ready to be put together. Just using it right now to mock up the Alum heads and Intake combo. Once that is complete. Give it a bath and put it together. Version 2.0 for the Lunch Money Syclone.
Pm me your number if you would like to talk about what it takes to make a quick Street Syclone. I should be able to give you some hard lessons learned once I know what your goals are. One more thing when you find a Truck make sure that you have plenty of Jack stands around :)...
Shoot me your contact number and I will give you a call. I have one and in the process of putting motor back in it. Once completed it will be up for sale. I might be able to help you find one but not sure on/at what stage you are looking for. I don't get on here much but I will check...
Stock crank, good crank alot of money. All billet main caps. Stock/modded intercooler have an air to air not sure if I want to install it. 64/66 Gen 2 PTE Turbo with a buick flange and downpipe/external gate. Thinking about using turbo on my Buick and detune truck as it is a real PITA to...
Don,t know what kind of power they will take as I have yet to find out. But I will tell you at over 30 lbs of boost the crank will flex and tighten up the mains and knock out billet main caps out of the block. I am still waiting to put motor back toghter for round two,
Can't say on a Buick 231 but I do have on a 9.1 265 CI Syclone motor with 3000 stall. Turbo is a little different (S cover 63). Spools fast but you will have to do something about boost management.
I would also be interested in the block with no o-rings. Sorry about your loss and hopefully you and your Uncle had a chance to work on the Buick together. PM me when you want to sell.
Does anyone have a busted/junk TTA Head. Casting number 702 or 3030 not the 515. I would like to cut it apart and see how thick it is in some areas. I am working on a set of heads for Fastair6 and would like to try something.
