where are you located? There are hundreds of places you can get rebuilt motors from stock to highly modified. Some are better than others, so do your research. I can name several good places, and there are several to stay far away from.


im in brisbane, logan area just looking for a cheap motor i have a few people helpen me with restoring it who are well expierenced with building drag cars from scratch so they should b able to rebuild it and modify it if needed!


I recommend rebuilding that engine instead of a used one, those engines were not good for high mileage and you really never know what your getting for a used motor. This way if you rebuild it at repitible garage you have some warranty and a fresh rebuild.
