What's the problem? Have it rebuilt & put on your upgrades. "Shot" engines need rings, bearings, seals, hone bore job, line bore (crankshaft) journals, cook & clean the block, check for cracks, & valve & valve guide job. Good or better than new because your rebuilt engine is "seasoned" & will make MORE hp & run great. Seek professionals that specialize in your type of car. Add a performance camshaft & kit, .030 to .060 oversized pistons etc.
