2276 build (slow paced budget style). Might help to bounce ideas and questions back and forth.

I was gonna do a 2110, but it's sounding more and more like I should just go with a 78 and choose my ...

IT HAS THE ENGINE OF A VAN.

I want to like the 'poor-man's porsche'. But they are just rubbish. I like the aluminum trailing link idea though. I'm gonna be scouting that now.

Might be just as cheap in long run to have a new tank fabricated.... Maybe aluminum....

Must get h ...

thanks homebrew! Ya, I think I'm gonna go with the ebay special. It's a newly forged nitrided jobbie, so I think that'll work well, especially after a through balancing.

So I guess the general conc ...

whatever rods I go with needs to be ARP-bolted.

So, you guys think the GSC ebay-special cranks are not as good?

I would recommend that you check the case and then if in doubt get a reputable machine shop to check/sleeve the lifter bores.

AA thickwall 92mm pistons balanced to within a thousandth.
