    SOLD

    Short block (no head) from the Blimey cabrio, includes complete bottom end, fresh seals, new timing chain. 160k miles, but 158k of that was with an automatic transmission, so the car has only seen a few days of high revving. Most hard driving over past 100k miles has been with methanol injection, so cylinders and pistons look very good, just a little carbon on the pistons. Motor runs strong! Was putting down approximately 230whp with TPR-1 head, RMW street cam, and 17% pulley.

    Would be a great core for a built engine, or a ready-to-run replacement for someone with a bad bottom end.

    $500, Pickup at 27540, or you pay freight.

    A couple of pics show the motor with the head, but the head has been sold.
