Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
Or should i just buy a used motor?
Thanks everyone for the help.
eBay and do work on it.... unless you find a nice used motor for the low
Or you could always get one of the frankenstein engines that DSM Graveyard - Your #1 Source for DSM Parts! sell..Those engines can handle up to 500 hp..
eBay is my last resort any other websites you know of?
Yes I'm doing it my self with some help of my friends that own shops. And the budget just got my tax return so not a big concern.
The crank is lock i pulled the oil pan off and it had a cam ring or holder don't know what its called exactly. The motor is out already one of the piston is jammed by the cam ring or holder.
Do you guys have a list of things to get? Don't really know what to get.
That all depends on what you plan on doing with your car. Obviously forged are gonna be much stronger and capable of holding more boost and supporting higher horsepower goals. There has been quite a few people out there that have broke the 400+ whp mark on stock internals, but going with a build engine will give you a little more room to play with.
Edit: black widow beat me to it by a few minutes haha.
The problem with forged internals is they expand so much that if you don't let them warm up and get on it to early you will get blow by.
The good thing with them though is they are STRONG. I have heard they wear out faster but I don't know if that is because of the fact that people who buy them most likely have money to blow and just run the hell out of them with other high HP parts.
As for a used motor, good luck with that. You really have no clue what you are buying.
Oh OK so in other words its better. I'll post pics later of my built and ride.
