    Previous owner descriptions of engine:

    "the motor is bored 30 over with new rods, and pistons. It has Brian Crower 272/272 cams"

    "Bored over .30 and has 282 cams and it lopes something serious. Engine was redone at 85k on odometer."

    So far, typical used DSM lies. Bore is stock and so are pistons. Cams are aftermarket, but I can't quite be sure what they are.

    UPDATE: These are Crower 272's (Stage 2 p/n 64413-2).

    Background:
    I purchased this car locally and got ripped off royally. It has a bad tranny and a bad engine. Luckily, I have parts laying around to reduce the impact. Hopefully I can turn the car around because it looks pretty decent. Plan to get the car to stock height because I don't think that the 215/65 LRR tires I have will fit and it sits too low with the 2 inch drop of the Megan Springs.

      I'm converting it to auto. Can't keep a decent clutch in it. I'm on my 3rd on in 2 years. And I refuse to go twin disk. I daily the car and don't like traffic with a stiff pedal.
