So I've had my 87' "Burgundy" for about 7 years. It had been sitting for the past 4 years now in my garage with a blown MHG. I'm finally ready to do this thing right. I've just got the engine out and disassembled. Sent to the machine shop last week and waiting for the go ahead on what size pistons, bearings, MHG to use. I'm going to have the entire rotating assembly balanced with forged pistons and rods, also go through the head and have a valve job done. So far I have lex afm, 550's, safc 2, AFPR, walbro, profec-b. I really want to reach 500rwhp and have piece of mind the engine will hold up. My current dilema is what turbo/manifold setup to go with. I saw a guy on 7mpower with a t4 adapter on his stock manifold and was wandering how well that would actually work.
here's some current pics
