Building the 4.0 in the future
I well i ill start by i have bad anti freeze leak and i always find it all over the left side of the block, which make me think its a head gasket. so the means ill be pulling the engine apart in the next few months probly. (and if you think thats not why im leaking anti freeze dont tell me, i got a good exuse to do this now lol) but im really just getting info together right now on what i want to buy and put into it.
im probly gonna pick up some heads for it to have ported and polished before i even start so i can just swap them out. Unless i can find someone that knows exectly what theyre doing and they dont take long to do it on the ones i already have.
i found that comp makes two cams for this engine, whats the difference in the two? what would be better for me to use?
Ill be getting new lifters, rockers, valve springs, push rods and probly a set of headman headers too.
I need advice on exactly what lifters, rockers, valve springs, and push rods ill need though.
If parts can be bought at summit then thats where i want to buy them. Since its a 15 minute drive.
i have never had a big part in building a motor before so im trying to learn alot on this one. I have learned alot of basics from friends and this site. Ill find someone to help me out with the work and all. paying them of course. Im really not gonna be on a small budget since i plan on saving the money up for this after i figure up all me prices. I also have payed very close attention to deathbypsi's engine build thread.
