.030 is standard and you'll need a complete gasket kit and oil pump and cam if you decide to swap at this time..new timing chain....and once machine shop determines it needs a bore of .030...then buy pistons so they can match bore to pistons and matching rings to pistons and you can reuse your stock rods...and can have them reconditioned if desired

+1

it would be like having a brand new engine, and with the trickflow topend kit, youll be making decent power


why a 75shot? most ppl start with 100shot, and work there way up, from what ive heard the STOCK parts can handle 100shot pretty easy, and ive seen quite a few dyno's where a 150shot jumps HP by 100hp! (in most cases )


GOOD LUCK
and keep us updated on your build!

I'll help with anything. I love working on stangs. If I don't know how to do it I figure it out. But as for machine shops you have a better shot there in Austin.

yeah. the only real shop is south austin machine shop and i've heard good things as well as bad things so i really don't know. if all else fails i'll go there. but i wish houston was closer cuz i heard there are hella good shops there. yeah man i might take you up on that offer. i'm the exact same way about not knowing things and figuring them out. pm me. like i said i'll probably rip it down next weekend or the weekend after that. i had wrist surgery yesterday so i'm swollen as hell. (who knos why i keep typing it freekin hurts) and hope it goes down by next week when parts get here

Sounds like fun. I need to find a shop somewhere close to get my GT40 heads cleaned up but I don't have the cash to play with it right now so I just tweak things here and work what I can to play with my car. I am getting ready to rebuild a buddies POS SRT4 motor because he doesn't know what he is doing and he thinks he does and I am gettin $200 for it. Not a bad deal. I work cheap lol. Just bought a house, have 2 car payments, an 9 month old daughter and a wife with Army pay doesn't leave alot of room for playinglol
