ya man ask any questions you want
my machine work(block) was done by blue ribbon racing on 2nd ave in nashville
the block prepped/cleaned/bored .030/honed/decked/freeze plugs & cam bearings installed/pistons/new wristpins/rods attached to pistons
lifter bores honed and thats all i can think of that all ran me $800
my crank checked out so luckily i didnt have to have anything done
from what ive seen that is kind of high in price but the quality of there work is incredible
not to mention they had all that done(including ordering pistons) in around a week
heads= tristatecylinderhead.com gt-40p-thay basically come built(oversized valves,5 angle valve job etc)-$550


yes i still plan to spray the piss out of this motor

and no the 306 is for my fox not the v6 drop top
im lookin into a procharger for it tho :]

sweet. im not really into fords too much, but i always love a fresh motor build. (noob-to-big-engines question here: does 306 mean its just a bored 302? cause i know ford built a 302 but ive never heard of a 306) anyway, nice motor im sure it will rip. and im loving that valve cover too haha

Yeah, its a modified 302-based engine. Usually increased bore and decreased stroke I believe :?

actually its just a 302 bored .030 makes it a 306
a 331 is the motor thats bored .030 over
and the stroke is redused


and yes that 800 included the pistons
it was 400 something for just them
so thats half of my cost right there
im wanting to say a crank polish from there was
50ish...but dont hold me to that

So last night i was driving in lebanon
and i was at the four way stop at demos and cici's pizza(if your familar with lebanon)
i turned left(sideways) running around 4k rpm
when the motor started screamin metal to metal screechs
then locked up
i rolled it into cicis pizza and check it out
it would not turn over at all even tryed roll starting
i let it sit for an hour or so
and it started up but screeched still
so i think(more like know) it locked up a bearing somewhere
so for now the 306 is screwed
dunno why it happened: it had oil, it wasn't running hot, and it wasn't over reved
so ima have to tear it down
ill keep yall posted
how does sprayN331 sound?? lol

p.s. no i was not spraying when it locked up
