today i was trying to help a buddy of mine look for a car. from what he has told me he wants to get a good, reliable yet have potential to build up a 4 cyl(dont ask me why)
i know how many people can argue that the 3800 is the ls of v6'* and i was just wondering if you guys know of any strong 4 bangers that can be cheaply modded or have alot of potential. thanks
I think they lose their timing rubber band to often. But they can be bumped to 9 lbs. of boost with the turbo. I had a Pinto and a Mustang II with it way back when and wasn't happy with it. Tranny is a real weak spot.
Good point Venom...You can can have all the horsepower you can muster out of an engine, but it'* only going to be able to deliver the HP and torque that the rest of the power training can take - maybe only once!
Yep. Snapped the bolts right off the flexplate on the Mustang. No sooner did I get it fixed then I blew the front seal. I can't remember how many timing Belts I threw/broke. And what a bitch to line up the timing marks with a couple beers in ya.
