The engine is from Ed Morad.
Its a 97 Riviera engine with 110k
not swapping heads, the ones that the rockers are on are trashed from the last engine blowing a piston up.

Plans are:
1.9 Rockers
105# springs
Headers
3.4 Pulley
Flow matched fuel injectors
Intense PCM of course

im trying to keep this build on the moderate side, i dont feel like blowing up another engine any time soon.

Did you see TommyGloves for sale post. Flow matched injectors..

Sounds like a great plan. Try not to freeze to death putting it in.
