There'* a place in Springfield, MA that is good. I don't know how cheap they are but it would be worth giving them a call. I'll give Bill the info...

Well I think I'm going to do some research make sure I have all the torque specs and give it a try. That is if it makes sense financially.

As long as I do my homework and make sure I get the machining done properly I think I'll be ok.

First things first I need and engine.

Whats the worst that could happen? Oh wait isn't that how I got in this situation in the first place? Wow. I am a sick man.

I have a long block from my old L67 I'll be striping down very soon. If you need I block cheap you can have mine, it will be good if you're going to bore it over .020" I think I only spun a bearing. When my old L67 went I decided to take lemons and make power "cough" I mean lemonade so I got a complete L32 and a cam and went at it

And Intense is in Ohio. Rouge do you guys bore blocks or could you recommend someone by you?

Of course this is just an option for Mike.

Rogue is getting called Red again

I guess I missed it? IS that a modded engine? Why the red head? And what was the direct cause of that?

Could of been a few things.

1. I was using mid grad gas and didn't know that that could really damage my engine(guess we learn by doing.) :(

2. The engine was replaced like a year ago and I had a local guy put it together. (big mistake. Bill what was it like 12 missing bolts?) The guy was a jack ***.

3. One of the retainers wasn't properly secure.

What ever it was it was the same result the valve just popped off and bounced around in my cylinder destroying everything.

Bill am I missing anything?
