    Exclamation Cornfield Coronet Engine Build


    One of the most rewarding experiences in building a car is putting the motor together.One of the most rewarding experiences in building a car is putting the motor together. A used junkyard engine might get your car running, but in terms of long-term safety and reliability, a fresh, healthy motor is essential. If your muscle car is ready for an engine rebuild, there are a number of options out there. Crate engines will do nicely for some, and many new motors can be made to look old and correct. Many of you are fortunate to have an original car and can rebuild its born-with engine. Then there are those of us who are attempting to piece together a car that carefully mimics the higher-performance cars that were built in the '60s and early '70s. My Coronet fits into that category.

    I don't know why people build 383 engines for race cars when the block has the same dimensions as a 440 except with a shorter block height. Some parts are different for a 383 and since fewer people build these engines the parts are more expensive. I will take the added 57ci every time.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
    My wife has a 2004 GTO with the rare SAP, 18" wheels, K&N Cold Air System, MSD, Ported TB, Frost tune, Denso Iridium, Flowmaster cat-back, 3200 Yank, 75k
