    spun rod bearing

    Hey everyone I am new to the forum here. I know you guys have probably answered these questions 4000 times, but I don't have a lot of free time to read through all the posts here...I have a 98 Trans Am that has just spun a rod. Now I am looking to purchase a new long block for a motor swap. Does anyone have suggestions on where I could get one for a reasonable price?

    Also, I don't have a huge budget, but since I am going to be putting a new motor in the car anyway, I am looking for some advice on the least expensive ways to beef up the HP during this process. Any simple suggestions would be appreciated.

    Try here^^. Why long block? Can't you get a short block and swap over what you need?

    I figured a long block because the oil has metal in it and I figure there is probably additional damage done on the top end. I am not sure, but if I do it, i think I should do it right..
