Hey guys
looking at buying a motor of a mate.

393 crank, most likely 030 factory block, grouted to water pump holes I believe.
Had some hard driving ie; couple of burnout comps and powercruise events was built about 2 years ago.

Question is its had a bit of gas 100-150 shot I think, a couple of times. How would a factory block handle that??

Cheers Scott

the block will put up with n2o for some time but you need a massive fuel pump , known good fuel pressure gauge , the floats must be tip top not bent up crooked or anything etc etc , and tough pistons !

that's right man we got mills that'll blow that heap of yours right off the road .

Are you gonna throw N2O at it? If not run it. If you are just keep an eye on the plugs

100-150 HP NO2 shot is not much. I am spraying that much at a stock cast piston motor with no problems.

Scott, might be barking up the wrong tree but does the engine in question belong to a bloke called "Palf"?
