I am gonna get them rebuilt since I have had 3 engines rebuilt from this one shop my dad used when he restored his muscle cars. I am looking at it from a business point of view so I want to keep costs down and profits up.
I just read that a rebuilt engine will only last for 1/2 the life time of a new one. A complete stock rebuil goes for about 650. A performance buil will go for 941 and includes, brass guides, bigger camshaft, and double timming belt.
My new questions are
What kind of pistons should I get?. I've heard shorter and I've heard longer. Shorter doesn't really make sense to me.
And shuld I get bigger valves?
To get more air and gas in and more exhaust out.
Should the motor's rpm be higher?
Thanks everyone for the help. Here is a link of the 3 mustangs I've rebuilt. Just need new paint now. Let me know what you think.
