Hello yall I am new to this forum. I recently purchased a 97 cobra with a kennebell on it. I was told it had a bent valve. The car was in pieces when I bought it so I sent the alleged head to the machine shop. It had a bent intake valve. I had that fixed for 120$ thought I got off cheap. Car only cost 3500 with 89,000 miles. I put it all back together and come to find out there is 40 psi in cylinder 1. I put oil in it and it raised to 210. Basically motor is trashed it's already a jasper replacement bored 30. Over. I currently have 04 Terminator rods and Manley forged pistons for 8.5:1 compression just sitting in my garage. What you all think I should do use that setup and Basically have a forged teskid Terminator setup or keep stock compression? Just looking for your thoughts and or advice. It dynoed at 369 rwhp with current setup.
