    Hey everyone, I sold my last sn95 ended up regretting it and bought another.. Has a slight connecting rod knock, has stock bore, edelbrock 600cfm carb weiand lower intake, gt40p heads, ford svo 1.6rr, flaming river rack, i am going to be putting 4.10's in it and a 3000 stall. Would you go with just rebuilding the bottom end stock and throw a cam in it? Or bore it out, keep in mind i don't have a engine shop close to me..

    Honestly? Contact Latemodel restoration and buy one of their 302 short blocks and toss a cam into it.. Save up and have something stronger built later on if you decide to go fast.

    Depends how much you wanna spend. Cheapest option would be to just get an Explorer take out engine, swap the cam and then put your intake/carb/ignition on it.
