what would be needed for this motor to start? Im inexperienced w/ this part of the car, from longblocks to shortblocks, Sorry.

w/ a 8.8 CR whats the boost level this motor can handle?

I already have a CAS TT kit, i just need a motor

Thanks
Brandon

Sorry, I was just going to post a link, but did the whole post instead...

You would need the intake, sensors, heads, and front cover/rear cover/cam shaft/oil pump (I have a spare oil pump I will send) to make this thing run with your TTI setup. Basically, you need to scavange some basic parts off your motor that you allready have, order a custom cashaft ($400) and get the best heads for turbo application you can that will give the right CR with the pistons in the motor (specs on pistons are in post, so a head builder/engine builder can figure out the best head choice).

This would be a nice complete way to get the best forged shortblock for TT application....the same motor that came out of LPE $39,999 package....

you can email me at [email protected]

P.S. what is a Yz125? Motorcycle or dirt bike?

Rob...

No cr test or leak down test...but I can have a rpresentative from LPE provide a statement that this motor has 7,000 miles on it and is in perfect shape, and that I purchased it from them just a week or so ago (I live 30 minutes north of their shop and am a "old time" LPE customer) if you like.

Why are you selling if you just bought it a week ago?

I was going to use it in my Camaro and put a Procharger F1R on it, but decided to keep my 382 and put new cam, heads, exhaust, and redo the nitrous a little....shooting for 9's on drag radials full weight daily driver (although not daily driven)!

I kind of bought it impulsively but I have no experience in forced induction myself, but have been a customer of LPE since 1990 and heard about this engine for sale and bought it just in case.

$3400 shipped to your door! If your planning forced induction, this is the best place to start.

no actually sure...it is part of their $39,995 package...I have no idea what this particular shortblock would go for from LPE by itself (if they even offer it this way).

Just curious how "good of a deal" we're talking vs new. I wouldn't mind putting a better bottom end in my car with the Mag, but would be curious how this setup would effect what I have, and what the same setup would cost me new. Let me ask John at 21st CMC and I'll give you a shout when I find something out. :cheers:
