Just wondering how much value it would add to the car. I have a coupe with a rebuilt 4100 with 0 miles. But it needs to be dialed in, timing set, or whatever. doesnt run perfect but nothin major. And i have a 92' with a 5.0 with 130,xxx miles, runs and drives perfect.

Just looking for some opinions, if it had a 5.7 i would probably do it without hesitation.

Did you get the 4100 rebuilt yourself or you bought the car with the 4100 rebuilt in it?

bought it already done, im am probably going to have that motor looked over before i do anything. But you can tell its rebuilt, all the seals are new and its been painted. But they had some wires crossed when they reinstalled the motor so they never got it running. Therefore the timing has never been set, and who knows what else it may need. It does fire right up though.

I would put that 90's frame under the Coupe bro...the 4100 can't be compared to that 5.7 even if it has been rebuilt or cleaned up and it would probably be a more interesting car to buy for a potential buyer...I know I would pay more for a 5.7 in a Coupe than a 4100...I don't trust those 4100...I had one iun my Coupe and I got a 305 put in there instead...Just my humble opinion bro... :)

No, it has a 5.0. Like i said IF it had the 5.7 then i wouldnt have any doubts. But it has the 5.0 with over 130,xxx miles. And i had another one before with less miles and it smoked like a train. So im not wanting to put in the 5.0 if its likely to give out soon.

just go to pulla- part get a 350 for 136 bucks and rebuild it, if it even needs it, you might get lucky and find one thats not locked up and just needs a tune up! ;) ! :biggrin: Thats what I plan to do! :cool:

sorry Doe, I just reread your post again...My bad :( ....Then I think I would stick with the 4100 in that case...Although I don't really like the 4100, yours is rebuilt and if it has 0 miles on it and really rebuilt, I would stick with it especially if you had bad experiences with a 5.0...I would only replace a rebuilt 4100 by a 5.7 or Lt1, 368, 350 or a 305...

thats the same way i feal, but i plan to keep the car a long time. So if it will be worth it to have the newer drivetrain i will do it.

I already have a good 93 350 motor and trans, but it needs rebuilt. So i am either going to use the 4100 or 307 since both are good. I just want it to run good and add a little chrome. Im not looking to go full custom under the hood like you. :biggrin:

Your gonna end up doing it anyway bro, :biggrin: Especially if your gonna keep it for a while! Im just being practical Doe! :cool: What will happen is that you will build the car nicer than you anticapatied and then want to chrome the shit out of the engine for brownie points to blend it in with the rest of the hard work!! :biggrin: :cheesy:

so it not just the whole frame is the whole chassis?
yea thats what i mean. Leaving the entire motor, chasis, wiring etc. Putting it on the coupe with the new computer and dash so it all works together perfectly.
