I am building a new engine for my 93 sub 4x4 and could use some advise. I
purchased a engine out of a 89 van casting number 10054727 and am going to
build it to replace the exisiting engine. My main goal is to get more
pulling power for towing my trailer. I want to get about another 80-100 hp
over stock. I have talked to Summitt and they are telling me I should put
in one of their rebuild kits to bump up the compression to 9.73 to 1 and
then install aluminum heads with 2.02/1.60 valves. They also strongly
reccomend an aftermarket intake.
Anybody out there got better advise? I kind of feel like they are telling
me this just to get me to buy alot of parts not necessarily the best way for
me to go. I will do what they say if I have too its just alot more $$ than
I really want to spend...
Any advise would be appreciated.
