Default Texas240 was 16v but now LM7 5.3L

I never got around to finishing 8v + t thread but I promised myself this time I would take some decent amount of photos of this build. This Isnt going to be the most exciting build thread or anything knew but its worth a try.

Subject: 1993 245 219+ K miles now the second owner of the car after buying it off of ebay from Pittsburgh.

Im going to be doing a complete rebuild from top to bottom. Starting with a 91 N/A engine from switftjustice44 (Jon) in Garland, TX. Engine in quite good shape as all of the bores still having their factory cross hatching and what not besides an engine completely covered in 21 years of oil. The looks of it was a leak in the front mail seal. The head was in good shape but thats going to be turned into a small coffee table.

Now a few pictures:

The car:




The Engine before breaking it down:



I was in the middle of welding some stuff and my wire spool exploded in my welder so I hanged in the garage and calling it "Art"

Engine being broken down:







And of course, my jew gold scattered about





The Stock Internals:

Im not sure if I want to run these pistons from the looks of the fairly heavy scratches on the skirts:







I will be using all new bearings, rings, and and what nots. Hoping there will be another group buy for H-beam rods from Josh So I could get a little more done before work picks up again for another month.


One of Two heads in the garage, I would have more but a 16v head is like the next one sitting in a garage.

A few other things that will soon to become.

Rear coil overs, Fronts, and RX7 breaks.


Stuff from Coleman racing for the fronts


and the turbo going on the car one of these centuries


Thats it for now. Engine block is going over to Jons Shop to be thrown in the engine washer and to check out the bores for anything unusual.

nothing compared to yours At this moment Im in no rush since the 8v+t is holding up just fine in the cooler weather down south but It would be nice to have to engine half way together by ends month.

I have an intake mani that looks similar to what josh is making. I cant remember who I bought it from but ive had for a year now. I'll get a pic of it today. For exhaust I'll be using the 90+ unless the turbo is to big to fit then i'll make a custom one.

It will be a pleasure to be your 16vt imbedded step brother from another mother

I'd say that it doesn't matter, unless you're planning on getting a set of rods and hoping this will last for a while.. then I'd get frogged pistons too. (yes. frog)

Lookin good! I didn't know you were putting that snail on a 16 valve... Clearance was fine on a 90+ with the 8 valve head, but adding the width of the 16v, along with the adapter, might be kinda tight.

You call that a snail, its more like a tumor on the side of a face... Hopefully by the time the engine is built I'll have sourced some tight schedule 40 bends and have a mani welded up. I could always make a 90º bend on the 90+ and adapt something.

My wallet is the limit.. Ohh wait
