yes very nice. Are you reusing the pistons? Or did you get new from him as well. Also What was the price for the ket from him? If you don't mind me asking...

I have a set of '94 pistons and rods out of my black '94. The '94/'95 sc's had full floating wrist pin connecting rods, the car ran fine when I tore it down for my performance build and I replaced them with Scat forged 6.200" rods and Wiseco forged 30 over pistons, that combo cost me $1000, I'll let the stock piston/rods combo go for $60.

94/95 have a higher compression ratio, 8.5 to 1 as compared to 8.2 to 1.

motor is back from performance unlimited:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:


first, took 6 weeks for a week long job, promised to order parts, waited a month to tell us he couldnt get them, f***ed up my cam bearings from dave dalky and said they were wrong, which they wernt. pick everything up. block is as dirty as before and was supposedly diped and magnafluxed. dumb!@# sand blasted my heads and when i got the heads outta the truck sand fell outta the head on my arm.
and to add to it he lost two main cap bolts.

moral: never go to performance unlimited.
