dads stroked/turbo'ed 331 has been havin issues. threw off the timing gear, blah blah blah. pulled the heads to see 5 bent valves, one broke valve stickin out of a hole in the piston BACKWARDS. the valve was upside down with the flat part UP. afr 185's are shot. and he wont let me build my motor (which im waitin for him to say i can; i have EVERYTHING i need) until his is runnin right. im ~~~~. his motor is ~~~~. and to make it worse my car is drinkin over a quart of oil a week and i really need to get my s/c motor in.

Having issues is putting it mildly. Sounds like scrap metal now. Sorry to hear that...Unfortunately like with any engine. Stroking them takes some reliability away. Did the camshaft timing gear shear?
