I figured I should put some pictures of the setup I am running.
[Original Post Detail]
So I recently did a compression test since my 05 FXT was consuming about a qt of oil every 500 miles or so.
Here are the results (completed within 30 min of shutdown)
3---134 psi 4---125 psi
1---129 psi 2---121 psi
Unfortunately I was not able to run a leak down test because I couldn't find a socket for the crank. But from the compression test, it looks like its time for a rebuild. Let me know what everyone one else thinks.
My plan so far for the motor is:
Manley 8.5:1 99.75 Pistons
Manley H Rods or Eagle H Rods (Not Sure Yet)
King Race Bearings
ARP Head Studs
I am also looking to convert to top feed injectors. Im looking at the Five-O Black Ops 1400cc injectors.
The car is a DD and am looking for about 425-450 WHP on 93. So I plan on running tighter clearances since the car will only see a spirited pull here and there.
I'm thinking around 0.0028" for the PW clearance and I'm not sure for the rod and main clearances yet.
Anything I'm missing?
