Opinions/Info on '88 305 TPI motor
I have this 305 that I pulled out of an '88 IROC with 58k miles on it. It is a stock TPI motor and was wondering about some opinions on what is in this from the factory.
I want to put it in my '87 Choo Choo el Camino and want it peppy but over bearig otherwise I have a 406 for that.
The numbers on it are:
block casting is 14093627 dated E258
head castings are 14101081 dated E148
Intake casting is 10086016
crank casting is 14088526
no numbers on the cam but is a roller.
I broke down the motor last weekend and an looking for a nice rebuild kit (rings, rod & main bearings, gasket set, timing set, cam, and roller lifters).
Don't want to build it up much but was wondering about the Corvette aluminum heads for this. I have come across some 14101128 castings heads. Anyone have any info on these?
