Ok guys here goes, hopefully I won't get booted outta here.

My delima, I have never built a motor, and don't know where to start. The track I run at is big into claiming and once it starts it goes all year. I believe claim is $300, yet at the same time guys have some pretty beefy motors. Rules basically just say 2bbl stock carb, and stock intake, and thats about it.

So this is basically a plea for any HONEST guy out there that is willing to build a motor and sell it to me, or if you have a motor onhand already. I believe the motor I have in my car is basically a 355, as I bought it year ago with the car.

The track is a 1/2 mile, I'm running a 9 inch with 5:67 gears with a bushore tranny.

Anyone interested email me sjakes@mn.rr.com. Only reason I posted this here is you guys sound honest and interested in helping out people.

Also if this helps I am located in Southern Minnesota.
