Wanted Complete 360LA engine, No rush

Post by TIB3300 »

Good moring all :thumbright:

You may have seen I am on with putting a 318 in a cortina. :roll:

Well I quite fancy a 360la now, once I have the car up and running, I will be looking to build a nice 360.

Iam in no rush, just putting the feelers out incase anyone is thinking of selling one?

Looking for a compete engine that you know has a good/ usable crank and block, I don't mind if it needs a rebore, just as long as its within tolerances . I would proffer a engine from a manual vehicle?

Please PM me with what you have thanks

Again in no rush , I will just keep bumping the post every 3/4 months or so :read2:

save up for a 390 stroker kit for the 318. a useable 360 will cost 1/2 to 3/4 what the stroker kit costs and you still have to rebuild it. with the stroker you get a new crank, new rods and new pistons/rings so only need your block. 40 thou overbore and it's a 392, a majic mopar number from the early hemis. 500hp is easy with readily available ally heads which you'd probably get for the 360 anyway. it's worth looking into.

Hello Gasser
I have been looking at stroker kits :thumbright:
But a stroked 360 comes out at 410 = 6.7 :lol:

but the stroker kits for both are almost the same price and you still have to source an expensive 360 core. you can get a 318 core for between nothing and £200 on ebay. and the like. and it's only 18cu ins difference after all (392 vs 410).
