"Recession Buster" build?
Hey guys, I have the chance to pick up a complete Lincoln MKVIII for dirt cheap. I thought about swapping in the entire engine, but it sounds like more work than I want to deal with, and would be making less power than my full bolt on 2V. Then someone suggested I do a Recession Buster build, using the 4v aluminum block and internals with my 2v heads, cams, and intake. It'd bump my CR to around 11:1 and it sounds like I'd be around 330rwhp. I'd also be losing 85lbs ditching the iron block.
The swap seems pretty easy, with 1 hole needing drilled for a coolant passage in the new block. Has anyone ever done this, or know anyone that has? My main concern is if I need to notch pistons or degree them in afterwards.
