Brand New Rebuilt Lt1 355/Lt4

This engine is still at the machine shop. Its done now and ready to go. I was going to use it for an RX7 swap project but lost interest in the project and sold-off everything else after this rebuild was paid for. The engine is at Chesterfield Engines at 24 and Gratiot (Chesterfield Township, MI) and will come with their 2-year 100,000 mile warranty.

The engine is out of a 95 z28. I bought it as a "running good when pulled" for my swap, but I did a compression test on the engine stand and the #5 cylinder was low on compression. It turned out that it was just a bad valve seal (and some very light scuffs on the cylinder wall), but it was already apart so I went with a full rebuild. The engine was bored .030 over to a 355 cu inch. Square decked, new bearings, pistons, and the crank just needed a polish. Heads were cleaned up, full valve job, GMPP Lt4 hot cam kit ($800) and a true roller timing chain. ARP hardware. The intake just got a nice red powder coat with polished fins. The compression will be a smidge higher than stock. I have new SVO red top injectors and AS&M 52 mm throttle body to go with it. The fuel rail is mirror polished. They left the heads natural aluminum color, but gave them a clear coat to keep them nice looking.

I have $3600 into this (with receipts) and everything is paid for. The new owner can pick it up or have it delivered in metro Detroit by the shop (delivery is already paid for). The owner and his son support this sale and will answer any questions too and transfer the warranty. I'd like to get $2250 back out of this but I'm open to offers. If I don't sell it soon they are going to deliver it to my house, but the 2 year clock for the warranty will start.

Text me or call between 9am and 9 pm or email anytime. [email protected] 586-930-2ate71

No dyno. I was going to get it dyno tuned once I got it in the car.

I also forgot to mention than I have the waterpump, optispark, ICM, balancer, and other tid bits at home that will go with it.

Does it have forged pistons and ARP rod bolts?

Does it have forged pistons and were the rods resized with ARP rod bolts?

The pistons are hypereutectic "flat top" and the rod bolts are factory style replacements. The head bolts are ARP. I told the shop what I would be doing with the engine (90% street) with rpm's not going all that high (~6000) and along with my cam choice; they did the rest. I wanted to go more $$ on some forged internals but they actually talked me off the ledge based on what I was doing with it.
