My project 545 engine build.
Starting a 460/545 stroker motor. The block I have is an early 90s efi motor with E7TE heads.
I have done some reading, so I have a few inclinations as to how the E7TE heads are regarded, but here it goes.
So far my first step is to have the block cleaned and inspected then bored .030 over.
1st off: The main caps are missing. From what I gather, the way this would be resolved is to use another set and line bore the mains oversized? What about shaving a bit off the height of the mains (.005?) Then doing a cleanup cut on them to true them up?
Secondly: The intention of this motor is a truck motor. Multiport full sequential EFI (looking at a mega squirt setup.) Will the E7TE heads work for a motor intended to spend most of it's time on the street with moderate rpm? Maybe with a small increase in valve size? Porting the exhaust a bit and port matching the intake? Any input would be appreciated before I decide to put work into heads that arent worth the effort?
Lastly any general input on what things I should consider?
I appreciate any advice, while I have some machine experience, I'm pretty new to engine building, and I could use all the advise I can get.
