    Hey guys I know this ones gonna stir the pot a bit but we are committed to showing the real deal. We had no idea that this was a built motor and the vehicle was bought that way from the previous owner who had no idea. BTW putting aftermarket pistons in a 2.8 and matching seems more expensive than just putting in a 4.3. This motor was never running strong enough (bc of fueling issues) and to our knowledge it was 330k old to ever think otherwise and blowing it up seemed to be a great idea!! Please understand that all of our vehicles will be used to give veterans and first responders the rides of their lives in our unique projects!

    Those short stroke 60 degree v6 engines had the same 4.4" bore spacing as the SBC and LS motors. GM even made a 4 bolt aluminum block used only by racing teams. Over 4 grand in the 90's!!!!! They were revving to 9500 making 500hp in circle track racing. The LQ4 3.4L from 91-97 is a DOHC variant detuned to be manageable in fwd and for the transmissions that were weak. The 96-97 have the best DOHC port designs found in Grand Prix GXP, Z34 Monte Carlo etc. It would be super sweet to take one and add splayed mains then sleeve it for 4" bore and the tiny 3.3" stroke. Port the heads and fab an intake. Throw on twin turbskies and smolder some eco pukes at 11,000 rpm. Its 110% possible with modern ecu and turbos. Winberg crank and BME AL YOU MINNIE MMM rods. Just something to think about as the only substitute for displacement is RPM. Pro Stocks make 1500hp N.A. in a 500ci/8.2L engine. No forced induction! How do they do it? They spin a 3.6 inch stroke crank at 11,500-12,000 rpm. That same motor would be over 3000hp with 20 pounds of boost. New rods every 2 or 3 passes, but not with a 3.3 stroke and 4" pistons, good for maybe 10-20 passes if you spin it to 12k. Just saying, nobody is doing it. Everyone is turning 7k with stroker combos, every youtuber under the sun. It would be sweet to see something different and everyone loves a 10,000rpm dyno run :)

    The intake being part of the head is a Ford FE series engine design too. The FE 360 390 427 and 428 engines are all like that

    Oh yeah the 3 wire oil pressure sending unit use to cost around $80 so save it if you're gonna keep the gauge cluster.

    Never understood why people send YouTubers who don't need the help gifts.

    My conclusion is the main event leading to failure was the lose of oil pressure. Unfortunately you didn't look for the reason why oil pressure failed. Here is what we know. 1. Speed pro pistons means engine was rebuilt. Mileage unknown. 2. Rebuilt blocks are bored and decked so deck clearance is unknown. Rod stretch is a guess because rod bearing material lose can lead to piston to head interference. Only way to know was to measure center to center the rods. 3. What we learned. 2 bolt mains and cast cranks are stronger than we thought. Money best spent on up graded oil pump drive rods, oil pumps, pistons, rods, fasteners.

    I think your challenge should be putting that 2.8 back together and make 200HP.

    Best kind to help out a gutless 2.8L. Had a 92 Camaro with a 3.1 and it wasn't much better on the power side of the equation.

    You should at least recycle that s@$t. That was an aluminum intake. 8$ at the scrapyard
