My STD engine. 250-300hp 603, $3.5k
Engine is still in car. Moving into 606 realm and need to fund my sickness.
head runs 80C year round, I have seen it up to 90C at 3rd gear WOT ~18psi doing some hill climbing in the appalachians. I've been runnign this car as my DD now for almost 3years, it is solid as a rock (no chevy jokes). One of the cylinders is a bit low on compression, it runs a little rough in winter until it warms up before I get to the end of the driveway. We saw single digits this winter and last and it always starts on first glow.
IP is a Diesel Mekken 125cc pump with normal ALDA adjustment, the ALDA not only controls smoke but max HP. Euro manifold with a low mileage HX30W. Will consider some offers but the pump is worth $1500 alone, the HX30W was new when I bought it. Intake manifold is modified to take 3" intercooler piping from the drivers side.
This was made for a manual trans, I have no idea what it would take to get it working with an automatic again.
