life with my new rebuilt M10


Recommended Posts

All I can say is WOW what I was missing. I had been runing an old M10, had tons of blowby, etc etc. I bet I was lucky to be getting 90hp from it. Well fast forward to a 9.5 comp, 284 cammed, rebuild. Every part in the head is new. Only thing I used from the old motor was the block, crank, rods, head casting. Had a very well recommended machine shop build it. They build enduro racing motors for a living. Got the motor in, eyeballed the timing, hit the key...vrmmmm..fired right up.

After waiting on my driveshaft another week I finally had my first day of all day driving yesterday. 200 miles of hauling ass. I just can not believe the gobs of power the motor has. I so easily can hit 90 in 5th (I was running a 4 speed and swapped to a 5 when I did the motor build) on the freeway, press the gas pedal and you feel it pulling hard for more speed!

Just like a completely different car.

thanks so very much to everyone that answered my questions and gave me advise during my build. You guys helped make this a very easy build.
