instead of shaving the head why dont you fill up the combustion chamber over the pistons since you already know it's flat? weld and mill.

Re: oil filter problem

ok, mine looks different than the one in the picture. I was a little disheartened when kanter sent me the wrong spark plugs after explaining that I didn't have the 10mm plugs then the filter didn't fit and my carpet still hasn't shown up after two or three months and a lot of calling and running around. Is kanter a reputable company? I feel like I am paying a premium with them and they have horrible customer service. the parts that I got through them for my 43 dodge pickup were good but expensive! $50 for a bearing? I traded the truck before I had to do that.

Re: A little disappointed

this is my first post on here and this conversation has forced me to respond...

I had a 51 dodge pickup that I was halfway through a turbo setup before I gave in on a trade. I just bought a 49 deluxe touring sedan. this is the first car that I have wanted to restore to stock. of course i will throw some nitrous to it when she's in paint and road worthy but she will have a stock appearance.
don't give up, torquer motors are great with turbos. this motor would sound INCREDIBLE with one of those hybrid turbo and a nicely muffled blow off valve.
I want to know what happens. I have an old volvo turbo that I might want to do something with. what is redline on a straight 288? thanks ~mac
