    Are you going to asseamble the short block or are you going to let a machiene shop do that part?

    Are you worried that you bought pistons before knowing what the blocks bore will be machiened to?

    What do you plan on for fueling? Just a pump uograde then tee ut off from the HPFP or are you going full on return setup with a fpr?

    I will be assembling it all , I have watched a ton of videos on it and as long as stuff is in spec it doesn't really look to hard. This is part of the adventure.

    I am not worried, the block I bought was a stock motor that spun a rod bearing and the walls all look great. If worse for worse I could sell them and come out even. I plan to have the block bored out to 88 and decked

    I have not fully decided on fueling yet. I would either like to go with Aeromotive 325 Stealth in tank and T it to the PI rail. My other option would be to put a 2.5 gallon cell where the battery is and just fill it with straight corn. This would require me to move the battery but that is not a big deal. I would not have to do mixing if I did that which is nice but also a lot more custom work. Either way I will be using PTFE lines as they seem like the best bet for e85 and secure nicely. If I do the in tank pump I will be also doing a flex fuel sensor so I can see what my mix is.

    Updates: Took the starter off and found the rod peaking its head out. It took a little chunk out of the starter too.

    Thread title is misleading; OP has not yet had to sell his children to fund this project.
