dick here is a quote on another thread from dunc. seems he has a non or poorly running 307.

"Based on the valve covers, mine is definitely pre 86. The block is a p.o.s 283. Crank is 327. So the motor is a sucky 307. Heads are refurbished. I have a 901 xmssn, which I plan to upgrade with heavier duty axles. I figure the xmssn will be good for 330hp with the heavier axles. So the plan is to just get a crate motor. My concern all along has been about any mods that must be done to the replacement engine before installing it. I will stay in contact. Thanks again for the help. Dunc "



Yea, I saw that Jim. I couldn't tell if he just didn't like any 307s (and 283s apparently) for some reason or if his was in need of replacement. ALL 307s have the 283 bore and the 327 stroke.

I was also unsure of why he needed the Renegade instructions if it was just a 1/1 exchange of one SBC for another.

If that's all it is...a 350 to replace a 307....should be pretty simple.


Actually that sums up the situation. The 307 doesn't have enough grunt. It runs ok, but I think that a 327 or 350 is the better alternative. I haven't heard anybody say that any mods to the engine are necessary, so I assume it is a straight swap out. By the way, I never heard a $ amount for the 283. Did I miss something?

With that said, this conversation seems more in line with the Garage Forum, so as any more questions occur, I will start a thread on that forum.


Thanks, Dunc.

I have a rebuilt 283 with tons of goodies in it. Estimating 320 ish HP. I have been repeatedly told the 283 is an excellent engine for an SBC swap. Higher revving, less torque. I just bought an LS1 and Boxster S trans. Do you have need of any Renegade kit parts. I have the full kit an Kaboodle plus the engine if you do.


Hi Gearup,

Thanks for the post.

What is your price for the motor? How long since it ran? and what's its location.

Dunc


Sorry Dunc. Didn’t mean to ignore you. Been slammed. I literally have everything. I am going to use the cooling system and that’s about it. I have the full renegade SBC kit with mounting for AC as well (I have the compressor new in box from them as well) Plus I have:

Rebuilt 901 with aluminum billet intermediate plate by Brad Mayeur (Never Installed)
Renegade Heavy duty axles (Red) (New in box)
Renegade Heavy Duty Clutch (Full assembly)
Coolant filler neck (not in SBC kit) Renegade

It’s crazy what great parts I have accumulated over the past years.

I also have:

Flipped 915 with low miles and comes with everything needed to mount into your car along with items needed for the engine. Plug and play.

Heavy Duty axles for this as well.
Heavy Duty Chevy Clutch
Heavy duty starter
Trans Mount bracket and mounts
Engine Mounts
Etc etc etc...
Oh and a Patrick Motorsport cable shifter. This 915 was installed and run less than a 1000 miles.

Oh and..... I have 914 5 lug converted front struts and rotors set up for BMW calipers which I have...

The real question is I need to spend some time thinking about pricing.

The 283 is a Fresh rebuild. My mechanic owned a home shop and he did every trick he knew to the heads. Kieth Black Pistons, gapless rings, roller rockers, etc. He was thinking he could get 320 ish HP out of it with normal gas.

Oh and a 914 Rennshifter Used...

I better stop because I will just keep remembering stuff. Biggest question is what do you need?

Brett

Holy Mackeral!!! Thanks for your response.

So, think about pricing for:
1. the motor
2. heavy duty axles for the 901
3. struts and BMW calipers.

Dunc.
