Ok i bought a 9 car because i have been told by numerous people that it is the most cost friendly class to race in? Well how come i cant get my motor done for less than 3000 bucks +/-? I dont have piles of money laying around in my backyard and need some advice on what route to take on getting my motor going and being competitive. I will start with the specs on the motor i do have (bought with the car), all i know is it is a 1641(was running when it was pulled out of the car) and does not have an intake or exhaust, dirty old factory single barrel carb, and single port heads. Who do i call, who has something for sale cheap, or do me and the guys just build a motor in the garage and go racing with the who cares about winning attitude, which would be the cheapest???
