So you are going to have a used Viggen motor just lying around? 8)
The original motor - blew a piston, but cylinder bore looks good. This engine will go through a rebuild(forged pistons), goal is 330hp at the wheels.

I bought a used Viggen motor (12k mi) that included a tranny and turbo(now I have spares). I'm dropping that motor in the car in the meantime so I can drive the car and have a backup when I blow something else up.

Are you going to change the compression at all on the new pistons?
