    Can I get some volunteers? 2 or 3 should do it... This topic would be so much better if we were able to list them by motor... I'll go through and find all the Ford/Lincoln/Mercury motors listed and put them in order By CI on the first page. If I could get some people for the other manufacturers to group them in a similar manner and post them here or PM them to me I will then Edit the Original Post with all the details

    The point of this thread was to post Kits that we could get good quality 1/25 and 1/24 motors from. Basically this is all about knowing where you can find certain motors etc..

    Ford Based Stock Car Engines?
    Do they exist? What CI is the motor based on? Would the intake be compatible with 302CI or 351 CI ford engine from other models? I have looked for a Ford Stock car engine but only seem to be able to find GM and Dodge Based engines...

    Engine sources
    Was thinking we could get an engine source list going. The idea is to post actual Models that are worth their price just for the engines. Some resin engine kits can be pricey and sometimes cost even more then an entire model. What kits are a good option for a hot motor with good detail? This could help other modelers like me that have been out of the scene for a while... Whenever a new suggestion is posted I will update the list

    One model I have found to fit the drag racing type builds is the 'Revell' "1955 Jukebox Ford" kit. You can build the motor as either the Ford or Chevy version ( has 2 different intake manifolds) and the detail and fit and finish of the engine impressed me..

    Listed kits - the engine

    (1) Revell '55 Jukebox Ford - Dual Carb BBF or BBC

    (2) '39 Wagon Rod - Chevrolet LT5, double-overhead cammer.

    (45) AMT's Allison V12 - excellent aircraft V12 engine that is found in their 'drag racing parts pack', as a much earlier Parts Pack for the engine only, and in their Allison-engined Thunderbird drag car)

    Congrats on getting your answer.. Not to steal the thread, but what motor is in these kits and is it of good quality?
  13. RadialDragon added a post in a topic Carburetor Detail   

  14. RadialDragon added a post in a topic What kit has these Corvette Rallies in it?   

    This is what I immediately thought of.. +1
  15. RadialDragon added a post in a topic Need source for small turbo   

    I have Both the Stealth and the Berreta GTU which also has a small turbo kit.. Maybe you have something I want? LOL

    As far as the Berreta is concerned I have the entire kit. The only thing that was ever takin from the box was the body and it was only primed... The tree with the turbo is still sealed.. Here are pictures..

    Oh YEAH!! American Muscle !!

    Box art of engine (Turbo position)

    The turbo itself..

    Whole kit

    Now for the stealth LOL.. I must have attacked this kit when I was a kid because random parts are colored, parts are missing and so is the body lol. However This kit was "Twin Turbo" and both turbo's are connected to the parts tree still...

    Hope this helps.. If your going the Stealth route both turbo's seem to be decent detail quality and there are two per kit. However the Beretta Turbo IMO is a little better detail but is chromed... Good luck in your search ! !
