    Should I rebuild or replace my 318?

    The rings on my 318 engine are shot (the car smokes from the exhaust), should I replace/rebuild the engine, or replace the engine with a 340 or 360?

    The motor has a new High Volume Oil Pump, High Volume Fuel Pump and a new Cam and lifter set that will fit all 3 engines.

    You know?^^ A couple of months back I started looking at some of the big displacement engines that are out there/ I had no idea that we can buy nearly perfect 426 hemi's etc. Yeah....not cheap but I had no clue there was such a business in these things.

    Are you looking for in-expensive or performance?
