    There is a 328 motor on EBAY that lists as having 348 custom machined cylinders and pistons..

    Don't know the answer to your question, but I am interested also. You are probably aware of the 4.0L project that is being done on a 308 by one of the Fchat sponsors, so I would presume that this approach would work on the 328.

    My question is this - does the 328 engine go in a 308 series car without a ton of mods?

    yes and no--it will not work with the 308 ignition and injection--but if you go to EFI it works fine--just have to machine .050 off of crank pulley to line it up with the waterpump. it bolts up the same and even uses mostly the same gaskets

    Thanks, to be sure - so the 328 engine bolts up to a 308 gear case? Also, any reason why the 328 couldn't be converted to a carbed engine?

    I emailed the seller with questions and he did not respond.

    This is so weird. A friend and I were talking about doing the samething about a year ago. Even before Nick. We were very close to doing the project but finding the time to consintrate on it prooved difficult.

    Russ T. (Snj5) converted his Mondial 3.2 to carbs with impressive results (280 at the rear wheels?) after some serious dyno sessions and jetting exercises.

    my enigine builder buys his liners from one sorce and the pistons are from whoever the customer wants. liners are mfg by few companies and differ only in composition.

    to re-sleave a block the bore is opened up and then the block is heated while the sleave is chilled, the sleave gets dropped in and imediatly heats up and the interference fit causes the two to be affixed, the top protuding is milled down to match the deck. in some cases (open web deck) they will machine a thread into the bore and match it with the liner so that it is screwed in.

    if anybody is interested i can give you the info on my guy, he's in fountain valley off the 405. does stricktly engines no R&R. lots of racing motors. my little 429 is now a 512 heheheh.
