Lightbulb New engine for me!!

Well, i need a new engine :( To just get another stock V8 seems like a waste of money to me and in i modfy it then there goes the warranty. I have decided to just get a pre prepared worked engine. I can a modified 302 from Eagle that will proguce about 215kw but i was thinking of gettin a bit more serious and goin the Herrod Motorsport 5.7 litre 300kw engine :) Anyone know if this will fit straight in to my engine bay. (EB fairmont) I think its just a stroked 302. There site doesnt say anything about the early model falcons only the AU. I have emailed them but the slackers havnt sent a response!

Thanks

Do you need a new engine because it was blowing a bit of oil out the dipstick? Was it quite serious?

Well i went to 2 places both trusted mechanics and friends and yep i need a rebuild. The warranty wont cover it either wich p@#$$d me off and the rebuild could prove to be rather expensive and a new motor will cost me 2 - 3 grand. I couldnt touch that motor for 3 years because id void the warranty. So why not just got nuts in the first place. At the moment, im just getting ideas and wondering where im gunna get all the cash. Its not like the car is going to die in the arse but it will only get worse. Ill probly just endup rebuilding it myself and going nuts but i cant for the time being because im moving in with my girlfrined soon and i dont want to have to shift it 1/2 done since i would be taking my time.

If oil is blowing out of your dipstick etc apparantly it means your piston rings are f#cked and the gases from the explosions are blowing down past your rings into your sump and making oil fly everywhere, etc.

We don't know what the problem is 'cause he hasn't told us.

oops i guess i havnt said exactly whats wrong. Yes theres oil spewin out the dipstick, the engine now isnt breathing properly. If i have the engine running and put my hand where the oil cap goes theres no suction so the air is gettin in somewhere else Most likely the rings, or so im told.
