    Are there any V8 engine "kits" (castings, maybe crank and cams) that exist, and if so where?

    Thanks in advance.

    The closest thing you'll find is a Conley V-8. There's just not a big market for machined engine kits in the form of a V-8. The hours it takes to do it by hand is staggering.

    Thanks. That's pretty much what I figured. I'm looking for a nice display, and haven't been impressed by the die-cast models I've found available.
