First we need to know where you are hearing it from. I am guessing engine, but please clarify.

If it is the engine, you need to listen while it is parked. Open the hood and bring bring up the rpm's while looking at the engine. Try to determine whether the noise is coming from the valve cover or the block. If it's the valve cover, pull it off and check all the rockers. If it is the block, then it's gonna be more than I can explain in a post... it could be piston slap or worse. Basically, you would need to rebuild the motor.

Well, that sucks.
You will have to remove the head, but I am afraid the problem could be major.
Look for a valve that may have broken and may be bouncing around in there. This could damage the head, piston and the cylinder.

Next could be a piston skirt that has cracked off. That would cause the piston to tilt as it moves up and down and that will damage the cylinder, piston (of course) and possibly the valves depending on how twisted it got.

And the last thing I can think of could be a rod or rod bearing cap that has broken. Could cause a window in the side of the block.

Best thing to do would be to pull the head first, and then possibly the motor if the damage isn't evident. Be forwarned, it could get expensive, and if you don't have any experiance in motor rebuilding then it may take awhile...
Good luck.

There is another option that (I can assure you) will put some power back under the hood... I did it with the Stalker Project a few years ago.



Depending on the kit you get it can be a bit more pricey, but heck... you almost double the horses.

Billjohn I Went To The Website BUT As Far As A Price For The Rebuild KIT All It Will Say Is That There Is A $300 Core Charge . I Have Gone To The Site Many Times But No Price.they Price Out Other Kits But Not The Hi -po Kit.i was also wondering were to get a aluminum cylinder head or is the stock cylinder aluminum or cast .

You may have to give them a call. It has been a couple years now since they delivered ours. The stock block and head are cast aluminum.
