    Hey everybody I,m the new hillbilly on the block, I,m looking to build a 27 track-t, my 10 yr old son is almost as excited as i am.
    was wondering if any of you have any thoughts about an engine that would be small to fit the frame but still allow for some hp... i thought maybe a 289 ford what do you all think?

  7. Welcome from Arkansas. A 4 cylinder can be made to put out some serious H.P., hook it to a 5 speed and you'll have a fun little "T" and it won't break the bank...
