Default re-building the camaro motor/tranny

motor blew up last weekend because the block cracked or something of that nature, we still cannot find the leak, but it threw oil all over the engine compartment, under the car, and covered the headers. So we pulled the motor yesterday, got a new 283 for it, (well not new lol) but kinda new. Its got roller rockers, gear drive, and vett 350 heads on it. so today we are replacing all the bearings, and everything else in the 283 and completely re doing the turbo 350 tranny because it needed new everything also. ill post some pics in a few days, hopefully we get it finished tonight.

my guess the leak would be where the big hole is in the oil pan or the side of the block
