Congrats.
I wonder, how Ultima big inch engines hold up in Arizona heat?
I hate to get stuck in traffic even with my 127 here, in NJ during summer.

I probably overreact, but when it's 90 degrees or more, i prefer to run my 96" or 113"

Looks like a similar frame to mine. I used the 113 Ultima and no complaints. The battery compartment is very small so it can be a challenge getting this thing started once the battery is more than a few months old. I wrote a detailed blog about my adventure so you may find some useful information there as well as from build threads on this forum.

Honestly anything from the 113 up will make plenty of power. I like the 113 because it has a longer warranty but I havent seen major problems with the Ultimas usually minor things if any. I just had a 127 with low or no oil pressure right after start up. They sent my customer all the parts to fix it. The 140 has 0 waranty. The 140 is a little taller than the 127. (just under 1/2"). The tightest spot will be the rear rocker box.



Once you decide on an engine you will need a primary or belt drive to link the engine to the tranny. RSD trannys are scarce sometimes so you should grab one when you see one. Ultima has just got a bunch in they we out for over 6 months before these came in.

I can hook you up if you need anything from parts to just bouncing ideas or fitment questions off me. Just shoot me a PM here or an email using the link below.

The frame looks like a decent frame. Do you know who built it? You should have an MSO with that info. You will need the MSO to title it in most states. AZ I think is the most lenient for builders.
