    Funny how he does that


    I know it doesn't sell well, but there are guys like me that like to take a decently big engine and try and squeeze some mpg's out of them.

      I bet long tubes are worth at least 20-25 hp... Dyno testing anything before and after Bruab?
      I thought the rear deck warmer was originally a rear window warmer option on the Yugo for the pushing reasons???

          Brian , your not close to being as cool as half the other things Ive haul in that trunk,
          as I hauled my big block , and the 2 big blocks for my buddies 27 ft boat to Jensens for machine work ! And numerous cases and barrels of beer !
          The trunk of the late 80s caprice was also the choice of the DC sniper, even though they were originally looking for a van.

            I don't know what theme you are going to go for on the outside, or how long you are going to wait to do proper body work and paint but I'll send you one of these if you want Then you would have an excuse to ignore the body work for a long time I haven't had the heart to stick it on the Skylark.

                      The 5.3 turbo thing would be cool but I am going semi-neanderthal man BBC. The semi part comes from the fact that it will have EFI on it.

                      Trying to find a rebuildable used short block now.

                            Here is your big block Brian, fly out, drive home....pull the 454, install the small block and you just made your money back...

                              Joe, your plan is brilliant and awesome, but the big block situation has been sorted out as of about two hours ago.

                              Stay tuned.

                                Lohne's in order to preserve your legendary editorial prowess - you simply have to blow up the small block in some sort of spectacular fashion before installing the gorilla engine.

                                To pull it out for resale or to be used in another BS project would be tolerable, but no where near as much fun to watch.
