292 Chevy
 
I have an inline 6 cyl 292, and I was wondering what you guys think of those motors. It's sitting in a 69' GMC Pickup with a 4 spd tranny, and a 12 bolt posi rear. I'm in the middle of restoring it and I was wondering if I should keep it for now, get everything else done and then put the V8 in it..or just keep it for good. It has the non integrated head.

REALLY DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU WANT TO DO I MEAN THE 292 IS A GOOD ENGINE AND A VERY GOOD RESTORED TRUCK BUT AS A PROJECT AND THE NEED FOR SPEED THAT I HAVE A HOT V8 WOULD BE MY CHOICE!. :cool:

The 292 is a great motor for the standard daily driver or original rebuild. It has good low and mid-range power and will do the job. If you plan on anything spectacular such as making a street rod then go V-8. The sixes didn't really do too hot when it came to high rpm's-#6 cylinder tends to blow at continuous high rpm's.

Are you sure it's not the #5 Cyl ?? Cause the past 2 heads I've had for the truck tend to blow at the #5. When I bought the truck it had a blown head. I went and got one from the boneyard, it was blown, all on the #5. So I ordered one from Johnson and Tippton in N. Carolina for 200.00. I didn't think it was a bad deal. I'll be getting it in the next couple weeks here..I'll let you guys know how it works out.
