The majority of the Pontiac V8's you will come across for sale will not be a high performacne version. They will be the base low perf engines, low cr smoggers.
The high perf versions will never get offered for sale cheap unless they are fubared.
So don't expect it.
Think about it. New low mile 400+HP a LS3 out of a wrecked Camaro will be cheaper than a Vintage 400 RAM AIR III RAM AIR IV poncho motor to buy.
Nobody is going to sell these rare motors cheap unless fubared. The last good 400 was 1972. And very rare.
