74 Vette L48 ,2 bolt,piece of crap low CR, but burned out, chirps when shifts, doesn't glue you to the seat when accelerating,gets 25mpg.I drove it until everything went,then I sold it for almost what I paid new.
76 4 bolt truck motor ,487 heads, low CR,with my cam ,intake,headers,I'm saying it should run stronger,A 3:08 isn't that much dif than a 2:73 is it?
The truck motor doesn't pull, doubt it will burn and gets 15mpg and it should be the better motor.
The way it is here,I can't find a SBC in a wrecker.I found a camaros LS motor and trany for $6500 at a wrecker last week.If my motors dying ,it's gotta go.My cheapest opition is my friends motor,but with 10:1, I don't think I want it.A fresh build will be $5000 for a sbc.I'd like a cheaper solution.(dreamer)
My car sat at a hot rod shop for 2 1/2 years.I dragged it home,stripped it back to frame,re-did almost all the shops work in 4 months.I have some body issues and glass to replace,then I'll paint it myself.Once that's done I will not want to take it apart.The other issue is what do I paint on it.I raise pedigree cats(truth,see below).Do you think I'd get thumbs up for flaming cats on the fenders?
