How long do you read and study?

Again,Thanx for the site it has been really helpful and informed me of whar I need to know.
should be more than what you have.

a lot.

by READING. since you don't do this(because you THINK your special), you haved missed that your question has been answered 1000 times allready. so people of KNOWLEDGE, such as myself, get tierd of replying to those same questions.

sorry i gave you that www. sometimes i hate trying to help.

now. go ask about your CIA's, TBS's, tornados, and cat backs. me, i have to go pull my trans(that still works). so "I" can build it into a 4L70E to handle the well over 400hp my 4.3 is putting out.

btw, have a crappy day

I dont know if you wanted to go this far, but I think a little larger cam than stock would make a noticeable difference.

fullsizechevy.com, full of "highly trained very important chevy master"s ?

BuWaHahahahahahahaaaaaaa. that job goes to this web site.
though there are a few KNOWLEDGABLE guys over there.


my little V6, as you put it in your PM to me. will stomp anything you ever have. and i love stomping many V8's that are around my area (suburban chicago, not podunk alaska). just makes it that much sweeter. anybody can build a V8, big deal.


i am finished talking with you. you are ignorant. and after all this, you took the advise that you bashed me for

his PM to me.

I was in search of a quick easy answer to a goal with a still emission and ease of install ,not a full blown rebuild with super trick parts. SO IF YOU GOT YOUR FEELINGS HURT I don`t really care ,so go **** your self, you spent all the time and effort money on a little V6,had the same same efforts been done to a V8 then you might have something, V6 only get you a weight savings in a little truck. A midget with muscles!
this is what i get for helping

I did not bash you for the site you directed me to,it was for assuming that I was wasting people`s time and board space. That is a great site just like this one ,but how you answered me was a little short,I would have never bashed your efforts till you threw rocks at me in your third post. I never even made mention of your town either, Alaska is a great place to live but it is not for everyone.Also I am a very different type of person hardly ignornant at all.

I`m no modd but hey PM`s mean Private Messages so lets keep them to ourselves and just help each other hummm...?

With ever changing tech and new toys and gagets I came into this post to see if anything new in the way of parts or idea`s was on the block...? Boy did I get a surprise...?

Also everyone has their own idea about hotrodding so live and let live k...


Billz428... I think there are some different cams out there now but of course spring changes will have to be done also... Exhaust is a big help too with good headers and system to match... A programer will only do so much to those engines but with other add on`s it will be needed for sure...
