You will not only have to buy a motor you will need a different transmission. I went from a 273 to a 318 to a 340. If you do it right you can get about 350-400 hp out of that 318 and people would make fun of you untill you roasted them on the track. Joel
You say that you have to change the ENTIRE transmission??? Wow I thought sure somebody made parts for Mopars......
