The current engine has a torker, but it's on an Olds 455 that I installed in high school. It has a bent rod, so I'm replacing it with a 350. I would like to keep the Olds, but I can't justify the 9-11 MPG. (My 350 vette will get around 17 mpg cruising at 65) + rebuilding a sbc is waaay cheaper. The Olds also had an overheating issue I just couldn't fix either.
I am going to use the current Olds TH400 though with a Summit adapter
