The 250 is a good motor, but HP/cost you would be better of swapping to a V8.

250's can run pretty decent.. cost a lot to go really high hp numbers.. there's a 250 Camaro I'v seen on the internet. '68 I belive, somthing like 899 hp but it's not even close to streetable, and has $$$$$$$$$$$ invested into custom parts.... but getting 300 hp out of a 250 or a 292 isn't out of the question, and that's enough to make a '66 C10 fairly quick

The 250 has too many structural problems, you may get 1200 hp out of one with a blower of some sort, but not without spending a fortune getting there. If you must have an I6, the 292 is a better platform to come off of, especially in the corners of the head it's less likely to bust, blowing all the coolant out when working hard.

But time for a reality check, planting a V8 in there is a lot less hassle, requiring a lot less knowledge and ability and will provide more power for a lot longer life at less money.

Don't let these esoteric inlne 6 articles fool you, they make it sound like getting a lot of power out of the Chevy, or Ford for that matter, inline 6 is pretty simple, trust me it isn't. On the other hand, doing it will teach you a lot about engines and part fabrication.

I6's are anything but simple.. they are a very simple engine, but because of the lack of performance parts for them, you gotta know how to figure stuff out, theres no 'build articles' for them.. The article I wrote on Ford 144-250 I6's in the Wiki is based on my experience... no real fabrication except for the turbocharger, but I had to figure everything out, and spend hours on dyno software, choosing cams, figuring out compression ratios, boost ratios.. my whole build was calculated with matching parts b4 it was built... cost was over $6k and I never did finish it.
