+1... If your not a chevy fan, which would be the most likely or obvious alterative, what else would you stick in there?? A 350-400 Olds would work, but why? Since you mentioned gas mileage why not just stick with a smaller Pontiac and a 5 speed. Edelbrock or "ELDENBROCK" (as some guys call them) alum. heads if you can afford them, Performer intake and a PROPERLY rebuilt q-jet with the right cam and it would have some power but not eat you out of house and home.
