Then again some people are just retarded and will never learn.
This is exactly why im not buying some already built car. You dont earn the right to drive just buying some ones junk and throwin a crate motor in it.

I think 632Mantis nailed it.....Theoretical Speculation Overload.....
I enjoy following along on a build-in-progress. The young man who installed the SBC in the front of the VW sedan with the radiator in the rear is an excellent example.....lots of photos and a clear plan....

Learning so i can get my plan together is speculation overload? A.D.D. Much? Consider this thread abandoned.

Ken, you've had every question- no matter how simple or challenging- answered by at least one person and in many cases by several. We take the time out of our lives to help people like you, and this is what you give in return? And all because a couple guys are 'over it' for whatever reason?? I mean, this thread has been going on for a good while now- 10 pages and counting!

But in any event if this shows your ability to handle anything that doesn't go exactly your way, you might be better off not trying to build a race car in the first place. Because I guarantee you- as far as aggravations go, you ain't seen NOTHING yet!!!

Yes its true many have helped. Its just unfourtunate that a few people can ruin the tone of the whole thread by dissmissing it as a waste of time speaking in theory because there isnt a pictire of a car or motor...YET.

If a persons over something then they should stop typing or obviously they arent over it. Its a losing battle to try and keep a thread on track once immaturity has taken over unfourtunatly. Ive learned this over the years using many many forums. When behind the safety of a computer screen some say what they wish they could say in real lufe that ends with a knuckle sandwich. So ill say thanks to the ones who did help and step out.

It has nothing to do with my commotment or drive to complete my project. More so im cutting out to maintain my focus and not get caught up in the good ole internet BS.

Im sure ill post new threads in the future. Perhaps with more specific topics to keep it simple.

If ya wanted to keep it simple... Get yourself the S10 put a good diff in it.
Install your warmed up SBC leaving the juice off for now and just go have fun.

We did a s10 for my buddy with a pretty tame motor and he'd run 13.50's all day long and he had a blast.

The motor was actually a pretty good fit.
