Very cool... I miss the days when stock cars were "stock cars" to begin with. Today they look like suppositories with headlights painted on them!

Alum bock , which appears to be standard deck height, cylinder heads are almost twice as tall as a product head. Manifold is built with intergral plenum cover and open intake runners same as much later LS engines.

Would really like to see photos of it installed in car presented for pre race inspection!

This is one of my favorite engine pictures, because it's the crate engine going in my rod. It's not that it looks all that great, it's what it means to my project!

Fresh engine..

That is the best part, my favorite...breaking in a cam and then idling it back down, goose bumps the whole time, makes for an awesome day, well after especially.

Here's a neat one. It's a Maybach VL-2 V-12, 2014 cdi, 520 hp, gasoline or a propane type gas engine. What did it and it's four other brothers power? Why the Graf Zeppelin of course!

I don't think it run's backwards,, I think they sell a cam to do that..I would think you would lose some of the power too... I could be wrong,, But I don't think it run's backwards... I thought about doing something like this in my c-cab build..
