    I have heard of guys doing 265, 283, 292’s but any one ever try a 305ci V6? I daily drive one now and will be picking up another spare in about a week or so. Low revving, high torque, but also bulletproof. Wondering if I find someone to balance the crank if it would be worth an eBay efi and turbo.

    I have a 87 Monte Carlo LS with what I believe to be an HO 305. The reason why I'm not sure is because it's made of so many different car's parts. Not sure if the engine is stock but the head's casting was 081 so I assume it's an HO. From research I found that it's an LG4 which was machined for...

    I have a V8 trike that has a 1981 Chevy 305 engine in it. It has Zoomie headers on it, but they are too loud. I found a set of headers for a great price, but I am not sure if they would work properly. Attached is a picture of the heads with a gasket for the new headers. My question: will these...

    It was this winter, a dark and stormy night in the deep valleys of Norway, I came across it. It was resting in a shed when I found it, covered in decades of dust and cold spider webs. With a resistant squeal the hood was opened, and an engine carefully crafted by the loyal lackeys of Louis...
