Zora Arkus Duntov. Not sure if he invented the SBC, but he was involved in development of the Corvette. Legend has it, it is his curse that will insure we will never see a Corvette powered by anything other than a V-8.

I think that th rest of drivetrain is strong enough. If you have experiance please advice but I have seen some Lands whith 4.6 engines from R.R. and about 250HP whithout facing any problem (Gear box LT85).

No you say stock and factory... Try being more specific next time.

Yah, SBC and stock axles... Good idea there.... I'm sure it will be fine going to the mall.

Just to clarify Dawg. So you do not run and tell your sister I'm a hater. (It could ruin our plans for tonight) Pendy is not a Greek hater.

The only thing I hold against the Greeks is their lack of fire safety skills. If they had not let the parthenon burn I would be rockcrawling in a hovercraft by now. That and the Caligulus thing.

Nervous as a center on a Greek football team.
