Re: Chevy power
Bob correctly states:

without tossing a LOT of $$ at it.<
For the most part, I am with you here. I think what I
have written has been misunderstood. I will try one more time.
The GM V8 is *only* worth the hassle if you want [need?] the additional power. Should you put it in a
S6 that has 30,000 miles that you want to sell in 6 months? hell no. I do believe though it is a fantastic
alternative for the guy driving the 10vt series of sedans / wagons that wants 325+hp / 380 ft lb of torque, on a relative budget. Can you get that power from the 10vt? sure. where in the powerband and for how much is what I ask. You will not get the
torque where you see it in the V8, if you can match at all.
Btw, I have seen SB chebs run 250,000+ with complete ease. It is in the maint.
