    For those of us watching our nickels and dimes.......

    When somebody talks about scrapping that old 318.......

    Tell 'em you'll haul it off......

    While it may never make a gazillion horsepower, done right, it might just really embarass somebody.:icon_redface:

    A SS/ 318 motor goes for 10-15K. Might want to rethink this.

    Feel Better Now?

    I'm well aware of what both a S/S and Stock eliminator motor can cost.

    I posted that photo just to generate a smartass comment. Here, this should make you feel better.

    Yeah and the 180 "Rated" hp is a crock of crap, and the secrets run very deep. (as does the actual horsepower no's)

    There was a thread on a class racer board where Chevy guys were lamenting about being hit with horsepower refactors for the new season. There were increases of 3, 7 and 11 horsepower.

    An F-body 360 racer told them to quit complaining: He'd gotten whacked with 35!

    They may be on to us.......SSHHHHHH.

    There's nothing more satisfying than pissing off 350 Chevy racers. GT 80 Volare.jpg

    Yep and a record holder too. This passed week a turbo slant notch back Barracuda ran a 9.62 at the meet at Mason Dixon Raceway in Maryland. Speaking of 'Teen,, I would take a 318 over a 360 anyday. Just fond of that ol' teen.
