    Feeling like an absolute wangster when a kid in a 20 year old BMW has a nicer LS motor then you... Priceless!
    Was it an LSx or a old pontiac motor?

      I think he had a 454 big block or something. Paolo knows, he checked out the guy's bay.

          Yeah it looked like a v8 and I called it a fiero cause I think they're funny.

          He literally drove by once real slow, turned around and started talking to us. I had to see what he thought of Joel's car.

            Did he see Joels engine bay? Haha. Those old Poncho big blocks were pretty asthmatic in stock form. Not much to brag about

              They made a bunch of power before 73 or so when they had emissions requirements. a v8 from 73-95 is just sad by today's standards

                        Saw a super clean is today with a CCA grille badge in Bremerton. Red, I coulda swore it was R3V'er.. but middle aged woman driving it :P

                        Anyways got lots done today, car should be running tomorrow. Few more things to do and we have to diagnose a metal on metal screch noise coming for the flex plate area

                        My old injector wiring I did failed so I made this extra long harness... that way I cna move the injector rail out of the way if I need to. SUPER JDM :)

                          I hope that works. Good job on getting the motor in.

                            I buttjointed every connection then heatshrinked it all... I did the pull test on every wire and they all held on super strong

                            Should be fine

                                While possible, the amount of effort involved in going from a BOP motor to a chev motor doesn't really make it worth it. Especially in the big cube behemoths like that.

                                Not like that would stop most rednecks, however.
