I'd have one of every body style, if my wallet would let me. I'm kinda working on that, one beat up vehicle at a time. I'd still need a Fox body, a pushrod-powered SN95 in addition to the '97 GT I...

It's a 6.8L out of a van that's a little over a year old. It was torn down because that's what we're required to do whenever a customer brings in a vehicle for warranty service on a major component....

ha! You Win!!!

As for "not buying zero compression," how does a piston with no rings generate compression?
