good luck with that, not many out there due to many reason's. I thought about it for about 30 seconds a couple of years ago but slapped myself silly & I'm ok now.

I think the biggest one for most folk's is there's no way to make the car ever pass emission's testing again. on a strert driven car (as most are, if you were going full on race car & were doing this swap IMO if you weren't putting a big block in you'd be :eek:) that & the gauge situation (none of the factory gauge's work without the computer) kill it for anyone I've talked to who thought about it. the second big thing is the car will be worthless when your done so you better like it 'cause you'll never be able to sell it. lastly I think that there's just too much potental in the modular motor for it to be worth it.

what block are you using... I bet its cheaper to build a stronger shortblock for a mod then a push rod based motor

not sure wat block.. the motor is gettin torn down as i speak to check everything stroke valve size so on so forth suppose to be a stroker windsor motor.. i got a sweet deal on it and my mod motor took a **** and its easier to build and tune i think no computer bs to deal with..

dollar for dollar the push rod is allway's gonna be a better bet (as in power for dollar), but there's plenty of issues to outweigh that as stated above (plus many more) :2cents
