    What would be the best Horse power up grades I could put on this engine?

    Asked by: 2020
    This engine makes good HP out of the box at 430 hp. you can change the cam and put a freeflow exhaust system on it to gain slightly more power.

    I have a 93 caprice classic, will this motor fit in it & can I use the stock trans or will I have to replace it? 

    Asked by: Evo21
    This engine is made for the 1986 an older applications. You will need a 1 piece rear main seal engine to keep your original drivetrain.

    Looking at this engine to drop into a 65 Malibu Chevelle will i have any issues with the oil pan, and what would i need to do for transmission. Thanks

    Asked by: Tayl
    Tayl, there should not be an issue when installing this engine into your Chevelle, but if you would have to change the oil pan to fit your application that will not void or hurt warranty in any way. We just would not be able to warranty the new oil pan that you install on the engine.

    I have a 94 chevy Silverado 4x4 would this work in it

    Asked by: Gary30
    Gary, this engine is obviously carbureted so your factory computer would not work with this engine but it will for sure fit in your application.

    Will it fit in my 1989 Pontiac formula firebird fuel injection do I need to have carnation changed to fuel injection

    Asked by: Rick 89
    Currently the only way that we will build this engine is with a 750cfm carburetor, and the camshaft that we have in the engine reflects that as well. Our cam would not be compatible with your factory fuel injection.
