Oh hears a pretty cool project. I know of a company that you can buy a kit from that lets yoou drop in a Grand National engine into a Chevette. You may be wondering tat the car would blow up with that much power but you have to swap axles and rearend to make it last.

The funny thing is that these types of swaps are common and extreamly reliable, (our motto is we can do anything with enough weld beads.. )

It's quite common to take the 2.0L engine out of a CRV and put it into a CRX or civic.

Hey James, I really dont think you should rebuild the 305. The 305 was a smogger engine. I would just go down to the junk yard and get a old 350 out of some Caprice, rebuild it and drop it in your Firebird.


Ok, first off, I know that. but you gotta realize the power inherant in a 305 is the same as a Ford 302. No one does up 305's. I like to be unique. I want to have the 305 with 400 horse. For now, I setlle for the 350 horse i'll get out of it after I go to Kentucky. but after I get the money, the bottom end is coming out too. Im gonna stroke it with a 400 crank. and I know I can, I have seen all the numbers.

To Advisor: Hell yeah man, I'm down. where you from? and bro, screw flying far, far away...my bird is more like a roadrunner...just takes off and keeps going. Fast. and that's WITH a stock 305 under the hood, trust me, the thing has speed that even I can't explain. its freaky! a consipricy, I tell you! lol

To my fearless leader, Fury: Dude, I still only like Nissans, lol.

what i really wanna do is drop a 350 in an old nissan 280z .. it's called a scarab conversion,
I was made late 70's early 80's and drasticly improves the handling characteristics of the car, plus add's hp.

Nissan Xterra for me. It has that tough look, but at the same time has the sporty look!

Porsche 914. I have/had a 1970 one. Mid-engine roadster, perfectly balanced (great for cornering). Unfortunately, I blew the engine and trans. How do you do that on a 914??? Porsche pureists will tell you it is really a Volkswagon. Hey, I don't care! I also have a 6 cylindar VW Jetta. That car moves.

Small, light weight cars, cannot go wrong! BTW, Porsche 914-6's (using 911 engines) GT won Le Mans. My ideal car is a Pantera de Tomoso, powered by Ford? Of course, I don't have US$70k to blow on a car...

Nissan Skyline GT-R V-SPEC II (R34J)

If you add/replace several parts this car can reach over 900 horsepower(NO NITRIOUS(sp))

Too bad it has to be imported

Those are actually quite collectable, unlike the Porsche 914.

I blew the engine in mine coming back from a gold prospecting trip and sold it. I am sorry now that I did. I cried for weeks. I went to some amazing places in Colorado, and Arizona in that Scout. I took the top off right after I got it and left it off. People used to look at me funny in Colorado driving thru a blizzard in an open cockpit 4wd. When I got to Arizona I took the doors off as well. One day I will have another one. I love cars that you can work on anywhere you have a toolbox. No smog bull#, no computer bull#. I could stand between the side of the engine and the fender wall.

I too like small cars. I own a volkswagen Golf 1997. Unlike some of you, I only own one car, and I didn't really had the opportunity to choose, I'm not rich, my previous car broke and I had a deal, so..

But at least, you can park almost anywhere with that ! lol

Cool. My buddy had a Golf of about the same year. It had an 8-cylindar engine. That car moved.

Another of my cars is an old Mercury Grand Marquis. When I get on the expressway, people try to go around me, figuring I am about 70 years old. Then I punch the gas and they all look silly. I hate the car because it is so big, though. I am always afraid of sideswiping parked cars.
