    Thats what I mean about people cant take a joke. I know you're being funny. He dont seem to though.

    some people just get all hyped up. especially because they are hiding behind a computer screen, so they think they can be jacka$$e$. sometimes i just like to sit back and watch

I have seen the posts and it has been a long time. who knows if it will ever be done. now let think about the fact that 500hp is not that much, your looking at a max of 450wrhp. Before my FAST 92/92, my GMMG no-cat back, and my SFC's i was making 397RWHP. now i prob right around 420WRHP. so im 30-40hp away from that v-6 with 450, and guess what im N/A. i have ported LS6 head and a 230/230 vodoo cam, lt's, ory,and a bunch of suspension crap. No turbos or superchargers. The point i was trying to make is that yes your V-6 can be fast and beat a V-8, but now that he has a turboed v-6 what else can he do? hes tapped out. ya maybe N20 but how stable would that really be? one last question, how many 1000+hp v-6's have you seen. there is a reason top fuel cars use v-8's

    Now let me say this. This is in no way me trying to be an A$$, i am just trying to clarify my point. Thanks
    Yes I am still building it, but with a CNC/fabrication shop, construction company and 4 kids (also internet sales) I get to work on it about once a month.

    Also have side projects going on...

    12 second 1994 Chevy Corsica (11's the goal this year)

    Twin turbo 350 1992 Camaro (swaping from a single turbo 6er)

    86 BMW 325e GM OBD1 ECM swap, 885 head swap, turbo

    98 F150 n/a goodies, new motor rebuild

    94 Camaro 3.4/3500 OBD1 swap, dyno ported and unported heads, tubular k and a arms etc

    95 Camaro full 3500 swap, custom accy mounts, forged everything, balanced/knifed crank, boost etc etc 8000rpm rev limit

    No doubt the v8 is starting with more power, but IMO it's cheaper to turbo (and more fun) if you have the patience and are resourceful. Once you start playing with boost it becomes very addictive. We have a lot of good builds going on in the v6 world this season, and I will not be the least surprised if there are several 10 and less time slips.

    Oh hey this was nothing against you at all. I have been checking in on your project every so often, looks interesting. i was just making the point that yes it is in the works, but its not done yet so who knows how much power and how fast it will be. Also another thing to consider is the cost and time spent. How expensive will this project be and how much time do you have invested? Do you have any idea when it might be done? i am interested to see what it will run. Thanks

    But they make torque. What 60 degree does that?

    but see thats whats nice about have more power, you dont have to worry to much about weight....

    Look at the hondas, they rip out their entire interoir and remove their AC and still only run 13's (i know there are some fast ones, so please dont tell me "well some hondas are fast). they im next to them running 12's with my AC on and im watching fast and the furious on my flip out TV.

    So the fact that the engine i just ordered weights 50-70lbs more than my old one......... doesnt really bother me
