    You can do it cheaper, but I was going to go a bit nuts with it. I've had friends that put 350's in for about 500 bucks.

    yeah, key parts involved when doing it less than 500 bucks... carburation.. i will not have a small block in my truck unless it is fuel injected.

    Call some of your local junk yards. It's surprising what shows up in them some times. You might find a good donor car with everything you need cheap.

    With me it wasn't imports (or ricers). There wasn't any such thing back in the 70's unless it was a 240/60/80Z. Plenty of 1st Gen Camaro's for cheap to play with though.

    <------BTW: That's my correct age.

    i have also heard that you can drop the s10 body on a corvette frame that has been shortened about 6 inches... whether this works or not? i dontknow

    but i found an ls1 block in the classifieds of a local forum for 1600 bucks... it is missing an intake manifold, oil pan, wiring, throttle body, and all sensors...

    is it worth it? it does not include a tranny either

    Easy is a relative term my friend.

    I wouldn't call custom fabrication of motor mounts, wiring, and the entire drivetrain "pretty easy"

    Then its a pretty good deal. See if he will throw in the transmission for an extra 1k and your in business.

    I have been reading alot of the threads relating to imports and it makes me laugh just how ignorant some of you are concerning imports. First of all there is a big difference betwwen ricers ( people with oversized wings and fart cans that say things like " my car is the shit yo") and true enthuesist.
    Right now i own 92 mr2 turbo that has 260-300whp stock with a boost controller and full 3 in exhaust. i have about $8500 in it. It sounds good, but i will admit it doesnt have that v8 rumble, it looks good, and it will outrun pretty much any stock domestic car in a straight line ( except a c6 z06, a c5 z06 is a really close race-pretty much river dependent, and i have only raced 1 ws-6 and beat him pretty bad but i think the driver was a tool) and it will own on a road coarse well now that i have pissed every1 off with my 1st post im going go

    well, i admit, you can make an import fast and quick, but not many people do this... they focus more on how it sounds and looks...

    yeah i did go for looks when i first got my truck... i also thought there would be more performance upgrades available for it too... i was wrong, so i went for all show no go, now i am balancing that out, so on you... lol, sorry for the rant
