    actually... thats what i wanted to to to my saturn back in 2004 (so part of me wasn't joking when i said a GM crate motor..).. my junior year of high school. Then i realized that i wouldn't be able to realize that dream unless i had enough money to take the saturn off the road and make it a project.


    i think i will just never realize that dream haha

        As far as potential swaps go, a Carburated SBC would theoretically be one of the easier...

        Running the engine would be a snap. The harder part would be shoe-horning it in. The knuckles would need to be swapped and the bearings filled with a retainer of some sort, Rack moved forward, Firewall and Exhaust tunnel would need to be cut and replaced with a dog house and trans tunnel. Custom drive shaft, and shortened down solid rear (Unless you'd want to explore the potential swap-ability of the Nissan 240 IRS rear on on chassis). Then mounts, plumbing and odds and ends.

        (Just off the top of my head)

        SBC's have been stuck in smaller and odder things...

          well an SBC would be nice! but my car is running great now so if i EVER wanna do a swap it would be much later (my compression is 200, 190, 180, 180 so its doing well )

          speaking of swaps... best swap i've seen in a long time:

          okay back to topic... my sig tells the truth about the thread hijacking haha


          and by the way, my thought process was that it would be easier to build a custom frame that i can put the body of my SC2 on it haha

            I threw my red 1995 SC2 up on craigslist when I still had it last year. ONE person sent me a message on it. It was that guy....obviously we didn't work a deal out, still thought it was hilarious though.

Pressures and stresses of all kinds thermal and mechanical loading across the board escalate to extreme levels. A Chevrolet 5.7-liter LS1 V8 with this much specific power (horsepower per cubic inch) would be making 2,137 hp
