    The article sucked!!!

    The article didn't explain anything. It said basically take it to a shop and have it done or you are insane to try it yourself. All they do is tell all of the negative problems with putting in a V-8 and only talk about LT1 and LS1 swaps. I hate the way HOT ROD and other "high end" publications have shunned the general gearhead population by condemning the carburetor.

    If you don't believe me that the article sucks giant donkeyy choad, pick up the mag at a book store and read it.

    I am really pissed and almost want to cancel my subsription to HR - "almost" hehe

    Have fun swapping a Fuel Injected one. That would be a bitch and a half.
    Just think.
    A carburator with a couple fuel lines and throttle linkage.
    Or an entire EFI system?

    have fun...
    Not to metion all of the eltronical bs that goes with it.
    I know it can be done
    but its a bitch
