Yeah, take a cherry picker and pull it out, then put a 350 in it. That ought to tune it up !!!

This topic has been hotly debated before. The consensus is that a steet stock is too heavy for it to work. I have to agree with hughes, you'd be better off with a junkyard 350 or even 305 that hits on all 8. You'd have to build a serious V6 to haul a 3000lb stock car around.

I've got an extra 200 and an extra car, so I think we're gonna play around with it a little. My whole goal is to blow the guts out of the oil pan.

If you go ahead with this, put a ton of gear in it and let us know how it goes. The only way it would work would be to keep the rpm's way up, but then you might grenade it.

You aren't getting any good answers because there are probally very few people that have built them for street stocks. You might want to go to the engine tech section or to the modified area. I wouldn't listen the guys that say to pull it. Everyone runs 350's you might blow the doors off those V8's. Good luck

Same dollars in a V6 versus same dollars in a V8, you're not blowing anyone's doors off with the V6 (if you do, it was probably a pretty crappy car b/c the doors really should be soildly attached).

Another thing, the car would need to be set up to taks advantage of the displaced weight. I'm not saying it wouldn't work, but you're not gonna save any money using it and you're gonna create a lot of work.
