    Say NO to Rock Auto.

    I still don't understand how someone couldn't hear that happen. From the look of it you would have heard it coming a mile away. Again people should turn the radio down sometimes.

    opionions on a repower

    If you need more power then I would go with the CADDY motor. In my opinion the best towing gas motor ever built was the 472/500 inch CADDY motor. If you want something simple you could swap the intake on your buddies 454 to a q-jet manifold and have a fresher motor.
