95 S10, 306/C6.. easier than i thought it would be to do this swap.. fits under the hood better than a sbc in my opinion.. most of the work is finished, just needs some odds and ends like new plug wires and such, along with a new carb, taller valve covers to clear my rockers and a front sump pan.. but here's everything that's been done so far, from start to semi-finished.. after xmas, it's getting a turbo, exploder 8.8 with 4.10's and a powertrax lock right

motor specs are:
- bored .030
- KB FHR pistons
- summit stage 2 forged rods
- eagle crank
- general kinetic GK30 cam (for now, getting changed when boost setup goes on)
- crane lifters
- ported GT40P's and manifolds
- stainless valve, std size
- crane valve springs (lucky find in the junkyard, were in the box in the bed box of an F150)
- parker funnel web intake
- holley 770 (changing to edelbrock 650)
- HEI distributor (no clue on brand, bought it off ebay.. works amazingly)
- MAC underdrive pullies (not installed yet)

Just tell them that it's a LOT easier to adjust the distributor when it's in front of the block and not behind the block almost smack dab into the friggin' firewall and the windshield!!!

Except that engine building (properly) is a labor intensive industry.  Who do you think does all the measuring and machining?  Little engine shop fairies?  Not to mention assembly, mock up and parts fitting.

At Woody's level you are not just paying for his labor but for his skill set as well.

You get to ONLY have TWO of the following -- cheap, fast, dependable.

IOW -- if it is fast and dependable it will not be cheap.  If it is fast and cheap it won't be dependable.  If it is cheap and dependable it will not be fast!

Obama's "executive immigration decision" = "Wait a minute! This is horrible. Putting all the racist rhetoric aside, we "the government" love illegals! Just not publicly. We "the government" love to exploit cheap labor and have taxpayers subsidize the living expenses of our hard working employees while we pocket the difference. Then come election time we can blame them for being on welfare and get re-elected. And employers don't pay in the taxes they're suppose to so taxpayers and workers get screwed again and we come out sweet."

Thanks FordStrokers 408W, Westminster Performance Transmission (W.P.T.) transmissions, TCS Performance converters, Broader Performance valvebodies and last but not least a BIG thanks (always) to my friends here and abroad in the World!

Ain't that the truth. I have a friend with a SBC S-10. Its a nightmare pulling or installing the distributor in that thing. Hell, just adjusting the timing is a pain in the ass.
