why not put in a stroked 5 litre, they bolt straight in and you can built a tough motor for less than the gen3 and blow its doors off!!

ye dont go down the gen3 path unless ur like fully loaded... but if u were fully loaded ud buy a diff car that already had it..
haha.. one of my friends was very serious about goin down that path til she realised how much it was gonna cost her.. i forget how much she said itd be.. but it was a hell of a lot of money for an upgrade!!

A decent L67 will cost about 6-7K with trans... if you're lucky you might get the larger tank and fuel pump too. Ideally look for one out of a VS2 Calais or VS Stato.. at least you know all the mounts etc are going to be spot on.

i cant see it costing that much when your looking at a couple grand more for the car itself

A dismantler bought my wreck, engine alone was listed for $6k. I bought the entire car for $9k, so yeh the L67 goes for a pretty penny.

not true...I can snatch up a good one for $2,500 but then again could be because I got connections through my dad...hehe...:yeah: but still no...I think anyone if they looked hard enough and know what they are talking about when asking for this stuff...could pick one up for dramatically less than that...Im thinking $3,500...
