Ford and Chevy both offer race program EFI V8 motors in the $3K-$7K range, including complete engine management packages. These are plug-and-play solutions designed for hot-rodding & they are compatible with any rolling chassis that you can physically shoehorn them into. Complications are minimal, but emissions legality is questionable.tomlavelle said:You can take a lower cost, low-tech approach and buy a brand-new Chevy pushrod crate motor with >400hp for less than $5000. Check out Sallee Chevrolet's website (Oregon). An injected LS6 5.7 liter from the 2004 Corvette goes for $7400. $10K gets you a 630hp, 605 lb/ft 8.2 liter big block.
I'd better shut up now before I'm shown the door and directed to another forum.
