Hell, kid you paid your dues, and thank you for your patience.

If you're really into speed, google Artie AArfons and "Spirit of America".

Now getting a jet engine from an airlines junkyard is going to be a little tricky, but you'll never have to worry about your differential ratio EVER again...

Uhm, could always change it to a V8... go big or go home... haha.. 4.3L use the same 350 rebuild kits. I like the idea of a turbo tho, maybe a twin?
