At that price you aren't far from roller territory. The car has a rebuildable core. Many rollers do not. If you want to spend your hours messing with something and have a decent little driver/toy at...

Bottom feeding is a lost art. Cash and steely eye with a good line of trash talk will do it.

I'm not a buyer, just a complainer. I see maybe 2-3 hours of competent labor written up there, and they were either charged massive amount per hour, or someone padded the hell out of the job.

Man, I didn't even consider that, but you are xactly right. The fwy revs on the M96 are way high for a V8 Chebby. Another blown idea. Oh well.

This being the defining statement vis-a-vis the 996. If I knew a shop that would do the Chebby conversion for a reasonable fee, I'd be in the market. I am NOT going back to an M96 engine.
