    thank you! there is lots of fast 109blocks out there, they just cost 10x the cost of a LS.. I know i had one cost me 14k to go 10.5@ 130mph. 11.5 all day with stock stuff and bolt ons, after that get the wallet open.LOL...I have not weighed it since i did the fiberglass bumpers but i figure it may have dropped 75lbs, with me in it

    Well I just spent somewhere between $15k and $18 for 109 and 200 4R rebuild. I have less than 1000 miles on both. Maybe I can sell them and do an LS Swap or I would even be willing to do a 3800 series 2/3 swap. My engine builder would probably never speak to me again if I did this, he put a lot of his time and effort into getting my car back together and he did a great job. Saying I could sell engine/trans/driveshaft, I would still be highly dependent on other people to build my engine and transmission if I decided to with a different a one.

    Maybe I'll wait a couple of years and pick up a nice roller and then do an LS build. That doesn't mean I can't start collecting parts now.

    I've put about that same $$, maybe a few more, in an 86T/LS.
    Includes roller, pro built engine, w/ good parts, ported heads, etc, 4L80E, Quick 9", Holley Dominator, Alkycontrol, BW S400, custom Autometer dash. Bout 95% ready to start.
