Default Re: Unorthodox 8ba

A certain high financed team had an idea to gut a flathead block completely out. Then place an LS block inside to compete in the vintage engine classes. That was immediately shoot down by the power in charge. Reason I mention this has to do with what Pete wrote there would be no competition and the cost would cause poverty quickly.
