OK guys, I know I have been asking a lot of questions lately, and I thank you all for the help. This project is going well, but I still hit the wall sometimes. My latest "wall" is dealing with the new engine. I have spent the last 2 weeks reading forums, blogs, reviews, etc, as to what my engine should be.
Heres my problem, it had a stock L28E in it. I could buy a rebuilt L28E for about $600, while the average rebuild kit is between $6-700, so it seems more cost effective to just buy the rebuilt one. Second, if I want to increase performance and power I could go L28ET for about $2800. Thats for a rebuilt one shipped to my house. Lastly, I have been toying with the V8 conversion idea. I have seen some really nice V8's but is it worth it over the L28ET. For roughly the same price am I just "spinning my wheels", no pun intended. This is where I defer to you all for some input.
