Thanks guys. The reason I'm asking about the V8 is because my current engine is pushing 150,000 and feeling avery bit of it. I thought to spend a lot of money on an engine swap rather than spend a LOT of money on a new ride. So the GTO engine is out of the question? Well, having a mini corvette heart under the hood was just speculation from a guy who doesn't know much, lol. So, just for craps and giggles, how much power can I add with mods to my mostly stock SC engine, and how would it compare to a N* or to my dream 6.0 GTO/Vette engine?

At 150K my motor (same as yours) feels great and happy.

Do a major tune up.
NGK TR55 plugs
AC Delco or Belden wires
Pull off throttle body and clean..(you'll be surprised)
Get a 3.4 pulley for the supercharger
Gut the air box and put a panel K&N in there..

It'll feel fresh and ready to take on anything.

Or wait a little til I have tax money for bills and I can again spend it on a car instead

depends on how much $$$ you want to spend....there is a 00 SSEi that has over 425HP and is looking to hit 11'* in the quarter mile this year, and its his daily driver....anything is possible....but with some minor mods its possible to make some good numbers

Is that the one from Intense? Looks like they spent mad money on that car. And didn't they put a turbo in there?

Oh, yes. Good 'ol Todd. I had the pleasure of getting my a$$ whipped by him at the Rockford, IL meet a couple of years ago, lol. My sign-on here was 'SOLID' back then. What does his car rank now?
