Well, I wouldn't want it if it were the detuned version. RWD? Over rated. Sure its great at the strip. But just because everyone on 290 drives like they're in a race, don't make it a race track.

I'd rather have a limited slip diff, and keep it FWD for the traction advantage in snow and such. To be honest with you, I don't think the V8 has anything to offer that would make it worth the swap. DOHC or multivalve heads would be cool, but I kinda like the L67. Its got more than enough potential for me.
