NO! Your car is a year older than mine, and MUST NOT be faster.


Do an L27 swap.

That wouldn't be supercharged, and way to much money for a motor with those kind of miles. Thanks though

Check www.car-part.com for a low mileage Series I L67. It is a database of salvage yards all over North America (US and Canada).

Good luck,
Martin

Forgot to say that if you go to a salvage yard near you that is a member of www.car-part.com you could see if they'd mind you having the motor shipped to them (for a couple reasons).
Reason #1 being the cheaper cost of shipping to a business

Reason #2 The yard can unload the palletized engine from the delivery truck with their forklift

Reason #3 if you don't want the pallet you can just leave it at the salvage yard.

I actually found a couple within driving distance. One right by Will in Albany. Even if I just get a good longblock that I can rebuild I'll be happy, so long as the price is right.
