i don't think the people who own them are willing to sell them, and even if they did sell their year old cars, what are you going to do with a car with no engine?

I don't know why you would even want that engine in your car? Ya, it makes some serious HP but it gives away torque and as you know our cars are heavy and requre torque to get them moving=cubic inches. Or forced induction

Plus, that engine alone has to cost over $25000?? Also, GM makes a pefectly good indy engine, you know, keep our cars all GM

Seriously, swap in a ATI blown Caddy 4.9 you will have more fun on way less $$
