All of my porting pics are here on this forum. Exhaust manifolds, lower intake manifold, SC, and TB porting. Very detailed.

Besides the fact that you have to do a lot more modifications to your car to get it to fit in, I've ridden in a 383 powered fiero before and just didn't like the feel. I do agree most other people will recognize the rumble of a v8 and be more impressed, but I'm doing this swap for me. Really my two choices right now are a 3.4 DOHC or the s1 sc 3800 i have out back. If this S1'* bottom end does turn out to be trashed, then I'll have to take another stab at finding an engine. Also, I have been in contact with DrJay through e-mails, he seems like a good guy that knows his stuff. And lastly, what'* the largest amount of dyno-proven hp/tq a s1 sc engine has made?

Dyno proven? None.

But there'* a couple cars around here in the 300-350 range probably.
Why are we talking about horsepower, anyway?

The Series 1 L67 is a torque monster. That'* what you should go after, let the hp fall wherever it does.
