    I've just been offered a ZT 385 engine, complete with Rousch supercharger! Do you think this would fit in a B? :D

    Wow! Really? :D

    No idea whether it'd fit in a B or not - might be a bit tall? Especially with the SC bolted on top...

    From memory the ZT engine is a ford unit which is rather large and heavy. The chevy LS1 and 6 units are apparently almost the same size as the Rover V8.

    Try looking at this site http://www.chevroletls1.com/index.html

    I thought it probably would be too big (not that I was really considering this mod to my B). The car might be a bit nose heavy, and I'd have to upgrade the brakes and suspension. Some better tyres, to get all that power down on the road would be in order, as well...

    Do you guys get "Practical Performance Car"? It seems the spiritual successor to CCC - it even has Dave Walker writing in it! In the most recent edition I've got it talks about that LS1 mill - in the context of junking the Lotus slant four in preference for it in a S1 Lotus Esprit.

    Madness of course. But really, really, REALLY tempting...

    Ugh - must pinch myself and stop day dreaming!!! :rolleyes:

    None taken.

    It's a bit discouraging though when you spend an age making yourself presentable for the efforts to go unappreciated :D

    Holy cow! :eek:

    One of these engines with supercharger was on eBay a while back for considerably less than that!
