Damn I lost in the first post,
well give me time, I will get there. this all started because my neihbor had 13 batteries to keep charged with all his toys. I wondered what hp you wackos had.
then think about all the gas per year!!!

find out if your coupler is the same as a big block, If so thats no big deal, A couple hours worth of work. I may have one, I will have to check my " stock room" by the way, is the formula a car? if so is that a t-5 unit? I dont know of a t-56
but i might know of someone who has one. why dont you just buy my boat, I redid the engine with all the goodies and will let it go to you for less then wholesale. that means you use it for a year or two and sell it for the same price.
my new work # 386- 763 9008
give me a shout i now have to work all week.
but I am going out in the boat 8 am new years day for about an hour just to say I did. you have to start the new year right!

brauer - that looks like a Lotus V8 in your avatar. If it is, I wanna ride in it. (I buy my gas at Dodge's store - they got cheap gas and good chicken there...especially on SuperTuesday, premium is 6cents off).

cannon, I think a BorgWarner T-56 is the aluminum cased firebird/camaro six-speed stick tranny (the vette uses a ZedF transaxle combo).
