    That one looks pretty sick .
     
  11. Well I'm a LYB fan, but If you want to put a Y block in go with a 292/312 for several reasons.
    1. Easy to find
    2. Tons of aftermarket parts, heads, intakes
    3. Smaller in physical size, easier to install

    can't post a pic here but my 30 coupe is running a 292, keep the stock firewall and stretched the frame 7 1/2 inches and works real good.

    I flipped through it tonight and nothing jumped out at me... Is there a car or article you are referring to?

    I did find (what appears to be) a good Y-block build-up article in the Nov. 2008 Hot Rod Deluxe mag.
