It's all about the wow factor. I know in my head that it makes sense to do the whole LS deal, but they just don't have the soul an old motor has. You can't really compare apples to apples. I want a lumpy idle and enough power to shred the tires if the mood strikes. My performance side always creeps in and takes over. I ned to just have a race car for that purpose and the rest just need to be drivers, cool drivers of course.
