You Chevy guys crack me up. Last time I was by a Chevy dealership and the garage door was open, to much of my surprise after listening to this affordable reliable Chevy talk, there were mechanics in there working on........well.....Chevies. They all break, they all need something and they all are at the end of the day......just combustion engines. It comes to familiarity of brands. The worn out thing of "if you want to go fast, you have to have a chevy" is tiresome. Hell, right now there are some really scary import stuff out there running around that would eat our lunch and still have plenty of gas to drive home on. I'm not bashing anyone here, I just get tired of hearing how hard it is to make power out of a ford and chevies make it basically just for having a bowtie on it. I will agree with people saying about pullies and the like on fords but no one can actually say that doesn't happen on other brands. Last I checked there was a short and long water pump with associated pullies to correspond with a Chevrolet engine. And....for the record....the fastest car I was in to date was my brothers 69 SS/RS Camaro. Happy assembly on your decision. I think an FE would have fit in there nicely and would have been an already done thing with the Factory falcons of the 60's running the 427 in 64 and on.
