    Most of the cost is putting as much modern tech into it as I can. Multi-point Fuel injection with sequential injection capability, around $4600. Roller Cam, $1,000. Front Breaks, around another grand. Gear vendor, about 2k. Trans controller for 4l80e, around 1.5K if I remember right. Aluminum heads, about 2.4K. etc,etc.

    I'm basically taking as modern as I can and putting it into a pre-emissions package just to see what the end results will be.

    I have explained in considerable detail why there is nothing absurd about it. Go ahead and declare yourself the winner, though, if it would cause you self-esteem problems to do otherwise.

    Citation, please.

    Wouldn’t take long to have to at 170mph (249 feet per second), considering it would take you 650 feet to stop.

    I have not said or implied anything at all like this.

    I think 20-35 is appropriate for most urban roads. I have not given much thought to the limit for rural roads and interstates. I do not recall the 1970s interstate limit of 55 (hardly enforced as far as I ever saw) being all that much of a bother, and I made one North Carolina to Texas round trip at a fairly honest 55.

    I have not given much thought to it.

    Save some money and find a good running 5.3 LS motor. Plug and play with tremendous aftermarket support.
    Why would you need a GearVenors overdrive for an over drive transmisson?

    5.3? Don't you mean an 8.1. Depending on state or where inspected, vehicle must meet EPA emissions standard for year of manufacture of the body/frame or engine block, whichever is newer. Do you know how expensive and difficult it is to do an exorcism of the demon EPA from a car?

    Gear splitting and double overdrive for higher speeds.

    No offense, but I am so over the clone fad. Rock the Malibu scripts or whatever it came with and leave it alone.

    8.1 is a 496 ci truck motor. Good choice if you want to run a big block on the cheap though. Just little harder to find. Come in alot of motor homes.
    There are plenty of 5.3s out there running in the 10s in heavy cars though.

    On the books, just not generally enforced. But then, the liberals haven't had any real power in the state for almost 20 years now, but that may be changing.
