However, they should of made him, if missing or altered, correct the engine for emissions equipment for the year of the block. If putting a Big Block motor into a car that only came with a small block, then any small block should of been fine, not just one from that year model.

    A 350 ci chevy engine is a 350 ci chevy engine. Main differences between some were whether they had 2 bolt or 4 bolt mains, iron block or aluminum. The numbers on the 454 I bought, that series of motors were put in cars, trucks and motorhomes. Someplace like Cali, and maybe Nev, I've never lived there, might say something if you put a Big Block into a car that didn't have that option for that year. The extra weight would affect handling, breaking, safety, lots of things. Big Block was an engine option on the car I'm working on.
    It was a DMV investigator trying to make his life as difficult as posible but according tot he federal, putting a newer engine in an older car is an illegal engine Exchange.

    Even though that newer engine probably has better milage and emissions. Makes no sense.

    Exactly. It made no sense. It was a complete waste of time and money, but that is what the law is or was.

    While this may not longer be the law and obviously only a street-race car, I seem to remember if a car is switched to alcohol it is exempt.

    I wish this had been a multiple choice poll.

    The officers job is to write a ticket for the full speed, arrest the driver for reckless driving.

    The courts job is to rule on the reckless driving and both administer a stiff fine and a license removal for a significant period of time.

    Had something gone wrong with another person somehow getting in the way on the presumably "empty" highway, the charge should be murder 2.

    On a vaguely related note, has anyone noted the reflex-like behavior which drivers display when they see a cop car watching for speeders on a highway?

    Everyone slows down, and usually most of them tap the brakes at least....Even if they were already going the speed limit or slower...

    Yes, I think it is almost an automatic reaction.

    When I was an MP on Camp Pendleton. When ever I pulled some over going that fast I would give them a ticket of wreck-less driving and I would tow and impound there vehicle.
