:cool: Hey,
My Coupe Deville is HEAVY AS SHIT....almost 5000 pounds all told and the engine is kinda crappy. Any Ideas on how to get more power out of the engine or any ideas on a good engine for a swap that has tons more power than the 7.0L (180HP O-60 11seconds) ???????????? I know someone already posted similiar so sorry but any ideas. Thanks!!!

if your car is 5000 pounds, youll need a whole lot more that 160 hp to haul that shit rite. 0-60 in 11 seconds is not good even if tis not a race car. you need more low end tourque . that will give you more of a push when once you leave a red light. if your low end tourqe is really bad it can seriously fuck with your mileage per gallon. if you dont wont to overhaul or take the engine out you can just put a performance camshaft in it . you see insant results and you could gain up to 15 HP

yea, it has 180 hp.... but about 350 lb ft of torque :uh:


thats great, he'll put a cam in it and lose and torque he had (unless its a towing cam or something)
