I was serious when I said truck motor. The 5.3 lsx iirc is from chevy trucks, makes all of ~200whp, and has an iron block. They are great for boosting though.

Of course correct me if I'm wrong, i may be on some or all of the above.

I'm not worried about it... sounds cool, seems quick-ish.

I was just expecting more, no worries.
