Wish I could have been at the 2015 SEMA Show Mercury Racing show booth to hear the comments about transplanting a Corvette LS7 with DOHC 4 valves per cyl SBC into a CUDA. Probably needed a security guard in the booth to keep the haters peaceful. Obviously it was a publicity stunt.

"Obviously it was a publicity stunt"  Why? The LS series engines are now much more popular than the original Gen 1 sbcs' and make a ton of horsepower AND, being Chevys, everybody and their brother make speed parts for them, which accordingly, makes them cheaper and more available. I'm a Mopar guy, but you can't argue with success and bang for the buck. For what it's worth, there's a few LS powered Mustangs out there and the Ford purists all fall down in slathering fits when they see them. Different strokes........    :cheers:

Completely agree with Jimy there in concept but not in application; that said I will state publicly that if your name is not on the title its just an opinion and while you are entitled to it, thats all it is.
