That's what I was afraid of, thanks for the input. I don't have the spare time to dig into and deal with all the things I'd have to change. The stock configuration is plenty powerful enough for...

Thanks for the input. As I'm prepping the engine for removal I guess I'll pull the heads and have them checked out. If I could find a small block I knew I could count on, it would save some cash....
