Put lbs of sand on the hood and drive it - that is how your GT will handle with a Chevy cast iron V8 in it Originally Posted by Snakes Thank you for your consideration. You'll need to stop the body twist too, unless you like popping windshields out every time you mash the accelerator.

    You'll need to tube the chassis, upgrade the brakes so you can actually stop the beast, and also a whole new rear end is a must. The Opel ones just cant take the power. Arguing online is the same as racing in the Special Olympics; no matter who wins, you're both still retarded.

    But i was wondering if there was anyway to make the frame stronger without replacing it with a tubed frame? Ron 72 GT 3. I have to tell you, I would not worry about putting a V8 in my chassis, which is the original frame and floor and tunnel and firewall, all very radically stiffened by rollcage galore rising up out of my unpatented Speedway Rocker Panels. The front suspension and rear end would certainly need some help, but I'd bet my bottom dollar that my car could handle horsepower easily!

    Course this is getting into a rather spendy little wet dream here, but I didn't see this thread start with the usual "how much is" baloney. I just have always liked that motor. Have seen some neat stuff done with them. Have two of them in my own little collection of bizarre junk.

    One was in my S10 for a while, but then that idea got changed to cubic inches Last edited by jeff denton; at I agree to agree As long as horsepower and torque are kept reasonable. Never saw one "pop out a windshield'. Using aluminum heads and light weight components, i would bet you could get the weight of the small block close enough to the 1.

    RowdyGT, I've got a 75 monza with a factory installed in it, and you would not believe the extra bracing the factory did to make the body survive the extra torque it puts out over the stock I-4 engine.

    Things like extra steel panels in the rear wheel well, braces welded in from the frame to the front sheetmetal and a very longish torque arm from the differential to the tranny, just to name a few. The body weighs about lbs more than the stock I-4 body, and that doesn't include the suspension upgrades to handle the extra engine weight.
