And thanks Matt, looks like he put a V-8 in his, I would like to see if a quad 4 would work with my trans or just change the bell H. What do you guys think?

Hey, Trav. Yeah that truck has an LT1 V8, but I can't remember what trans. I'm also unsure what his suspension setup is. I'll see if I can find some info on it.

What might be pretty sweet is a 2.0L supercharged Ecotec engine from a Cobalt SS. I'm almost certain they have the same flywheel bolt pattern as the old iron duke fours.

But on second thought, I don't think a turbo/supercharged motor would work all that well in a parking lot racer, too much lag time.

I always thought that, as well, Trav. The turbo cars were doing rather well at some of the autoX's I've been to. I think it just depends on how big your turbo is. The Cobalt SS has almost no turbo lag because it's a small turbo, so it doesn't need alot of time to build boost. Also, some of the early Cobalt SS cars had Magnuson superchargers instead of turbos. No lag at all in a supercharger.

I've met him, he's a good guy and would probably forgive him.
