You'll really have garage envy if we can get my brothers garage built and I sneak it into there.
Thanks

If you research the companies that rebuild them it is kinda of a crap shoot.  For the money to swap it over you can have the Olds done and at least an Olds came with the car so it is somewhat correct.

I think I will have about 4-5 in the olds.  Then I need to get a bell housing for the trans to mate to it =$500.  That 4-5k is not forged internals, but should still run well.
It just boils down to what will work the best.
