I do like many of Chevy's small and and (some) large block engines... You CAN do a LOT with them.I think there are four engines that can be built entirely from aftermarket parts: SBC, BBC, Mopar Hemi, and VW bug. Are there others?NeilI don't know about building entirely from aftermarket products...I haven't seen too many aftermarket blocks, though I have seen seasoned blueprinted blocks. I have seen some heads and a number of connecting rods, pistons, rocker arms and a LOT of intake manifolds, camshafts and exhaust headers, along with tweaked computers, fuel pumps and air intake systems.Chrysler's 318, 340 and 360 small-block engines have a reasonable amount of aftermarket products available. Their 383 was a good engine that had a reasonable amount of aftermarket products available.Ford's small block 289/301 is probably one of its most versatile engines (though they also produced some very decent large block engines) - but Ford is not known for standardizing parts... The difference between Ford's and GM's standardization in manufacturing reminds me of the difference between Remington and Winchester in firearms.There are even a lot of alternatives and things you can do with a Nissan Z car http://www.geocities.com/zgarage2001/engine.html
