I've been corresponding with and talking to the engine builder and I think that I am getting closer to knowing what I want. It is looking like a 460 bhp and 450 ft lb of torque 5.7 litre Chevy LS6 engine because it produces a little more power than the LS3 (even though the stock LS3 is a 6.2 litre) it delivers it a bit better and is a little less in terms of cost than a new LS3. I think it will suit me better than the Chevy 383 small block engine, because I like its looks, it is newer technology and should, in my opinion, be a little less temperamental and I am not trying to build a period replica. The LS6 engine is no longer produced, but with a new reg car, I can have one major used/refreshed part, so this could be the engine.
