Jegs crate motor/heart surgery

I ordered a GM crate motor from Jegs.....$1530 delivered!!! Could not pass it up for that price.

Anyone have any experience with the 260 hp motor?

Tomorrow I go into the hospital for open heart surgery So
I will be off the site for a while.

Welcome back! Unwrap that new motor and take us a pic when you have time/energy. That is a great deal...

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

Speedy recovery Donnie!

Hope you can drive your car soon (my doctor won't let me drive for another three months).

You might not want to kick that new motor too hard at first. It could be too much fun for you.

Donnie lives about an hours drive from me in the Land of Mickey or in Florida's case the World of Mickey. I hope to drive over to Old Town in Orlando at some time and see Donnies car at the show they hold there every month. Or he could drive to Plant City and show his car on the third Saturday of every month when we have our show.
