There was a post here of someone looking for info on an Engine swap in their car, I'm curious as to what happened to that. A statement in it was along the lines of if something was said that would hurt feelings the whole post would be deleted, so I take it a few of us talking about engine setups the OP did that?

If words on the damn internet did that, God help you when you bust a knuckle or break a nail IF, and that's a big IF, you work on your own car.

That is all.

If this is stirring up a mess well fell free to delete. Just wondering what men we have here on this forum, seems to be dwindling.

Only missed the last half hour or so.....didn't seem like it was headed off the rails.

It wasn't, that's why I'm wondering what happened here. It opened with a statement of pretty much "if I don't hear what I want to hear..".

So if that's the case, why ask.🙄

I remember him thanking us for the great input.
MAYBE he heard enough to make a decision.
And instead of having the discussion devolve into a sbc vs ls battle, he pulled the plug. His thread, he can do what he wants with it.

Well, atleast you saw it.

I'm just here to help those get the most accurate information I can give them. We all have a different scope of knowledge, atleast use it.

I was going to comment in that thread that I am perfectly happy with my 355 SBC and 200R4 in my Regal but watched it go to basically an LS or nothing thread.

I know what my last comment was, why I'm wondering what I missed.

My input was a nice Vortec SBC, slap some good Heads on it with the newer type of Carb flange mounted EFI, or an LS. I've worked with both why I say that.

All kinds of parts out now, only limit is the bank account.

Yea, I guess I'm looking at it in the aspect of you ask people for their input, they take the time to give it to you, why delete the thing..🤷‍♂️

Someone already said he made a closure post thanking people for the inputs so there's that atleast. I didn't see it, hence me asking it in my first post.

The opening got me though, it's one of them if you're looking for it to go to crap, well it'll go to crap. Let things go the way they go.

As I said, if this isn't needed well admin can nix it, just was curious.
