I am leaning toward the "forget it you idiot, you would be ruining a
great LBC!!" theory, however there are a few places here in the Seattle
area where you can get some deals on Small block Chevy setups. I saw
a complete Engine, 6-Speed setup including electronics (Port Injection
system from a Z-28) at Fitz Wrecking in Woodinville recently.
If you feel you must, that may be the way to go.
