Sounds like a ton of work went into it! Sounds pretty cool, but I gotta ask.

Its 205hp [email protected], 24 valve, coil on plug hemi V-6. Stock.
I had a 2000 suv that was hit in the side. Body was bad but didnt hurt the frame And the wheel base was the same between the two. So I rolled the suv off its frame and added my 73 K5 to it. And took most all the late model cool things also..so how do I add pics from my fone to this post?

whats funny is the new v-6's and even some 4 bangers put out as much hp as some of the older v8's

i have a 73 400ci in my 86 and from the factory it only had 195hp... though a bit more torque
