Me either. The biggest problem is people think there's some magic tweak you can do to these motors to turn them into a Hayabusa or something. Another thing is you can't just do one thing and expect great performance gains. Sure there's a few things like porting and adding an expansion pipe that can help quite a bit but turning one of these into a screamer takes quite a bit of work that in my opinion, other then bragging rights, really isn't worth it.

You wouldn't put a 6-71 blower on a stock Chevy smallblock, oh sure it'll be impressive for a couple of minutes.
