I agree. It would cost some bucks. I've swapped a couple emails with Nascar Mike regarding upgardes that he's done to his Vic, and he has some nice idea's that aren't costing an arm and a leg.
I even picked up a spare CVPI engine and drive train, including the whole rear end, with the hopes of modifying the heck out of it and then dropping it into my Vic. But I'll never have the money to do what I want. I'll probably end up selling the engine and other stuff.
