    Here is the vid ----> Video Here

    The guy that did the swap stated that he used the 2V computer. I would guess that means that he did not use the VVT
    (Variable Valve Timing).

    He gave just limited info...hope he posts more soon. I've been kicking this swap around for a couple of months. Problem is my car is my DD, so I would have to do the swap with very little down time. I'd rather others do it first, find out the + and - then I can copy :)

    350rwhp off a 3 valve with what appears to be only exhaust and some kind of intake tube ??? Sounds HIGH to me :-\ :-\

    Neat swap non the less, however if I was to do a swap on a modular car it would be a 4 valve out of a Mach 1 car or a 03-04 TERMINATOR motor.

    3V cars make just as much if not more than 4V cars. This particular car had a built 3V stroker.

    Come on, you don't really believe that do you? "Just as much if not more"? Stroke a 4V and you'll get alot more than 350 rwhp!! I make 317 rwhp with an auto tranny and a few bolt ons.....

    for around or a little more go with the 4v swap.
    the "potential" for the 4v is a lot better.
    read: one more valve per cylinder=better air flow
