I have a 67 chevy step side as well as my chevelle and when the money is there or I get sick of the car. My plans for the 67 are a 292 with EFI. I thought about retrofiting the new 4.2 form a trailblazer in to it.  Id like to see a straight six build with EFI and a turbo. If the 292 could get 1.1 HP per ci then thats 321HP N/A and say 50% for blower now thats 481 HP from 292 cubes @ 1.64 HP per cube? sounds fun to me and should be good on gas too. Now put that in a early nova or camaro or chevelle and have some fun. call me crazy but thats my take on it.

How about the 4.2 with twin turbos?  I think they started to test it out, made 400 hp. with 4 valve DOHC heads, the only problem I heard was the trans bolt pattern.  There are pics on the net if you google it.
