    Which engine?

    If you had a choice, which engine would you like to see in a Noble or Rossion?

    i was talking to a customer today about engine options. he mentioned if v8 could fit. with a bunch of work, yes.
    for a v6, the Buik Grand National is a very good choice, but wanted to hear from others and their opinions.

    the Ls7 is a very popular choice, it's a very proven platform.

    With V8 comes heat, and length and weight. Light and short is good, otherwise the LOA grows appreciably, especially when looking at stout box options al la Porsche transaxial etc.

    depends, the small block ford v8 is the same width as the v6 and about 5" longer.

    A ford 302 weighs 297lbs. with oil and 379 fully dressed.

    However, the cranks aren't that strong.

    5.0 engine. Use a dry sump and this motor has a very small frame and very light.
