Its all about money. You have enough money and you can do any swap you want.
I think the craziest you will see on here is a 351 w/ supercharger.

there would be no gains from asian motors. First, they'd be a ***** to hook in. Basically you'd end up with a ranger body on an asian frame/suspension.

Also, most of those car engines are high rpm and low torque. Our trucks have lotsa weight to move.

Umm no. Just in movies. That is way too much money involved in that kind of project for the shade tree mechanic.

I think you would have better luck with an RX7 motor, find a nice TT motor.

those are some nice tittays!

By the way, if I had a crapload of money I'd definately go Mercedes AMG engine. 10K for the engine alone, 550 NA horsepower, 600 Torque. Strongest production engine for a car.
