Well, well, well. Another question that raises more questions that aren't answered. What is the condition of the engines? Are they stock or modified? How are they modified? If they're stock are the SBC's two or four barrels? What year Road Runner? What kind of car are they going into? And on and on and on.

How do you people that ask ambiguous questions like this expect a real answer? Or do you just leave it real vague so you and other people like you can waste bandwidth?

I'll be happy to give you a straight opinion/answer if you'll provide a straight question. Have a nice day.

"Go it". What does that mean? So you also wanted people to work on assumptions. As you may know when you assume you make an ass out of you, but not me. Instead of being a smart ass you should have listened and learned but obviously that's to hard.

Have you answered all the questions I posed yet? No you haven't. How hard can that be? If it's not hard for me (or someone else) to quote the ratings, how hard can it be for you to do some research on your own? How can someone give an opinion if they don't know what the question really is?

Bottom line is little man is if you want a thought out intellegent answer, start with a thought out intellegent question.

Very easy to find. Just timed myself, under four minutes for all three.

If I was stuck up I wouldn't have spent this much time trying to answer your question. If I was ignorant I wouldn't know the answer, like you. I'm much older than 30 and this is what I do when taking a break from the important stuff in my life.

You on the other hand STILL haven't answered all of the clarifying questions I posed earlier. In all likelyhood you are a 14 year old wanna-be who doesn't know enough about cars to ask a clear and complete question. You go around asking silly questions you don't even care what the answer is but expect other people to try to come up with the answer.

So where does that leave us. As stated before, I'll be happy to give you a straight opinion/answer if you'll provide a straight question. You have not done that. The ball is in your court.
