So then...I was way off on even my faintest idea. I had presumed that there was a physical difference in the engine block itself and not on the components it comes with. In other words, I thought that a long block might have a longer distance between cylinders...yada yada...

So long and short have the basic same meanings in different Mfg's? A difference in components and not the actual block... (I'm confusing even myself.)

See...ignorance can be ugly...thx.

Yessir, if you go down to your local Pep Boy's (or whatever) and order a longblock, no matter the make of vehicle you'll get the same basic components on the pallet.

I'm thinking what you're thinking is the difference between for instance a small block Chevy (SBC) and a big block Chevy (BBC). They're both Chevy's but have different architecture.

By the by, if anybody gives a rats ass this is post 1k for me. That makes my new motto "Over 3 million pissed off". Who da man, I da man!

Affirmative on the big block vs. the small block... d'oh. Now I need a different explanation.

And now you are extrodinaire!!

This is also a fairly easy thing to understand. Basically the major difference between a big block and a small block (remember architecture) is bore spacing and deck height. Of course there are also other minor variations because they are different designs.

Although I'm quite sure someone will come in and tell you different, displacement while generally larger on a big block, is NOT a determining factor.

you know, i was gonna take this and run with it just because of how bored i am, but i don't have the patience vwhobo does for people who are intellectually challenged
i get pissed off too easily, comes with youth i guess
i'll school you in 5, 6 years, it's possible that i'll have calmed down enough to bother then
till then, have a nice day

What a perfect way to start the day. The question is where exactly do I start with an idiot like you. Oh yeah, first welcome back to the forums, I like your new name. Your post is proof that you still know nothing about drag racing.

1.. Please show me where I said anything about how fast one of my vans is. Can't do it, haven't typed it, don't know, doesn't exist.

2. Please show me where I said how fast my cars run 0-60. Can't do it, haven't typed it, don't know, doesn't exist.

3. Go back to your forth grade class and ask the teacher to teach you about drag racing. Maybe she has the patience to explain the concept of a 60 time to you.

4. Take a look at what you typed. Your list contains only three "street lagal" (your spelling) cars. The rest are race only and one isn't even a car.

5. Lastly, from here on every word you type on this subject will be one more nail in your coffin of stupidity, please don't persue it. Now go home, look in the mirror and when you grow some pubic hair come back and we'll talk. Maybe by then you'll have a clue.

Apology accepted. Next time don't assume, we all know what that does and it just did it to you. You didn't mention that you also assumed I was talking 0-60 but we won't go into that.

Well you sounded an awful lot like someone who has payed this game before so I took a shot in the dark. How about explaining the inconsistencies on your list of "street legal" cars.
