Hello. New member. Lot of crazy questions.
- Hi All.
I never realized until just today that the Cadillac 500 was such a
hot motor. I didnt know anything about MTS or all the performance
parts thats around for em. I have a few questions for ya. Im building
a 73 prostreet Gremlin, tubbed, 18.5 inch Mt's, 4 point cage, racing
seats, ect..., but its going to be driven on the street regularly.
They put AMC 401's in em, ya think the Caddy 500 would go? Im going
with big block something, so might as well go with the biggest. How
wide are they? What motor do they compare to size wise? Whats the
weight of em? I heard that with aftermarket intake the weight is
about the same as a sbc, but if the 500 is about the same size as a
bbc, how can that be? I dont want to buy, build and then install only
to find out theres no way, but if it will fit, it would sure be
awesome. Let me know what you think. Is it best to find a complete
500 or buy the block N build? I am looking at buying a std bore 500
block right now. I know MTS and PAW have crank kits. Is this the way
to go? Tnx, Rod
