Yes those of us "OLD HEADS" know the history, new ones (like the OP of THIS thread) likely don't. My point is give credit where credit is due if others deserve some of it. Humble pie TASTES GREAT! Its also GOOD FOR US! The opposite is bitter and often has painful consequences. Its almost like drinking rat poison because if it doesn't kill us we won't be worth much to ourselves or others with whatever is left.

There are various "builds" of Legends and some showed and telled and others (MOST) did not.


DV8 had THE BUILD of ALL 3.5 C35A engines . . . PERIOD!! There are likely still old grainy videos on YouTube of that Canary Yellow Legend with the REALLY WIDE front tires doing burnouts and then quarter mile passes. Lou a.k.a. Greekpower BOUGHT THAT MOTOR and then did all the stuff with the heads and turbo etc. The BOTTOM of that engine he hasn't claimed as modifying. So Christian still DESERVES honorable mention for THAT engine.

Here I found one of those videos I mentioned (not so grainy either )

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OUzbiPMu5g

Oh and guess whose Youtube channel this video from FIFTEEN YEARS AGO is on? Here is a hint . . . GreekPower!
