less strict emission policies and bullsh1t like that make horsepower much easier to gain... you could pull that power form your 4.3 if you could legally do to your engine what they can over there

Yeah....I love (well maybe not to that extreme) where I live. I'm bout 2-3 hrs from Myrtle Beach and 2-3 hrs from the mountains and snow in Virginia. Now if I could just get some time outta school to hit the snow I'd be ok (if there is any). Here it is, almost Dec. and it's still 80 here. That's outragous.

Just curious?

What parts go into these engines that make them more powerful?

lol-they got you!

hmmmm....

Thats 373 Newton Meters of torque, if you look. To convert this to foot pounds, we need to do some conversions. First, 1 NM = 1 joule. 1J=.7376 ftlbs. So, 373*.7376 = 275.12 ftlbs. This is better than what is avaible to us, but not that much.

Sigh, what I would give for a Caddy Catera with an LS1. Rear wheel drive, 345 hp, leather, OnStar, Bose....sigh. Lucky damn Europeans.

lol, Nat would be fine

Hah!

I am in an applied physics class in school, and that kind conversion we do all the time. I wish we would convert everything to the metric system-the english is a lot harder to understand and convert. Oh well.
