I own an 84 with a 305. It has 166000 miles on it and, needless to say, its tired. I'd like to put an ls1 v6 in it. The v6 will give me about 200 extra and pretty good gas mileage, however, I am having problems finding the engine, all I can find is the v8. Any ideas where I can find the engine and harness?

Are you looking for new or salvage? GM I believe has the v6. Don't know about the wiring. Local salvage yard may be able to locate what you need. Not sure about mounts, trans and stuff

Can anyone recommend any create engines with good power and decent mpgs?
Don't know if it's available, but I'd love to have one of the new Camaro V6s. They have 300 HP and get great mileage. A 6-speed auto would be a real bonus.

An ls1 4.8 has good power and fuel mileage and are at every junk yard for cheap. I don't tgink you would be very happy going from a v8 to a v6 and if your going through all that trouble wiring and plumbing for an ls motor why not. A v8

I believe at one of the GOODGUYS show G.M showed a in line turbo 4 that exceeded 260hp just a thought !
best idea is to contact a performance oriented GM dealer
