For some reason I can't get away from these projects.  I always liked the SVO.  Growing up my father was a big car nut so naturally he wouldn't let me buy anything too fast and I was always modifying'm to more adequate levels.  I had/have a 90 Grand Am with a Quad4 and a 5.0 NOS dry kit.  It ran like all hell  but I was replacing head gaskets, heads, pistons, valves, transmissions, the short block, and finally a crank, rods and bearings.  I could change a piston in about 12 hours. Anyway I decided something more suitable was needed and bought the SVO.
