I too don't think that information is correct. There is more of a chance at getting a ZL1 engine with a Rockcrusher M-22 in these cars than an archaic Gen II engine. It has to be a 6.X liter LSX variation; NO WAY could it be a Gen II... All the optispark and water pump problems, not to mention I believe it was either the hydrocarbons or nitro-something emissions were too high because of the LT-series compression ratios and combustion chamber designs. Gen III are far more advanced (let alone Gen IVs) so there is just no way, IMVHO.
