HAHA!! OMG! I'm rolling on the floor right now, haha!
Hmm. all better now. If he/you was/are serious (we may have scared him away...) he may have been thinking about the "small-block" designation. And thinking that it meant the same engine black all the way around.

Aw come on it was a joke!

Though it's not like they are really that different. They all have pistons, cylinders, and valves. If you want REALLY different you'd have to go to a wankel (rotary) motor...

In reality now I've been trying to source a new motor for my CJ7 Jeep and all of the used engine guys have been looking at me weird when I say "Which 5.7 Liter is that V8?"... I've heard "they're all the same" so many times. Never mind the difference in complexity between fuel injection and carbs.

I think I've decided to go with a 5.3L like what is in my Avalanche as a few companies are making the computers to allow that kind of install. It is also almost as light as the AMC 258 20 year old six cylinder in there now. Which blows my mind.

Engines really they are all the same..... <--- see smiley?

GM has always given it's consumers the most interchangable parts on the market all of their engine blocks and trans housings bold up in trucks. parts swap over insanely easy.... that's what made Gm #1 for so long.

They have many engine configurations... very similar blocks but many different parts that go on to make the long block

Iknew it was a joke...hrm, hem. I did know you couldn't have been that stupid, to think that all engines were the same, and only tuned different.

Sorry, if I did come off harsh...didn't mean it!

Yeah...I'm pretty sure he's joking.

Here's a bit of trivia. GM has used basically the same bolt pattern for the bell housing for EVERY V8 (small block) and V6 since something like 1958? It's the standard pattern and Cummings diesels (4bt) use that pattern for their adapter plate in the Frito Lay and Wonder Bread box vans.

Remind me what a bell housing is?

And why change something that works? Same deal with the pushrod argument...

1958...hmm. Proves they still do make 'em like they used to, huh?
And all the small blocks share the basic block design.

It would be 1955, and its small block, big block, 90 degree v6(200,229,265), as well as L6 and L4 pushrod engines but not the "W" motors(348, 409) or the 60 degree v6s(2.8,3.1,3.4,3.5,3.9,these share the small bellhousing pattern with the likes of the 3.8 buick and the northstar)
