Billet Block

Thinking of one of these for the YJ, Think it will get me the chicks?

Billet V-8 Block on Utube.

I really like the guy in the comments section "I could do this with a Dremmel" :-)

A bad weekend of wheelin', is still a good weekend.

I like how its listed under "How To" and "DIY"

A real interesting question is how long until a machine like that can reproduce itself?

i would like to know the scale of that block....seemed smaller than an automobile engine....

maybe it was a small v-8 for a motorcycle or something.....

hard to tell i guess.

but definately a neat promo piece for them
