? definitly a newb question i know, and i have done a bit of searching and reading but havnt really seen anything directly related to the reliability and the modability of the Fcar v8s. what can you tell me? Are they really expensive to get any serious power out of them (superchargers, turbos, etc.) and can they last more then 3000 miles without a expensive rebuild? can a regular guy wrench on his own motor and do regular maintainence?
