Hey guys, i have been looking around recently for a M113 V8 to put into my 107 SLC with the intention of later supercharging. :D

In terms of ability to survive ~15psi of boost is there much difference in the M113 engines, i know the 5.5 is obviously the most powerful but is the N/A version as able to handle boosted situations as well as a stock 5.5Kompresser engine? What about the 5 or the 4.3 those been alot cheaper and easier to source will they hold up to some boost or have they been designed to be on the limit of their abilitys to save weight/costs? :rolleyes:

As much as i would love to just get a 5.5K engine its likely to be a bit out of my price range specially here in Australia. :surrender:
