    Need to take a breath and put some full stops in every now and then lol.

    Isnt the oil system on a holden v8 rather bad at constant high rpms? In which case, chev would probably be a better choice. Everyone fits 253 into hilux relatively easy though, not sure about a chev. Windsor v8 are pretty small afaik, might fit even easier.

    If you go sbc I've got an engine plate for you to suit . I'd go injected 5 litre with good headgaskets and a cheap blower on that preferably a 6/71 . Starter is on passenger side, one less thing to change .
