It's supposed to be a 340 c.i. Mopar engine. Haven't built one in a while, so I can't remember how accurate it is.

Maybe it's the very rare Franischilling Firehunk 347. Lots of things preclude it from being an accurate model of anything else.

Supposedly a Chrysler Corp LA. It ain't. Notice the exhaust ports on an LA...like a smallblock Chebby: image.jpeg.a86e1824dcfb568d1e2cd225f1c6c2ee.jpeg

The kit engine has even exhaust port spacing.

Dam. Now I have to buld it, make it look decent, use whatever parts I want, and call it EXACTLY that. Gotta happen.

I have that engine in my parts box, and probably where it will stay. It is a poor representation of about anything. I am a Mopar fan, and I could not ID it as a LA small block. If you just need a generic engine for a build where it will be mostly hidden, it  could work. But if it needs to be right, find something else.
