With a full L67 swap, you'll pass emissions just fine.

You are going to be NOWHERE near the class of a stock Corvette without doing TONS of work.

I know we have a lot of work ahead of us in a short amount of time but thats the name of this game its always something with a short deadline and shorter tempers. My shop mechanics have yet to fail me. The LS1 Storm devistated all last year. This year I am hoping to have a simmilar experiance. If we go with a LS1 or mabye the LS6 with spray, super charger, msd ignition and coils, high flow headers, high flow cats, mufflers, and some serious work to keep it emmision legal we should be able to take out the best vetts out there. Mabye even go as crazy as to try to fit a viper 10 cyl in this thing, thought I doubt it would fit, but hey why not try. our saying goes, MAKE THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE AND THE UNTHINKABLE A REALITY.

Well I guess that we have decided to tear out the poor v6 and drop in an LS6 motor with a turbo 350 and custom ford 9" rear end. I'll send pics of construction and finall product. We hope to have it done in time. The other add ons will be nos, twin turbos, and a whole lotta luck

That sounds like an interesting project.
You will definitely have to do a lot of cutting and welding to fit that beast.

Be sure to post the progress pics for us to drool over.

Maybe this will be an extreme version of what the GXP shoulda been.

Tommorow we start demolition so I will take pics and send them as we go along. They guys suggested we might be able to squeeze and LS7 big boy in there. We have a mock up block and it just might fit but the fire wall and the floor have to all be custom made to fit around it. The rear end looks like a currie ford 9" it going in with a custom 4 link set up. Turns out all the mods we can get away with as long as we keep it emmisions legal. If the LS7 dosent fit at least we will have pleanty of room for the LS6. Hopefully posting pics tommorow.
