Thanks Todd...but to become #2 would be pretty ambitious. We'll see when I actually get to the track, I think I'll need some cooler temps to get a good run.

BTW, the 97 Bonne weighs almost exactly what a 97-03 W-body weighs (3520 Lbs) - so it'* lighter than a 00 Bonne for sure.

Cheers,

Holy ****! Thats quite a mod bug that bit you there all at once! I imagine you are defiantely enjoying it and it probably runs pretty damn good. I like your choice in camshaft as well, thats by far my favorite cam as far as streetability vs. performance goes and I think you'll like it a lot! How long do you think those Potenza G009'* are gonna last with that kinda torque to the front tires...you might have to invest in something stickier!

Looks good and should run great as well. I can't wait to hear of the results at the track and on the dyno....8 ball might need to watch out!

OOOO Pontiac blue engine paint.

The parts are pretty sweet too. IF you don't get 12'* i'll hunt you down, and do it myself.

dont forget he is getting a higher ratio tranny too, he should be in the 12'* easily.

Rogue, you better get busy!

Runs awesome...I love the idle...takes me back to the days of big blocks. And the tires...yes you're right, the tread seems to be wearing off

That might be interesting, but Arizona is a long way from Montreal and CAI is fairly big

Thanks for all the feedback guys, I appreciate it
