Whoever he hooks up with, they'll both learn on the install, and pass that knowledge on to the next. It'* cool how it works here.

(off-topic comparison between the Zilla and 8-ball, he may have me by a couple seconds, but we both can claim to be the two quickest non-nitrous Daily-Driven FWD Bonnevilles of our respective Series)

Jake,

Like already mentioned ask some questions to various vendors and see who can help you out the best. Thatí* what I did \/ You have a huge base of knowledge here and at INTENSE. Heck your set you have the hardest part taken care of already $.

Wow, I would not mind having a budget like that. I'd put most of that into a tranny. Personally, I'd go with a turbo next. I feel the L67'* have enough grunt to get around until the turbo would spool up. In my opinion. Then cam and heads as money comes along.

North Carolina huh? Sounds like my side of the country.

Jake..it'* a weekend deal. You start on a Friday night and by mid Saturday it should be up and running. You luckily have a newer body style with the big dopey mount under the balancer that holds your motor to the subframe. (Unlike Dillcc and I). You can drop the side of the frame..slide in the new cam and enjoy.

Whether you take it on yourself, have help or have it professionally installed you have a good budget to consider more power and getting that power to the ground.

Intense installations are rocket fast. Tim is an amazing professional and lives to install parts and amaze us with his ability to make installs happen quickly.
Zilla Motorsports.. that guy takes a lot of beer breaks j/k Bill...you do though.
PDM will change an engine three times because I'm practicing to take Tim down on a speed challenge ... It'll be on ESPN 8 (the ocho) one of these days.
