considering i only paid 1750 for it and the trans only has 4k on it I think it is well worth the money considering i was looking for a t56 local and they wanted 2500+ just for a used trans ya it worked out

woooohooooo i traded the stock ram air hood str8 across for a fiberglass ram air hood so there goes 15 lbs or so off the nose. Next project is the battery relocation project for a closer to 50/50 weight dist so it has a better balanced feel to it.

well the update on this thing... going forged 383 in the future. fell on a 64k complete lt1 from a 97 z28 for a price i really couldn't say no to so it will get a lt4 hot cam with 1.6 or 1.7 roller rockers and the ported intake and 58 mm tb. hoping to fall into a set of headers too but time will tell I got to get this knocked out over christmas break since I got told about the bandit run being kicked off in april at one of the closest places of all the runs so far. I will post pics when this is going back together.
