I moved the horns down below the front bumper - even more free flow across the rad.

Flashed the tune and got the drive shaft in, got to drive it off the trailer. It moves on its own power now



got the tach working, temp gauge working, and also got this beer tap ordered so i can make it my shift knob. haha something different





Still got to fix brakes, master cylinder is shot and booster is full of fluid. So got to get all that ordered and hope it will be on the road soon working all the bugs out and fine tuning it

well guess i can update this a little... car is currently apart again. Sold the motor, trans, harness, and all. decided the ls1 and 6 speed was quick enough. new stuff currently consist of...

6.0/4l80
80mm billet VS turbo
Holley terminator x max wiring.

Will get some pics soon. Anyone know a decent place to upload pics other than photobucket?
