Got the rear subframe tacked in this weekend.. Now it's time to narrow the axle up and get some 4 link bars made.

Staying stock bottom end? What's the managment going to be? You are close to Steve Frost. Hell of a GM LSx tuner. I remember the PCS guys playing with the LSx stuff so I'm sure they have contacts as well. Well done buddy. Keep plugging along.

I'm thinking about building a stroker since I just have a 6.0 block at the moment. Gonna use a E67, and I'll have Matt Shue tune.

Started working on the front section of the car. Made some sleeves to slide into the framerails at the firewall node. Then tacked 4 beads around each tube to space the frame halves together, so when it's welded up the two frame halves will be burned into the sleeve as well as each other. Started bending tubes for the upper a-arm mounts.

No ET goals.. just building a car that goes fast.. straight and around corners, and something capable of being street driven..
