56 thunderbird. My wife really likes these. Oil leaks and fuel system issues. Looks like to pull the transmission the motor might have to come out.

Factory fuel injected 57 Corvette. This is one of our cars I am prepping to go up for sale. Only 1,040 fuel injected cars were built. I need to do a little more research to see if it was a 250 or a 280 horse car. Doesn't really matter though. It is numbers matching and we built the motor. It only has about 200 mi on it. Holly computer running an aftermarket set of rails and fuel injectors so the car will actually run in the heat and today's ethanol fuels. Solid cam in this motor is a beautiful symphony of sound. I love the patina on this car. Would love to build a rat rod C1 Corvette someday and have it look like this. But on a Morrison chassis with twin turbos coming out of the hood. Right now redoing the entire fuel system with an aftermarket heavy duty stainless tank, in tank pump, new filter and regulator.

Doing a ground up on a 1970 C10 Chevy pickup. Motor will be a 6.2 LS based. Six speed automatic transmission. Rolling chassis together and ready to go over to the paint shop. They will be bolting on the body and the bed for fitment.

Will you guys be using one of the GMPP kits?

My brother just had 525hp kit done in his '86 C10.  It rips!  The 6L80 in Sport mode is sweet.

How cool is that to have a pet skunk. I’ve always wanted one and also a pet Raccoon.

Couple aluminum LS style heads came in with damage to exhaust threads in each head. Beyond helicoil help. A little plug a little weld and a little milling they will be good as new.

Been waiting two and a half months for a wiring harness from Holley. Doing some upgrading on the engine management including crank sensor.

It might have a vibration because a connecting rod is in his cup holder. :classic_smile:
