Really no comparison, The car acts tame while cruising and just wakes the f-up at mid to upper rpms...I can hit the key once and it fires, I dont smell like a tank of gas Oh and did I mention it runs like a no other and gets good gas mileage..lol

In all honesty best upgrade I've ever done!!

It's cool hanging out with the old school hotrod crowd as well as the LS based Camaro and Vette crowd...

Lol,, I had it a tad bit lower, but running a 245 on an 8" wide rim up front can be tricky sometimes..lol

Thanks guys

which mounts and headers did you use, i have a 72 Nova, and enough spare stuff from my LS Chevelle build to put together a 6.0 with an LS6 intake and computer-i had built a low perf. 496, but though about sticking the spare parts in the Nova

Congrats! Looks great, I still love the way my stock LQ4 pulls. Its nice and sedate till you get into it and then it just keeps pulling harder
