Default Finally Got the Malibu up and running (vid inside)!

Well it's been a long time coming but this past week I finally got my 79 Malibu swap up and running! It's a carbed LQ4/L92 combo. Here's a video I took today after I got it washed up.

I'm hoping to get it to the track in about two weeks! I just ordered a larger fan for it, because the one I have doesn't like to keep it cool while sitting and idling.

The cam is a Comp cam I got through Texas Speed it's their LS3 231/236 .644/613 w/ 111LSA
