And she sounds angry!

She has a 6.0 truck block and bottom end
ARE ported LS1 heads (300 cfm flow)
CC 232/238 114 LSA .600 lift camshaft
LS6 intake
Z06 Exhaust manifolds and oil pan
4L60E that fully built
Dana 44 rear diff

The car's been down since November... and I changed my mind on the L98 rebuild in January. Started amassing parts for the project then. On June 21st at about 10:00 am she was alive. You can read about the build here:

Many vendors contributed to this project-

Speed Secrets -Thanks Ellis!

Nelson Performance Wiring Harnesses- Thanks Allen!

Speartech- Thanks John!

Fred Beans- Thanks for the best prices around on new parts!

KARSHOP- Thanks Gene! C5 Used Parts- Some of the best people around and the best deals on used parts!
The tech and performance sections here are great, too! Some of the most most knowledgeable engine swap guys reside there. Priceless info!
They have a huge resource for used parts as well. Several of my components came from there! - Another great source for parts!

I can't even start to name all the individuals that helped either passively or actively! I poured over this section and internet nightly for hours doing the research and tracking down the parts. Every post in here has merit!

THANKS to everyone!

I fixed the link...

CCC is not in the cards for this one. Not as a participant anyway. As a Convertible with no rollbar... she's really not gonna pass tech as capable as she should be.
