Heres the crusty old LQ4 pre any beauty :



-Install cam from the LS1 (Comp - .617/.612 231/234 113LSA)
-Send heads out for cleaning/inspection
-Install my Brain Tooley valve train off the LS1
-Swap over my headers
-Swap over my intake manifold
-Clean and paint block
-Swap over my valve covers
-Get it mated to the T56 and into the car
-Fill her with some Rotella T6 5W40 and a GM filter
-Burnouts

While I'm here, any suggestions on mods for the future?

I am thinking, once its running obivously :

-SS Hood
-Possible SS Spoiler, still torn on this
-Lowering Springs
-Torq Thrust M in Anthracite (17")
-6LE Gauge Face
-Hurst Chrome Shifter stick with Hurst White ball
-"Hurst Equipped" badge for rear panel
-5th Gen Z/28 fender badges
-Tint

Any other ideas or pics, still tossing ideas around in my head.

Definitely SS hood/spoiler, they're hard to find however. Strano/Koni setup! Where did you get that grill and turn signals?

If you wanna buy the turn signals they are yours. I took them back out for the OE ones, prefer the orange myself.

The grille I got from my buddy that sold his 02 SS.

I have a hook up at our body shop through work that can get me a killer deal on SS hood/spoiler.

Berger Panel and SS spoiler should be high on the list. SS hood too if you can do it for a good price.

I would either make the car a "Tom Murphy" replica, or buy my CCW race Classics

Berger panel has been painted, I think hood before spoiler IMO.

CCW with rubber? How much

My deal will be slightly larger then what I can get people here (free paint and install), but I can get the hood itself for around $270 plus shipping roughly, I can get some prices firm from him if you are interested when I order mine?

Picking up some SS/ZR1 rims tomorrow. Then lower, SS hood and tint and it'll be a clean look I think.

Got an ever been deal on these then I though. Brand new Michelin Pilot Sports in 255 on front, and rears in 275 good for 1 season. Rims in decent shape, for a price I couldn't argue!




Now working on ordering my SS Hood/Spoiler while the motor swap is being worked on.

Get a vfn sunoco hood. Looks meaner than a SS hood yet still not a all out race car look.
