Curious, have you calculated MPG?
Stock LQ9 is like 10.0-1 so i think we are 10.9-11.0 to 1 with LS6 Head.

Gas mileage hasn't been calculated as i don't really drive the car but around town, race it.

Sweet car! I liked your attention to detail removing the frame and painting it. Glad to see someone doing a G body. Not too many of these out there. I've had mostly X bodies and now I've got two F's. Trying to get one of em going this summer!
Good luck with hitting those 10's!

Great build. What Pressure power steering line did you use with your build. In August when I return from Korea I will be building my 78 Malibu as well.
