    Bought a blower!

    I cannot wait to put this on... Sadly I kind bought the cart before the horse; I will be getting a crate motor built for boost and a Dana S60 in the next few months so I have to be content with looking at it's shininess in the garage for a little bit. It's a vortech V3; I am ordering the mount kit for it next week (It came off an LS1 vette so I need some special brackets) but I got a good deal on it so I'm happy. Sending it off next week to vortech to get it gone through and warrantied. I'll post a build thread when I get evrything together. Me and a buddy are gonna do the work. I was gonna get a Vette, but Screw it; the TA is mine(no payment) and I love it so Im gonna build the shit out of it!!!

    Congrats! Very cool addition for your car -- I agree, keep the F-body and make it stupid fast.

    I wish I had decided to do this before the heads and cam; I went with a non boost friendly cam so Im just going to sell the longblock in the car now and get a forged crate motor from Texas speed.

    DO IT!

    The only reason I have all this money to play with is my wife is deployed to Africa. We made a deal; she gets a G8GT and I get a Blown TA.
