    That is just way too much. I really don't see the point in all that. With that much money, might as well get a Vette.

    IMHO I think his car would crush a C5 and stock C6 vette, ZO6 not sure.

    Also you need to see some of his videos.

    Yeah but that's not really my point. A car with that much work should. Everybody has their thing but my money would be spent differently. For 5 grand you can have a full supercharger kit with all the goodies at 1/4 of the cost..

    so let me get this streight you are sponsored for street racing??? maybe i read that wrong. any way if you are looking to build a 408 then a maf and bolt ons is the last thing you should be worried about. start looking at piston size,crank,and rods. I built my 408 pretty much from talking to lou.s and texas speed. and you might as well take a saw and cut that rear right in half. it will never hold 500rwhp. its a long pricy process. to the point I almost wish i just kept the damn thing stock.

    He originally intended to build a Forced induction car but changed his mind. Also alot of what you see on that list is supporting mods to make sure everything holds up and runs well. Also my money would easily be on his car over a ls1 with a supercharger kit.

    so your looking at either a 8 second car (408 twin turbo) or a stock ls1????? kind of a big gap there
