    Smile X-Mas in July!

    I am working on getting some sort of video capture ready for Saturday.
    I hope to have a video and audio of before/after instillation.
    I expect the preliminary break-in to be dodgy at best, as I won't be tuning it until next month; after the new ignition system (spark multiplier, 2step, coils and a bad ass PCM by Massaro's Auto!).
    I'll keep you posted!



    Mitch, you know I had to go with the Mutha Thumpr instead of just the Thumpr. The name is SO COOL! :P
    See ya bros.

    LOL, That thing is going to sound bad ass with that 109 lsa. I'll be installing cam/heads whenever the heads come back from the machine shop.

    Well the cam's all buttoned up.
    That was a chore that I hope I don't have to do again any time soon.
    I've got lots of good video/audio and pics I hope to post tonight. I borrowed the camera from my sister, and I don't think she gave me the cord I need to plug it into the computer.
    Anyway! Coming soon!

    Alllllrighty.
    As promised:
    Time for surgery.




    Pops helps with the easy stuff; says he's "earned that right." :P














    I found the springs in the LS1 to be the easiest springs I have ever personally changed in a late model V8. However, I did slip off of one once and lost the locks in the back abyss. After searching for an hour and dreading the thought of having to break the head down, I found it, chillin' under the PCM on the body.


    If you don't have a parts washer...


    You should invest.

    The wooden dowel trick was a real time saver.

    Very nice. Can't wait to hear it on a walk-around, and get some revs in there. Post up a dyno number if you get one.

    hahaha I surely will.
    But that's got to wait for tuning.
    We're going to run it down to Ramsey's in Lutz and have him go to work on it with a pair of pliers and a blow-torch.

    Right now, the only thing keeping it ideling is the massive vaccume leak I created by removing the PCV and Fuelk tank vent tubes.
    It's loading up real bad; I either missed a tooth and retarded it or the missing 02's are F*ing up the mix. ...Or both...
    lol anyway, i'll keep the info coming! Hope to have it running 6's by the end of summer!
