    Just put it this way, just about every part you can think of in your car, is going to have to be upgraded. Im in the process of researcing a 402 iron block swap. Im up to about 18K without labor.

    Word brotha, haha.

    I got a whole word document typed of everything that ive done to my car and all my plans for the future. Ultimately ill have a 408 stroker, all forged out. AFR heads, t rex or t rex killer cam (or if something better comes out by then), and a 200 wet shot thats totally hidden. Thats just the basics of the motor. Not to mention the fully built tranny, driveshaft, 12bolt, etc etc etc etc
