    In the process of an LS1 conversion S-10


    back in the summer when it only had a 2.2 in it. just got my license and built the whole thing.


    My four link setup with the huge c-notch so can eventually tuck some 28in. slicks and still lay frame.


    This is where it lies right now except now i have the motor and trans mocked up in place waiting for all my other parts to be paid for. but i dont think its bad for a 16 year old kid with a part time job, bought it when i was 14 and i guess its just natural to me.


    Heres the first motor i built, for my dads 80 Z28. 355, Dart 225 heads, 565 Lunati cam, Victor Jr. intake, ect. it runs pretty good never had a problem with it and it could easily be a daily driver.


    Here is My brothers Z28 after i put a procharger on it and threw some slicks on it to see what it would do with a 10 bolt and a six speed. best time i beleive was around 11.80 dynoed around 500 RWHP.

    I am now re-building the entire car with the best parts money can buy. all racing fully adjustable spohn performance suspension and BMR K-member, LQ1 fully adjustable Coilovers, 396 LS1 that should make around 550 or better RWHP, TH400, strange 12 bolt, and the list goes on but i figure in the future when i take this up as my career ill look back at how much i learned from him spending his hard earned money and then trusting me to build him a 10 second car. But after i graduate i plan on going to either Wyotech Blairesville, PA or the University of NorthWestern Ohio for High Performance Engine Building and Maching, and Chassis and Suspension Building. Anyway thats my story pretty long but just trying to get my name out there for the future. Thanks and Leave some comments or send me a PM if you wanna know more about me, the S-10 or the Z28.
    Thanks, Kevin

    Looks good dude. Wish I knew how to do all that. I'm a clusterfuck when it comes to wrenchin'. I'm better off not touching anything. Sucks though because I like working on my own cars.
