    I know how you feel, I went thru this phase after the headers. Thats why I've been so against a cam.

    The black wheels look good in person, cause I was against them at first.

    Oh hey, look in the Southern forum at the car show I listed and see if you can make it up.

    The power steering pulley: one of the worst GM thoughts for the Ls1 engine. At least on the Lt1 they had (3) holes in the pulley so you could remove it as a complete unit and not have to rely on a puller tool...


    Also, why did you go painted on the LT's and not stainless or ceramic coated? Them puppies are gonna rust once the paint burns off...

    it was all that fit into the budget. i planned on getting some ceramic coated ones but i decided to use the extra money towards port and polishing the 243 heads

    You can probably get J.R. to powder coast them for you if and when you take them back off.
