    LS7 clutch doesn't mesh well with the LS6 flywheel. so i had to compromise, old clutch, removed the glazing, cleaned it up, put the LS7 clutch material in it and voila! new clutch

    ... so uh if anyone needs an LS7 clutch ...

    lookin sweet i watched a guy detroy a fresh block because he didnt get all the water out of the bolt holes after he pressure washed it! 60 secoonds with a blow gun would have saved him $1200!!! (this was in y2k)

    I've had about 7 people ask to run mine. I'm not racing anything until I have a stronger rear end. So summer maybe. But also, I only race at the track. I can't afford to streetrace and I'd rather leave with proof of runs.
    Yes, I have been at ranken for three years now. The car is still in the backyrd since the water pump is puking so until I'm able to get around on my leg, it'll be in the backyard waiting patiently then it'll be good to go

    And thank you everybody

    i am. it's very unstructured right now ... it's slowly getting better but it's not nearly as good as it could be. i mean, you have to provide 90% of your own work and tools, which isn't a huge deal bc it's a pretttty big commitment but there's no syllabus, no tests, no homework (which don't get me wrong, it's not bad at all!) but it's just not structured. i spent two years in automotive to get there but they now have a fast track test to take to get admitted to the program but it's a stupid basic engines test, we have a kid in my class that's as dumb as a rock when it comes to input/output and EFI/carbs. i'd give the program probably an 85% and an A+ for effort

    I was never really that fussy for white, but when i saw this one i changed my opinion, especially now having seen yours too.I'd say you should go with the stripes.. I was thinking of getting a bird for the hood, actually in the next day or two.. i'll post pics when i get her dun.. if i get too many thumbs down i'll fire it in the garbage.
