    Painless is the company's name. Its the kit for a 86' Vette. The more I think about this, the more I want to put my LS1 in my old car!!! The maroon one you can barely see....

    Thats really good work. I had to look twice before I noticed the struts, then I saw that you had changed the whole front subframe. Nice. I'd like to do that to my 74 camaro one day, If I can ever get back to it. It's been a stalled project for the last 11 years now.
