    Top pic= little hood springs=fiberglass cowl hood. That's my guess.

    What were the numbers?

    I have all that minus the turbo, I did get a custom cam ground though so who knows. I'd like to see how yours does with the LS3 top end on it.

    550 crank hp = easy with an lq4 and ported heads
    550 wheel hp = pretty much impossible. Heck, even 500 wheel hp is nearly impossible with 364 cubes and low compression.

    He is talking wheel hp.

    sorry guys for the delay first trip to the dyno had issues!!! took a week to work over the problems and found it. I ordered a 10 micron pre pump filter and was starving my pump badly. I replaced it with the correct 100 micron and boy did the car respond

    Car made 623hp to the wheels and 590tq
    for the people who said I wouldn't happen eat your hearts out!!!
