Our new Bowler Performance Tremec 6-speed is in along with the Quicktime bellhousing. We have it mounted to a mock up LS block and setting in the subframe to determine the driveline angle and also motor location. We have the minitub kit installed and now welding the frame rails in while starting the cage.

Pretty darn cool to watch this thread. Great work. It's amazing for someone like me, lacking your talents, so see just what goes into something like this. It helps me better appreciate a build. Thank you.

Thanks guys. It is a fun project for sure. It if was our only project it would be going a lot quicker... but we have a few other cars in the works while trying to design products.

Our American Racing LSX headers for the 70-81 came in and they look nice! We sat a set of factory heads on the block and started mocking up engine location. Our Holley oil pan also came in so this allows us to place the engine where we want it now. Now that the engine is located we begin to build LS engine mounts and a T56 crossmember.

While we are doing that we also started bending up the cage for the car.
