Ok, so Im going to give this build thread a shot. I have tons of pics from the beginning all the way to now when we just got the car finished. Im going to start up loading pics then put a parts list up but Im not real sure how... So if im doing anything wrong or anyone has some advise please speak up. Thanks and here we go...

Its a 2010 SS we got wrecked from an insurance company. There was no point in buying one with warranty when we would be replacing almost every part on the car anyways.

Ran 11.08 with the low boost pully on (11psi) @ the Holly LS Fest last wknd. Had some traction issues... I have a few ideas for the LSX shoot out to get down in the 10s hopefully

Nice, but i think we all know that thing has a lot more potential. I think once you get it broken in and up the boost to around 16-18 maybe even 19psi you will see mid 10's easily.
Traction issues? With the 20's?

Awesome! how much power!? I am looking at doing a 416 stroker with my 2.8KB (probably won't make anywhere near yours)...can't afford any traction mods for a bit so I'll probably end up being a burnout king

Well the plan is to put a 12 or 15 gallon water tank in the trunk full of ice water to cool the blower, my intake air temp is crazy high... Im also going to put a set of V6 brakes on just for the race with a set of 16" drag radials. Plus the small pulley (18psi or so) and some race fuel and see how she does.

It made right around 800 rwhp and 800 rwtq on 11psi and pump gas... Ill keep ya posted when we jack the boost up, shouldnt be a problem to get +900

Here is a Great run of this car that is hysterical if you listen closely... At the end of the run out, the window is rolled down and you can hear on-star's operator checking on him...
