Stopped by ARD to take a look at the build, and found Owen porting the heads. The engine bay looks great, and the LSX will hopefully go in by the end of the week.

Sell me your dual tank for the whipple and race gas. Owen hasn't got back to me with a price yet I have called twice in the last two months.

Mine's going back into the car.

His shop has been slammed for the last few months, and from what I saw today it's not getting any better. I'm sure he'll get back to you soon.

Russ - great looking build. Two questions - are you using the standard deck LSx or the tall deck? And, is there a reason behind using an LSx block vice RHS?

Short deck. I got a great deal on it from Polecat who decided to upgrade to the RHS. I was going LSX anyway. I feel safer with iron and can't justify more than twice the cost for the lighter block.

My car wants to be like your car when it grows up.

Damn, I'd love to put a 427 LSX in mine!

Busted! Don't tell my husband. He thinks I'm just considering it.

The eagle has landed! The LSX is in, and they've finished the fuel system. I'm swinging by tomorrow night to take some more pics. We may even get to start her up!

Nice. Maybe if I volunteer for one more deployment, or 2.

Do you have or are you going to the 102MM TB?
