True that. I guess thats one good thing that came out of something else being wrong.

SO I finally got it back last night. Everything seems to be running ok. It's still pulling low on the dyno, but the engine and transmission issues seem to have been fixed.

It no longer creeps backward in neutral which is no longer embarassing! I still have to drive it a little more to get a better feel for it. But I do feel the extra power now that its running on all 8 cylinders.

Owen spent alot of time (2 weeks) and i'm sure alot of his own money to make the situation right. At one point he had to send the heads off to a machine shop for something. He also replaced quite a few engine internals. So my hat off to him for taking care of the bad work I had originally got. I will say i'm glad I decided to let him take care of it. Anywhere else would have been a boat load of money.

Good to hear and good on ARD... sounds like a lot of work went into the fix.

I know you're relieved to have it back...

I'd take the car to the track and see what it runs. That would tell you a lot.

Heads/Cam/LS3 conversion should put up some real solid times (and fast trap speeds) at the track (if the mods were done correctly).

That's good to hear Nate. I like the fact that the problems you had weren't even related to the work he originally did, but he fixed them anyway. That's what I like about working with him.
