Thanks dude, it was pretty messy so gotta work on cleaning it up!!!

Took the intake tube off. I'll be taking off the yellow powdercoat and polishing it to match my runners. I'm hoping to have it finished up by this weekend. I'm also relocating the heater hoses and hiding my coil packs. I ordered a set of carbon fiber valve covers as well! Lots of goodies on the way!

I think I found a set of valve covers I like. They are made in house by Scooters Performance. From what I have read on their website, they have not had any issues with leaking and utilize the stock seals. I'm going to give the company a call tomorrow to get more info. They offer them for BBC, SBC, and LSX application. I need to make sure they offer a warranty against any possible leaks or defects.

If everything goes as planned, I'll be ordering these, and they weigh in at about 1 lb each! I'll also be ordering a coil relocation kit to hide the coil packs (to the frame rail), as well as call up Caspers Electronics to get a custom harness made to run behind the engine/

Here's a pic of the valve covers


These are going to look sooooooooooooo badass with the carbon fiber intake that already installed.

..............still looking for a tuner that I trust to tune my car.........the search continues............

Thanks!

I dont think the white is illegal, they turn on with the running lights, but still blink amber for emergency lights and blinkers.

Here's the link for the type of bulb you need. I dont remember what type of bulb, but Sylvania should have all the information for what type of bulb.

just looked it up, thanks for the heads up!

Guess the TRON Camaro made another major website! Discovery Channel!

http://dsc.discovery.com/cars-bikes/...mkcpgn=fbdsc17

By the way, they didn't ask if they could use the photo. Not the best picture and certainly not the right info in the article. I like how the website says 'Electric Exotic Blue' built this incredible Camaro, not even close!

thanks! the metallic sparkle really catchs in the sun!

so.....got some good news!!!! my car is getting tuned on the 29th by a private tuner is Sacramento. I was at a car show this past weekend and met a guy who has a rat rod, but dropped in a 440 LSX with twin 80mm turbos. He's making 1036rwhp on 18psi. There was also a 69 camaro with a 427 LS3 and 3.6L KB blower. From what I've heard, he knows his stuff inside and out.

I'll let everyone know how the tune goes, as this might be awesome for NorCal to have a knowledgable tuner!
