Where you are doing the 427 are they replacing the factory valves and push rods? The Vette guys are having issues with the hollow stems breaking. I'd hate to see all that work take dump on you due to a bad part.

Looking forward to the final product.

I know the push rods are being hardened. I do think the valves are being replaced, but on that one i'm not 100% going to double check. Thanks for the note.

I was going to do the SJM Afterburner Tailights but have decided to go with Ofer's Gen5Diy Afterburners. They are similar in style.

Here are a couple pics from his site...

Yeah man, I remember you at the Fburg meet. Can't forget the kind Zaino goodies. Thanks for the compliment on the car. I'm hoping we do another big meetup again like last year. That was good times.

Got the hardened rear diff back with a Posi mod, Detriot TruTrac Diff, GM 3.91 Gears, and the BMR bushings.



Also, looks like the crate arrived...

you said the hood on BOT is an SLP RTM and so I looked for it on their website but it is different.. the scoop on yours is thinner and closer to the front end.. I like the one you have better.. any idea why? and what about those round chrome exhaust tips exit.. where did u get'em? thanks.

Hey Breathtaker - It is the SLP ZL RTM Hood. You will not find this for sale individually because its part of their ZL specialty car package and is different from their aftermarket hood. The same with the rear diffuser, its an option on their ZL cars and was made based off the camaro concept. Everyone and then SLP will sell a "blem" ZL item on their eBay page.
