No to the porter cable, I'll save that till I put Pumpkin back into hibernation for the winter and I'll fix you up when your back.

We did the second trub dump today, everything looks and smells great. October 9th will be the keg it up day along with a taste test. Look's like I'll be doing a 3 tap kegerator build shortly. The current kegerator that's on loan is a energy hog. Found a suitable chest freezzer to build a real nice 3 tap kegerator at Costco today. Full speed a head on that project .

More diff parts rolled in today from Lingenfelter. A little pre-occupied with the kegerator project right now.

Can't wait to see the dif.


I'm following your build closely... you are doing everything I want to do... I'm hoping to build the car to be bullet proof at about 700 to the wheels some day. Then get then engine to a nice safe 630/650 RWHP... and just beat on it..

Can't really ship it, cause it has no preserivatives and must remain chilled.

The last piece of the diff puzzle to order is the Lingenfelter 3:91 gear set and then I have to round up $$$ for the DBA rotors and Pfadt coilovers. The diff, rotors and coilover installation will happen all in one trip to the hoist. Pumpkin probably will not go to Dutchman Customs hoist till Feburary or March.

Were looking at a complete LSA c/w blower from GM for 14k for a build of a 55 Chev. Might be an option down the road for Pumpkin.

Really like this Mast Motorsport option for Pumpkin. Plug and play 650hp NA LSX 454 not much more $$$ then a blower.

Back to reality. Got a nice driving day today which included a trip to Bill's hoist at Ducthman Customs for a oil change, a bolt change on the DSS driveshaft system and clear a few pesky codes. Pumpkin ready to go to dealer for:

Tranny Issue
Oil Leak
Halo Replacement
Wheel Finish Issue

and then winter hibernation for more mod's.
