I SO wish I could have been there.

Speaking of because racecar, the SS will be a track-only car for the near future (insurance reasons). I expect to be shooting for 9's in the Spring (with new 9" rear and Methanol).

So, since I still need a fun car to zip around in, I picked up this from my dealer (www.adventurecars.com, same Chevy place working on my car):

2003 Zed-4, 143k miles, $8k.

I figure I could run the TxMile in that, maybe 155. LS3 swap? Because racecar.

No. John Lee, my builder and tuner and former APF, now works at Grimes Automotive in Woodstock. You might try him there, but I don't think he's taking on new work. He still tunes a bit for other shops. You might try Vengeance.

Their shop was leased and the owner sold it, so he had nowhere to go.

But John Lee is a great builder/tuner, and Grimes is one of the premier engine builders in the area. I know they do the motors for many big shops.
