Nice gains.

Thanks for your help. I have though about switching to a rotofab but like having the chrome intake tube as I will be doing some shows and want to keep up with the theme. I will try to get some when I get the car back. Will be next weekend before I can drive up there to pick it up.

CAI, Inc makes one with a chrome looking polished tube, i think its coated so it doesnt look as shiny, but still looks chrome.

The entire box and lid are also made out of same material

I may do something in the future but the K&N is working fine right now and looks good so its ok....Its not my track car. bought it to drive on nice days and turn heads which i think it will do with the addition of the polluter cam Tick Performance installed

Yeah Trey,
That is awsome....Man, it is looking great....love all the personal touches...It will pay dividends!!!

SS Headrests look outstanding....

I have all the pens to do my stitching, red and blue...but I guess I am unsure 'cause if I don't like it after it is done...well I don't have to tell you where I would be without a paddle!!!
I always thought ours would look good doing the stitching like the 45th Anniversary....

Hey Kurt...thanks for dropping in. Congrats again on COTW. I appreciate it. I still have a bunch of parts to install...just waiting for it to warm up a bit. The stitching was definately a task...just take your time. I think you will like how it turns out. I know I did. Its little things like that, that will stand out. It would definately go with your theme...I have a black, blue, polished, carbon fiber theme going lol.

What do you mean no one else likes it?!?!? That sound is out of this world Trey...Let me say this, "It sounds at idle just like our '68. If we had them side-by-side and our eyes closed, I doubt I could tell the difference"....

That ABM has "AWESOME" written all over it...and I am not saying that just because I love ABM.....You have done wonders for her...

COTW has to be right around the corner...put in for it again....I am going to put in a plug for you "ma man"...

Nicely Done...Kurt ABL99...

My dad has a 69 that he is going to start restoring soon. I appreciate it and if you want to put a good word on for me for a future COTW I am all for it lol

I know what you mean...I keep pulling it up on my phone to listen lol. I cant wait for next weekend when I can go pick it up. I am dying to drive it. Well if you ever want to take a vacation down here in Myrtle Beach, SC I am more than glad to meet up. The video pretty much has what is done to my car in the description tab. Its an ls3 polluter cam. The springs, retainers, and pushrods were swapped as well. Its stock internal other than that. Has a K&N intake with a ported tb and 1 7/8in headers and 3 inch exhaust by xspower. If you have any other questions just let me know. My car was the first for Tick performance to install the ls3 polluter and they were very impressed with how it performed on my car. As far as Indy...I would love to go but more than likely I wont be able to. Thats just so far away and getting time off is hard at my job.

I drove it home Sunday...its was raining pretty hard all the way home so I didnt get to play much with it yet. But I love the sound....now I have to save up to do the 3.91 gear set. I thought I would be ok not doing it but now I can tell I want them cause I know it will compliment the cam well. So got to save up again

What's up Trey. I could not help myself again...I had to listen to that beast one more time. Might not be a good thing for me to have--I would be tempted to fill up the tank, fire her up and just sit behind and listen in wonderland until the tank runs dry...

I am going to continue to bump this build for COTW until I am "blue in the face"....

Yes, it is THAT good!!..

Well I will take all the help I can get my friend I was worried a little bit at first but I am happy that I went ahead and did it. It sounds great and the power increase is an added bonus. I dont think you will go wrong as long as you go with a shop that is known for good work and stand behind it. I say go for it
