Getting Ready For My 2SS/RS, RJT

I have been sitting at 3000 for almost four weeks so I had the garage repainted, including the floor. Since I am a batchlor I had the garage finished to match my recently remodled master bedroom and bath! The new Camaro will be parked next to my black 1996 Impala SS. So now my 2004 Silverado 2500 HD Duramax will be forced to sit out in the weather.

Did you do your floor one color or did you do something like checkerboard? That is what I will do in mine soon.

What kind and what brand name of paint did you use? I'd like to do the same to my garage.

I have not taken any pics yet...I will try to get some and post soon. I am working on a collection of banners and posters for the walls. My contractor used Farrell-Calhoun paint on the walls & ceilling and Devoe Epoxy on the floor. The colors are in two shades of light gray. The ceilling and trim is a semigloss, so light it is almost off white in color. The walls are satin light gray and the floor was color matched the same color. Also upgraded the lighting. Installed six new flourescent fixtures with 5000K lamps...I can see again! That will make it nice for working, polishing, etc. when the weather is bad.

Detailed Performance Mods

Garage Pics: I will be taking photos and posting as soon as I get all the new banners in and up on the walls.

I moved to 3300 last week, so I spent the afternoon at Futral Motorsports ordering all the parts for the LS3-427 build. So here goes:

-New GM L92/LS3 Block
-Callies 4.125 Crankshaft
-Callies Connecting Rods
-Diamond Flat Top Pistons w/ Mahle Rings
-LS2 Heavy Duty Roller Timing Chain Set
-11.8:1 Compression Ratio
-L92 Heads Ported & Polished by Larry Meaux Racing 340I/245E CFM
-Manley Hollow Stem Intake Valves
-Manley Sodium Filled Exhaust Valves
-Manley Pushrods and Dual Springs
-Yella Terra Ultra Light Shaft Mounted 1.7 Rockers
-Custom Cam by Cam Motion. 236I/250E @ .598/.630 - 114 LSA
-Fast 50 lbs./hr Fuel Injectors
-Snow Performance Stage 3 Water/Methanol Injection System
-Snow Performance Safe Injection (will be tied into MSD Timing Twister)
-MSD Timing Twister
-MSD 8.5 mm Plug Wires
-Yank SS3200 Torque Converter
-B&M Tranny Fluid Cooler
-American Racing Headers w/ High Flow Cats & X-Pipe
-Magnaflow Axle-Back Exhaust
-Custom Cold Air Intake by ADM and Allan Futral
-Port & Polish Throttle Body
-Custom Tune w/lots of Dyno Time
-And of course, all the usual Blueprinting, Machine Work, Honning, Balancing, Cleaning, Etc.

Stay tunned for more. We are looking for 650 Crank HP.
We will be photo and documenting everything in detail.

The original motor will be available for purchase when done. We plan to have the motor finished before the new Camaro arrives. If so, it should be in the shop for only a week.

This car will be a daily, fair weather driver. She will make a few trips to the drag strip and go to lots of shows in the Baton Rouge - New Orleans area.

That sounds so KILLER Gib!! I am very interested in following this thread.
Please keep us posted through the build with updates and pics.
I can only bet how awesome this beast is going to be on the street. Tame at idle, but a M-O-N-S-T-E-R at WOT!! Very nice.
Will it be running on pump gas? I assume so, what octane as well?
GOOD LUCK with everything.
