Modifications

Drivetrain
Big changes here - with the help of my Friend Jeff Smith we installed a modified LS5 big block making 527 hp @ 5800 rpm / 581 ft lb @ 3900rpm we did a roller cam swap which turned into a series of articles written for Power and Performance news.

http://www.powerperformancenews.com/tech-articles/installs-and-builds/how-to-retrofit-a-hydraulic-roller-cam-in-a-big-block-chevy/

In the end the final choice wasn't the cam that arrived in the first article, the final cam achieved 527 hp and 581 ft'lbs.
We've since added a Holley sniper Fuel injection system to it.

Cleaned up the interior, added gauges, a radio delete plate purchased from a member
