Thanks for all the kind words guys! It's been a helluva build and it's only gettin better.

I'm about to start pullin the 3.0 to dump in a 351w (Still playing with bore/stroke/ratio/crank/rods to figure out if I wanna go 393, 408, 417, or 427)

Lookin like it's gonna get a 2wd C6, and a divorced Dana 20

I've got a 14 bolt I just need to pick up and I'm lookin for a Chevy Dana 60 front still.

Oh it never ends.

Well, considering yers is a little shorter, we'll start with pebbles and curbs and taking good lines to get out of the horribly designed gas station parking lot.

I crawled a local trail here in a AWD Subby Waggy, gone mudding in an Infinity G20, and Took a Mazda 323 up an rti ramp a lot further then any of us thought it would go or wanted it to go.

You can do what ever you put your mind to.

i once drove my Audi A4 that was dropped 2", through a wash because the CHP closed the highway to the mountain. we got to the rental shop and they asked how we got there. i told them i drove thru the wash. they said alot of desert trucks get stuck out there all the time and where amused we made it there in a car.

its all in the driver.
