Hey all as some you know I am currently in Korea, I have been stocking up on parts for the SS. Here is what I just got in the other day Comp Cams 228R and 903 springs! Still waiting on my 7.4" harden push rods from L.E.P my 3000K circle D stall and my new shift kit and billet servos. I have also ordered the new coil covers from Holley and I am going to have them color matched and add either a LS3/LS7 intake and have it color matched as well, Let me know what y'all think. Soon as I get home I will start a build thread. I will post pics of stuff as I get it in.

Also if any of you middle TN guru's want to come help feel free to come on down, Ill provide the beer and food.

its hard to say what I will put to the ground. Realistically I would like to see 440-450 HP to the ground.

I have a lot of stuff left up my sleeve that I need to get done, also going to run a 4:56 gear and do a custom 4link to help hook up. I would like to get into the mid 12's just on motor with out any F/I

It is my DD for now, been talking with the wife and I think I am going to get a 99-2002 Z71 for a DD and keep the SS in the garage :) and just take it out to the strip and to keep the miles off it. That truck has gone from TN to WA state 8 times and hasn't gave us a problem yet. Think with in the next few years I am going to build me a 408 or just do a LSX 427 for it ;)
