Looks like it was a weapon before and going to be even more-so after the rebuild.

Callies make some great stroker stuff aswell, good choice!

Hahah cheers guys the manifold was a bargain picked it up for $900 bucks with a Cnc Billet MSD t/b, cleaned up like new.. In the process of collecting bits for my turbo 400 so if you know anyone who is chasing a manual conversion I got one Wink.. Post some more pics later going to engine builders to slap the crank in and dial the camshaft in Smile Smile Smile

Putting a comp LSR 235-245 113lsa and 623-625 lift, I could have gone bigger but I didn't want to replace my valve springs every 12 months!! It's a really fast ramping can one of the quickest ones they had specs on

Gotta love the LS motors, they look so sexy even when they're stripped bare.

Would love to polish one up and turn it into a coffee table

Started playing with my pro ratchet install yesterday and I have it sitting pretty nice and I'm happy with the location, kinda looks like a factory item. Will look nice sitting in the car once I bolt it up Smile

If I was still living in Deakin St I would have been able to hear it as well lol

Good to see it's all coming together Axle, no joy on that passenger side guard either Sad The only one he has is badly rusted.

Well it's been a few big weeks with tuning and I finally got to race the car at heathcote last friday and it went allot better than we thought it would due to the low power it made on the Dyno which we were sure the large converter and turbo 400 would kill the power figure a fraction. The car ran 11.2 @ 125mph which is that means that the car is pushing 550hp with dead standard heads Smile very happy with how the car ran and considering I'm still running a 3.45 ratio the car will run a 10 second pass easily with the gears and some cnc ported heads..
