    Refresh better include these:


    Don't forget to port the heads if need be, and put some better internals in that shit :naughty:

    Oh and very cool and driving the car. So many people have nice old cars and don't do shit with them. Using it for what it was meant to be used for :bowdown:

    Nope. All motor with this setup. I'd like to get it to 650-700whp naturally aspirated. The car needs more chassis work than it does power. Rear G-bar suspension or 3 link, legit big brakes with air cooling from the front spoiler, full cage or just a roll bar,

    If I keep the car long enough and continue to enjoy it as much as I have. I may consider going with a more modern twin turbo setup. I've been offered an LS3 at heavy discount, but at that point, I'll be building the car beyond the point of no return. I'll have more money in it than its worth.

    I'm happy with its current setup, and feel I could sell it right now with a paint job and not lose my ass.

    Some people don't realize the kind of power a Twin Turbo BBC can generate. The car would be worthless at the track.

    More worthless than the car currently is at 450 rwhp. :rofl:

    don't keep track don't care. I can drive to Santa Barbara and back on 1 tank if I keep my foot out of the throttle. Bout 200 miles. So around 12-14mpg on the highway at 4k RPM.

    with a 6 speed the fucker would get a lot better MPG on road trips.
