Yes I have a 4 inch cowl hood that I got from jason at st. And my question is why not? And I mostly gutted the interior so yes I have a lot of stuff for sale. I'm going to put some light weight carpet, a competion engineering steering colum kit, kirkey seat, chris alston 8 point moly cage (yes they sell it). I'm trying to get a pressure washer to clean the engine bay and paint it. Should have the motor in soon.

Can't wait

I can't wait to see it when its done. I've been thinking about this for my own car since no one around here has done anything like that.
More power to you when you get it done.


By the way for more tips on ls1's if you think you might need them. Try
