I'll be glad when I can clean this all up and get it out of the dust and dirt. The sanding of the primer is like a magnet and just gets everywhere! Have to do something with the air intake yet also. A trip to Spectra's website should solve that .

Looks like it was meant to be there.

Thanks, No its not it came From GM new to Turn Key Engine in Cal. They did some head work, hot camed it and a few other tweaks. They also did all the front engine stuff,pulleys water pump, etc. to fit the Camaro. They claim over 500 HP.
The trans. is a Tremec 600 5 speed, Hyd clutch, a custom drive shaft and all going to a Moser 12 bolt 3.73 rear. The car is sitting on Hotchkis sport susp. with there tublar A arms

Yep thats the idea. Some folks like to hide everything and do covers or what not. I'm not to big a fan for that look. Looks toyish to me but to each there own! I just dont want to hide all the work that went on under the hood or have to take off fancy covers to fix something.My Idea was to make that LS3 look like it came in the car

Sounds awesome. Good luck with it and I'd love to see some pics once it's done. I've been drooling about a very similar setup, but with a complete suspension redo dropping the front 2" and the rear 1.5".
