    Been working on this off and on for a year or so. Started with a 396 Big block and 4 speed. The car seemed to run OK but was not what I was after.
    Sold the engine and transmission and bought a wrecked 2001 Z28 and installed the LS1 and 6speed. Buying a complete car was the way to go used all kinds of parts from it.
    Found a great buy on a new LS3 525hp new crate engine and got it before I ever drove the LS1.
    Rebuilt the front suspension with tubular A arms and C5 spindles, Viking coil over shocks and 1.25 sway bar and new steering box. Used brakes from a C5 Z06. I 4 linked it in the back and used the 4th gen brakes. Put xxr 527D wheels 18/9 255/40front and 18/10.5 295/40rear
    The car was HOT ROD black when i got it which was hiding a couple of bad places had to put on a door skin and a patch panel. I worked all last summer on painting the car. Ended up going with Audi nardo gray.

    I've got a full front bumper with fangs.Also have most of the parts to do a full RS conversion. I think I'll just do the front bumper.
