    They are no name 1 7/8 china headers.

    That trans is from a late 90s Nascar, its entirely custom built inside! Its supposed to be good for 700hp but who knows. I got it from North Carolina

    What rear gear are you running and how do you like the for Speed? If you did it over again would you go with a T56 6-speed?

    Ive got a 3:08 gear, overdrive would be nice.

    Ultimately I built this car for fun, and not practicality. I love knowing that my transmission was in a cup car and has travelled through the southern states at 200mph on ovals. So no, I wouldn't chooose a t56, but for many people that would be a sensible thing to do!

    Everyone tells me to go with a T56 instead of a 4 speed too. My budget allows a 4 speed. Not a T56 right now. Haha

    Awesome vid! Of the many barriers to putting in an LS I'd love to see another on your custom front brackets. I'm considering the swap, but the additional costs of an intake and the front brackets are making me lean away from doing it.

    Are you referring to buying a whole car to swap? Id just go with a bone stock truck 6.0l 2002 and up! It can make more power and is very cheap with all the same tech!
