    Beautiful car. The paint work came out very nicely. You have a fine car. Enjoy the moments with the car, the car will treat you well.

    FITech is up and running..........Starts on the first turn of key,and runs like never before with the Holley 770 Street Avenger on it. Still got some tweaking to do on it. Like find a carb spacer or a different fitting for the drop down air cleaner to fit. I have a slight off idle stumble,but I know I can tune it some with the IAC adjustments.. I can really feel more power by the seat of the pants feel.. My motor guy wants to put on dyno and see the after effects of EFI vs the carb that was on it.

    Sure will after it gets some fine tuning done.Almost there.
    Swapping out the speedometer gears now to get closer to correct MPH on speedometer-right now I'm 10MPH off.

    Almost done with the EFI set up and console shifter is done. New speedometer gears are installed,need to test the MPH against the RPM readings. Will use a MPH app on IPhone for accuracy. As it is accurate for my other vehicles.
    Next will be adding a removable steering wheel.
    Got the short hub adapter and quick release on order. Got to pick a steering wheel to fit the Camaro. Any ideas?
    Here is the short hub adapter:
