What's up everybody? Been a while but couldn't stay away. I got me a LS powered coupe about a yr ago from a member on here on trade. Here is the story behind the car.

I traded it in Nov of last yr for a 99 f250 I had. Truck was in ok shape so me and the guy agreed to trade. I pulled the f250 from Baton Rouge la to Atlanta ga and made the swap. Car had all the good swap parts, 1 7/8 dynatech headers, aje kmember, fully built rearend, and many other great parts so I did the swap. Motor was a low mileage 5.3 that the guy told me had a small comp cam with 241 heads. Took the car to the track and got it down to 12.4 @111 the first time out. Second time out it rolled a rod bearing. But Ok no big deal still happy cause all the great parts on the car and I had owned the truck for several yrs so I still got a great deal on the trade.

Well this is were it got real for me. I tore the car down to a shell and started over. 10pt cage, thru the floor subframes, changed the fuel system to aeromotive eliminator pump with 10an line to the front and 6an back. Put a standalone fuel system up front with a holley blue for the nitrous. Changed all the interior to black with Scott rod rear delete in the back and kirkey sets up front.

The motor is a 370ci 6.0 with a set of lightly ported 317's and a Futral cam. Super Vic intake done by Larry meaux and a 4150 pro systems carb. Only factory wiring left is the headlight and taillight harness. I put all leash electronics in the car to control it all and built a control board for it.

Been to the track 3 times and each time the car has gone quicker. Started out with 10.8 at 124 and now we down to 10.57 at 128. We i dynoed it last week and found a few issues with the carb that was holing it back so we headed back this Sunday to give it another shot. Hoping to get some high 10.3's low 10.4's at 130.

First pic is the day I got it. The guy I got it from is a member here. His name is Hal.
