Default 1000hp build?

Hey guys I am looking at turning my 2002 6 speed into a street/strip car. I recently got the itch to get back into drag racing and don't really have room in the garage for a fifth car. I will not be building the engine myself as I want to be sure it is built properly and not be second guessing myself. I am in South Carolina so are there any shops I should check out and give a call to talk over a build with? I know vengeance down in GA but are there any others?

I've specialized in high powered forced induction Vettes for many years now. I am personally engaged throughout the build from end to end. I do all the custom fabrication, design and tuning. I remain involved in the engine builds to the degree that I will personally check the parts measurements down to the ten thousandth of an inch, the same as my engine builders. I also have a nice stash of parts for such a build, ready to go including a F1X with bracket, a few engines, numerous pairs of various CNC ported heads and even a few built TR6060's ready to go. If you look at the stickies above, you'll see that I pioneered the TR6060 swap. Let me know if I can help.

I'll second that. Bret guided me through building an LS2 for my goals and he is currently helping me work through a Haltech Elite 2500 install and tuning. He is the guy to go with if you want it done right.

Joe, does that mean your car is the current record holder for the standing half mile?

That's fast indeed. I was asking since I had seen LSXperts run 229 and change. I don't think it was a WGF event either. I'm about to get my car back on the lift and see where it ends up. Lots of work to do.

That thing is so far from a streetcar it's not even funny. I put almost 10k miles on my car since last year. Full interior, ac, etc.
