Thanks Gary & Paul.

Went and and visited the car yesterday. Figured I’d take some pics to share.

And, well... one day soon he’ll start on it...

Any info on that fuel cell? I'm looking to ditch the OEM tanks and go fuel cell in the next year or so.

Powerglide bolted to the back of the engine. Needed to massage the trans tunnel a bit but not too much trouble once you make the decision to jump off the deep end. As for the rear, I'm planning on a custom one off type that, once done, I'll describe it completely.

It's just a basic fuel cell from Summit. I'm planning on running one BMF pump. But, I may switch to a cable drive. I'll have a bulkhead between the trunk and cabin.

And, I just picked up some TFS245 heads. The heads and ProFlo are going to the engine shop today to get port matched.

I also bought a T6 S476/96 from Jose, so, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the T4 I have. I may sell it, or install it in my Avalanche.

Hey Pete,
I can easily set you up with a solid tune for the 12.50 class. 😊

Keep up the good work!

You don't think we can get my Avalanche to run 11.50 with that turbo?
