Default The Grond Chronicles : More Mods (are you taking notes?) [Dialup Anguish]

Well, since there does not seem to be much interest in my stereo install - http://forums.corvetteforum.com/show....php?t=1383391 - I thought it made sense to show some other mods I will be installing shortly.

First up is the LapTrax TracActive Controller Deluxe - http://www.laptrax.com/Products.asp and secondly, a Kenne Bell Boost-a-Pump - http://www.kennebell.net/accessories...boostapump.htm

I desperately need the TracActive Controller because I constantly forget to engage Competition Mode whenever I start Grond, and the BAP is for future boost.

I now have a fuel system, drivetrain, pulley and supercharger that far, far, exceeds my stock engine.

Time for a LS2 stroker

Here are the pics. I will post more pics once I install them.

That is Step 2. Step 1 is relocating my Optima Yellow Top to the rear passenger side bin

Stephen, I have to ask. What will you do with the current engine once you get the 412? Will they take it as a trade or something?

It will be up for sale as a 400rwhp engine, well seasoned, well maintained and with a big cam

Not all appreciate my brand of humour - and certainly not my modifications. My fellow Brits, for example, think I'm a "tosser". Interestingly, none of the ones that say "good job" here on the Corvette Forum defended me on the UK Corvette forum...

Ah, the world is filled with duplicity...

But thanks for the kudos
