Doing the Torquehead conversion, It will have a LS computer and coils on the valve covers. I bet most wouldn't notice it's a LT4.....

Guess I'll be staying on the mountain.

We certainly do not want to leave anyone out, when we discussed this with Atco it was narrowed down so it didn't get crazy, but it does specifically say "LT" which both of you have. I have no problem with you guys racing in the series. I would be fine with all years of Vette's like the Corvette challenge was based on, but we also wanted to include our Camaro/Caddy/Pontiac customers and then how far back do we go with that? We didn't want full race 68 camaro's with big blocks dominating the 8.50 class when most LS/LT builds are either struggling to get there or on a small tire and not consistent enough to compete with that. We had to draw a line somewhere, sorry if it came off unfriendly.
