OK... seems Camo really wanted to know why we used a LS1 since I put that in earlier. I changed the post. I will say this. The block started out as a LS2 block. Turn Key has made some changes to the motor. We are not going to tell what. Lets just say it should scream.

Fire???? Down here??? My firefighting days are over... This place don't burn at all. Bella's doing awesome, popping teeth now. Anyway, back to the buggy (I refuse to call them cars), interested to see how this is going to go...

And you do smell a little.

This pics shows how far back the engine will sit. The tube going over the engine is the dash bar.

We made these stands to hold the axles on the jig table. They turned out to be real handle on the fab table to position them while welding the link mounts to the housing. They are simple to make. If you need a set let me know and we can make them for you. I can make them to your spec also. The ones pictured are for 3.5" axle tubes and are 6 inches from the table to the bottom of the axle tube.

Dan

So do you plan on selling this as a shippable u-weld kit? Say just the plate for the framerails and leave the rest up to the builder?

I have not considered it or really even thought about it. Never know we might decide to do something similar to it.
