All these LS swap builds and yet the guy that keeps winning is a stock class car with a jeep motor. Just saying.

Looks like a bullet proof build.

Making the decision to steer away from the all mighty 4.0 liter wasn't easy. That motor has put us on the podium in every race in our class. It has even finished 42nd in 2012 KOH main race. This change is what we think it is going to take to be competetive in this class.

After trying to catch you guys last year, we new that we had to do something to stay in the hunt. Thanks for the help at your shop the other day. You guys really helped me wrap my mind around what I want to do with my steernig.

Actually we swapped in a LS3 before this years race. Since we were running in the Mod class we could. We hurt the stroker Thanksgiving.

Made some progress this weekend. Finished stripping her down and installed a Bomber Fab alternator set up. One of our goals is to get her down to 4,000 lbs.

Looks like I'll be looking for a new tuning partner. If all goes well. You'll be tuning on the lake bed....the day before the race

See you tomorrow and I'll let you buy me a beer.

Wheelbase will stay at 108". The LP60 worked before with the 4 speed Atlas and 7" up/7" down travel. Changing out the 4 speed for the 2 speed will make the rear D-shaft about 4" longer. The LP60 will be the next project along with a few other adjustment on the rear of the car, but that will have to come after 2014 EMC.

Looks great so far! Any idea what it weighed before the current rebuild started?

looks like a fun build, cant wait to see how much of the jeep is replaced by the time your done. its about as easy to just build another rig sometimes.
