Hey guys thought id do a build thread for my new car

Bought the car to turbo and drag it/power skid it


Build specs
Stock LS1
Will recieve turbo cam and valve springs

Ase T800 turbo kit
Will get ID1000 injectors to run on E85
Tuning via HP Tuners
Spooled diff with either 3.7s or 3.9s

Have spent only half a day working on it, removing old extractors and getting rid of Aircon related components.

Plans are to build it, tune it and race it all myself.

Bit of an update.
Aftermarket fuel rails and 60lb injectors are installed.
Undercar VCM surge tank with 2 044's installed and fuel tank refitted.
1/2" hardline feed and 3/8" hardline return all fitted up.
Sump has been drilled and tapped and a fitting has been installed.

Waiting on some exhaust heat wrap to wrap my manifold and dump pipe so they dont fry everything in the engine bay
.
