    You are putting all those parts in an LS engine??? I put that stuff in an LT1 but the LS engine's alREADY are fast with great HP in stock form from the factory. Depending on which LS you get you can go all the way to 638 HP STOCK!

    You are building a KILLER!!! I had a similar GMcar a couple of years agoA opel Omega with a 6cylinder, hopped up turbo diesel. It too was a sweet car, but your Holden is absolutley outstanding! I really love the mods you have done to it. And with that setup under the hood i doubt it will even touth the ground at all.. Please, keep us updated?

    Looks better in blue. Better contrast among the parts.
