Paul, its not a mass produced crate motor... So hopefully no run away horses.

Just got an email from my engine guy, and with the cam and intake he suggested it would be a solid 460 - 475 hp. Which is about 400 more than what it had! So I am going to be happy with that

I am getting the Turbo700 built in the states to suit. I know not the strongest choice, but I want the overdrive as ultimately she is just a cruiser. A 4l80 will require some cutting to make fit and is costly. The 200r4 is also an option, however the lack of them in Aus makes me wary.

Thinking about 3.55's in the rear.

3.55 sounds good, especially with overdrive, why not do panel and paint yourself :P

Mike... you know I m useless.

Going to run a 4L80E.

So she should be a solid tough cruiser.

Got a guy for paint and panel, and will hopefully get it in for a start at the end of July.

Yeah, come on Nate.. Haven't seen you here much lately.. I see your sig has changed, but that's either because you've given booze up or you've given up trying to give up booze..

Women.. OK, but be careful or you might end up as a gelding.

Here is the update...

Its sitting in storage. Rolling shell... No one to do the panel work.

So it can stay there. I am going to Europe for 10 weeks instead.
