I'm doing a sniper efi on this build. I haven't used it before, but have heard good things. I hope the CCP tank doesn't sit too low. I did a 5" drop in the back so should be okay.

My buddy was saying those are good. He's done a few and also the FI tech ones.

Let's go! This truly is my passion!

I'm also restoring a 69 camaro.

It's been a huge project. It's almost done too so I'll have time😁

Camaro is looking good. I like those gauges..trying to decide on ones for my big block 77 shortbox. I've worked on a few drag car builds, but it was a long time ago. You got way nicer tools than what we had!

Thanks. The guage set is really nice, I'm happy with it. Need to figure out how I want to setup the C10. Was looking at this:

Nice !! Having the car rotisserie is a big asset and well worth the outlay in the long run when doing such work .

The blueprint engine came late today. It is advertised at 430Hp. The Dyno sheet says 449HP and 488TQ. Can't wait to get this thing fired up. But first need to build it out.

Also got the doors bodyworked and ready for epoxy. Just need to finish the front grill panel and it will be ready for paint in about a week or 2 if I can get the floor and firewall done.

LOL.. I hate me too sometimes. My motivation on this it high and want to get it knocked out. My Camaro is going on 3.5 years now and I didn't want this to. Eime that since my so e will be driving it as his main vehicle. I want him to have ti.e to practice before he gets his license.

Yesterday was officially 2 months since the teardown of this project. Got the truck moved out of my wife's garage and into mine.

Yesterday we got the exhaust installed, kickdown cable, lokar shifter assembly and tested the wiring for it.

Today we will clean and organize the shop again.
