  1. You hit the nail right on the head. The main gains from long tubes is low end torque and it changes your power band completely having more usable power throughout. If chasing numbers is the goal then long tubes are not worth the money but if getting the most performance out of your LS motor is the goal then there is no other way to go.
  2. These are Custom built Door Sill Plates with the Hybrid Z logo. I had 2 sets made but only used one. They were never fitted on the car just put in place without bolts for taking the attached picture. Stainless hardware is included. Please feel free to ask any questions. 832-840-0605 $100 Shipped

    Thanks I will have it on the road this year. Had a set back and it's going back to the body shop in May to be repainted. It bummed me out to the point that I have not touched the car in months. I decided to go with the Odyssey Battery 34-PC1500. It had good reviews and I can get it locally if anything goes wrong.

    alternator to starter wire gauge

    I ran a #4 from the battery to the starter then a #4 from the battery to a distribution block. A #4 from the distribution block to the alternator. I used milspec wire for all that.

    Those axles do look stout, how much torque are they rated to?

    After 6 years it's alive. I could not upload the video but will try again later. IMG_0519.MOV

    The dash is in, it still needs to be wired but we are getting one step closer.

    Thanks Richard, I get a lot of inspiration from you guys. Looks like we will be starting the motor this weekend then I should be on the road by the end of October if everything works as expected.

    Thank you, It's a K&N Air Filter RC-5171 it flows 1654 cfm and my motor requires 1038 cfm according to all the calculations we have done. It is a pretty good size but I wanted to make sure I was covered in case I increase the Nitrous shot. I angled it downwards a little in order not to obstruct the radiator too much.
  13. Great build, looks really clean.

    Thanks Guys, We are moving forward again. After numerous attempts we finally got the cold air intake completed. The goal was to make a one piece intake without any welds showing. We made one out of aluminum first and just could not make it smooth enough around the welds to chrome without compromising the integrity of the welds. Not to mention the 4 inch tubing did not line up very good especially if the weld is close to a bend. There seemed to be a step that even though was not noticeable in raw aluminum it would have been magnified once chrome plated. So we decided to go back to the drawing board and make it out of stainless. The guys at Prospeed Autosport formerly D3 Performance did an amazing job welding the intake and the chrome platers gave it the finishing touch. We put the Air Temperature Sensor as far away from the engine bay as possible in order to minimize heat soak and added a 6AN bung for the oil catch can system. I also worked closely with K&N to ensure we have the right size filter for this motor. The last thing I want is for the filter not to flow enough air for the motor and I have seen that numerous times. People using a tiny filter on a big power motor. We also made a bracket which we powder coated black that attaches to the front of the air filter to keep it from moving around. We should be able to fire it up in the next week or so. Can’t wait to hear it run for the first time in years.
