  1. You can use the search function on the NTSB database for accident summaries.. http://www.ntsb.gov/ntsb/query.asp
  2. How about... http://www.fastcarsinc.com/headers.htm Made for a 302/MGB swap...
  3. Not sure how the X15R relates to the 6L80/90E transmissions, but the problem swaping the latter is that the transmission controler module is inside the trans. I haven't seen any of the aftermarket trans controler companies find a way to override or replace it. On the other hand, Speartech now has harnesses for LS1/6L80E and LS7/6L90E installs with GM ECUs. EFI Live appears to have a speed density tune available if you needed to loose the MAF.
  4. As stated above, have a sit down chat with your instructor during your preflight. Something non-confrontational like, "How do I get to the point where you are just telling me instructions instead of showing me?"

  9. Per this article... http://www.automotiverebuilder.com/ar/eb040538.htm Depends on the year..... "GM says you shouldn't bore the cylinders on the '97-'98 blocks more than .004? and recommends not boring the '99 and later ones more than .010?, because the iron liners are pretty thin to start with and they're serrated on the outside, too, so there's not very much material left to bore out. " Definitive answer (along with 1000 opinions) could probably be found at LS1Tech.com

  11. As Airjockey indicated, if you do this, approach it from a hobby or educational standpoint, not a profit goal. A good , current, case in point a single engine Navion... 4000 hours of work, 190K invested.. Offered at 119K. http://www.aso.com/i.aso3/aircraft_view.jsp?aircraft_id=102967 If you look on the For Sale page of the Twin Navion link you had, most of the twins are offered for MUCH less.. http://twinnavion.com/forsale.htm Creating a group to purchase the plane & finance the restoration is a good idea, but a hard sell with those kind of financial numbers. You might a
  12. Contact http://www.navion.com/ & see if they're interested. If not, ask them how much it would cost to resurect & rebuild a rare aircraft that's been sitting for 20 years. Make sure you have the paramedics ready with O2 & a defibrillator, 'cause it's going to be a very BIG number...
