Default 69 Camaro with procharged ls7

I dropped by my motor shop and my motor is coming together. It's a procharged motor wet sump motor. I'm going to run a D1SC with the helical gear set. Mild cam so it's hopefully somewhat of a sleeper when it's idling. Wiseco pistons, K1 rods, ls7 heads with upgraded valves/springs. Fast 102 intake. Goals for boost are about 15lbs, we'll see depending on how much the motor makes on the dyno NA. Goal is 900hp hopefully a bit more. Taking a page from the ls9 and going with piston squirters. The car is a 69 camaro with a T56 from D&D. Short block is being assembled just waiting on heads. Woo hoo!!!

Just saying


Motor is done, just waiting to install, wire and plumb the d1sc/supercharger.

sub frames burner in. Cage should be done in the next week or so.


setting ride height on chassis table


BFG 345/30/18s on 18x12s



Couple of shots prior to tear down



Shock bar tacked in


Wheels before I powder coated/widened

Thanks quick disclaimer, chassis work is being done by Henn Racing Technologies. I wish I could take credit for it but my welds look like birdshit.

Car will be for the street. I will make some passes but mainly a cruiser. As far as weight, it's comparable to a fiber glass hood, definitely much lighter than stock.
