Jay, your car is looking really nice! The cover on your firewall that your using to replace your heater box, is that an after market item? If so, what company is that made by?

Its been awhile but Im making some progress again. Here a couple of engine pics with mock up of stainless headers.

This is the ZZ427 crate engine that GM says is 480 hp and 490 tq. I dynoed it last Sat and it made 526 hp and 518 tq.
I changed the oil pan and added a very good Miledon windage tray, used the tri-y headers shown and a 1" carb spacer. Spacer added 10 hp and 9 lbs tq.

There's some TOP-QUALITY worksmanship being poured into this one! Looking awesome! and really interested in the silicon brazing process too... Great idea!

That's a great looking 1969 Camaro; hope to see it up close one day. I know your wife can't wait to drive it and you too. Keep up the excellent work.

I usually check out www.cruisincarolinamagazine.com and

dougseawellperformance.com/ once you go to any of the shows they list, you get plenty of fliers for others.

High Point,NC has one every Thursday which has a large turnout. Of course most if not all start around April.
