    as much as I like 'HSV454' : I think that a VL needs old school power.

    for example:

    Hey not saying a BBC isn't as cool as, just like the new schoolness of the LSx. Anything that will smoke rubber just off idle gets my vote :)

    Hell no to the street car. Too far gone now.

    The big block fits in well compared to a small block, so ITP Racing tell me. Extractors will be 2" and fit in nice and snug. Tunnel has been widened to handle the powerglide. Ass end has everything adjustable including an Anti Roll Bar kit. (Truck no's how that works, but I guess I'm about to find out). 9" by Final Drive Perth and coil overs.

    ITP Racing have been an awesome help in getting this project going. Check them out!!!

    Looking good mate.

    Seeing as you're using and engine mounting plate you can probably cut the engine mounts off the K frame that way whom ever is making the exhaust will have one less obstacle to worry about when routing the primaries :)
