I can appreciate any build when it's being done right, even if it does have a V8 in it. :P

I'm curious about your rust repair. Did you box in a new seat mount and replace the whole section?
My project surprised me with rusted out floor pans and I'm not sure how to go about fixing them.

Good luck with your build, should be a beast.

Are you doing any oiling upgrades, so many of the budget LS/LM builds spin bearings because the gto oil pan can't keep the oil on the pickup.

As for reliability, anything can be reliable you just have to take precautions. No one motor is more reliable than another if you do it right, especially the Chevy v8s due to their oiling issues. (the 7m does not apply to this...hahaha!)


And Jon! Post pics of your sick graffiti livery dude, the people need to see that shit!!!

well i cut the floor out first, welded a new piece of metal in there, then took a nut, welded it to piece of 1/8in with a hole in it,
welded that to a piece of 2x2" square tubing, then bolted my seat in... then bolted my seat to my bracket and tacked it..

i dont know dude, i mean ive talked to a few people that are ls geeks, they said if they can do wheelie stands and not loose oil, then i should have no problems
and then it was brought up that non dry sump corvetts can do whatever it wants to do with out any oil starving problems... but i do know of a trap door system
that i can get

Yeah i hear ya, but wheelies wouldn't be an issue, it's the sudden side to side transitions that occur while drifting that really mess these up. If youcan get a trap door setup that would def help you in the long run. A feller I know went through two long blocks this past season due to oiling issues.
