WOW! I can't wait to see that one

The trans is a 4L65.

Here are a few pics of the manifolds I promised a few days ago.

We started the exhaust and are just waiting on a few decisions from the owner on tail pipes/tip location.

Looks awesome!

Do you have to narrow the rearend or can you just take up all that new found space with new rims with different backspacing?

We could use the rear end as is, but we would end up with about an 8" - 9" back spacing on a 12" wheel. The customer wants the deep lip look, so we will be narrowing the rear end accordingly.

It has been a while since I last updated this build. we are now in the assembly stages looking to have it back on the road shortly.

Parts after paint. We went with a dark charcoal on the suspension components to give some contrast from the black frame.
