Update.

ARP looked after me with over 300 bolts plus washers and nuts for my build. Almost every bolt will be 12 point high tensile and polished.

Got a good couple of days in over the long weekend.

Cheers,

Ben

8 stack is from Shauns Custom Alloy. He is doing a few other bits for me too.

Thanks Ben.
I reckon they’ll be a must for the GT40.
What was the damage if you don’t mind me asking?
What system are you going to use to run it?
Cheers

I love everything about this build!
Are you planning on running air filters? In a way, it would be cool to just leave the trumpets on show and accept that a bit of scuffing of the cylinders from dirty air is the price you pay for having the coolest looking engine. Then again, I'm not paying the bills...

I reckon Shaun's and Marcella's manifolds are the most impressive looking intakes on the planet!

Probably going to run a Haltech with flex fuel sensor so I can go E85 if needed.


Most of the 8 stack systems for LS engines seem to go for between $5k and $8k depending on features and quality. I will get some sick filters made up later for street driving😃


Cheers
Ben

A little more progress.

Nice to get the wheels on so it looks like a car.

Nice work with the chassis Ben. Bit hard to see in the top photo in the shade but looks like you've polished all the front, and powerder coated? the rear?

I want to build mine again now

Hello Guy,

Polished from firewall forward and painted from there back.

Powder coat looks good and is durable, but it would not allow me to fix up some of the distortion etc. My floors and fuel tank etc. are now completely flat.

Don't pull yours apart, keep driving it!

Cheers,

Ben
