    Shane, your build is a true work of art. My hope is that I get to see it in person one of these days. Congratulations on a stellar job well done. Last Friday Dave and I declared that chassis #106 was finally done..!! We fought some electrical grimlins that turned out to be in The EZ Wiring kit quality issue (hot wire in the directional signal circuit that should have been a ground wire). All the electricals are working perfect now. Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year to you and your family.

    Jack,

    Thanks for the kind comments. It's good to know that Dave's car is sorted and complete. Here's to us all getting together down the road.

    Well, took the Storker out for its first 'real' run today; that is, out of the neighborhood and off for a few miles of driving. The video quality isn't very good (lousy at best; hastily shot with an iPhone) and there's lots of wind noise. However, it felt good to hit the open road if only for a bit. I would have preferred a warmer temp, but it was tolerable cool at 49 degrees.

    Shane, Big time congrats on the rise of the Phoenix just before the New Year! Suave was probably jealous not being able to go on the first ride although the temps may have been too cold for our feathery friend. The car looks beautiful. I can't believe that all of those wild colors came together so well. Who would have thunk it? All of the vents make the car look like a space machine from another planet. Safe journeys and no flying acrobatics with this one. Bob

    Returned last night to Eldo after a two-day trip over to SNL Performance in Haslet, TX where James Karger (Tuner for SNL) and I spent the better part of Tuesday morning tuning the Storker. Ended up with 501hp / 485tq at the wheels. For LS guys, and interested parties, basic engine package is:

    • Massaged LS6 (243 castings) heads by TEA TEA Stage II LS6 Heads
    • LS7 lifters
    • ARP Head Bolts
    • Custom ground camshaft (227/230 .641/.600 111+3) Callies core
    • LSX ported / shimmed oil pump
    • FAST 102mm intake manifold
    • Nick Williams 102mm throttle body
    • Manley 7.4" hardened push rods
    • Racetronix 42lb injectors
    • NGK TR6 plugs (gapped at .035)
    • Tuned on 93 octane (no ethanol)

    Nice Shane, but you need to get that motor to rev a little. All Done by 6000rpm? Heck our fun barely starts at 6K. Watching my dyno pulls to over 8600 rpm made my heart race and my butt pucker. Yours was so quiet I thought it was Idling. Hope to see and hear it at NJMP this summer. Make it happen. Tom
