Last October or so the flexplate cracked in my SS so I parked it until I could gather enough parts to get started on replacing the flexplate and making some improvements / changes here and there. I started on it a few weeks ago but progress has been slow due to my work schedule. Figured I'd start a build thread so hopefully it'll motivate me to finish this sooner than later as some of this stuff makes me want to keep putting it off lol. Its just a standard cam only build but while everything is apart, I wait on parts and time to work on it; I figured I would start to plan (again) for the future. One of these days I would love to twin turbo this thing. Hopefully it gets finished within 2 more months.

Here's what I'm starting with.


I'll update with more pics later today. Gotta work for a bit now lol:cheers1:
