victory_red_SS project update and pics

Well it is time to give an update.
The project has not gone according to schedule and yes Matty I know you told me so.
Last word is the custom cylider sleeves from Bates are almost done. They should be in by the time Mev from JBP gets back from his honeymoon, Sept. 17th. Until Mev is back we wait on the engine.
There is plenty for me to do however. I have a few parts that I can install such as these

front coilovers and control arm bushings

and some rear suspension parts

I will also have to install my 3 gauge pillar pod and gauges but be warned, the AEM Wideband gauge does not fit in the pod.

I also have to reinstall my carpet and maybe my seats as I removed them to put in my
rollcage

After putting that back together I will have to also make a list of stock parts to sell as many things are no longer needed. Here are some more parts I have lying around waiting to be put to work.

The body kit and hood should be here next week and I'll see how it looks painted and on before deciding whether I will keep it. I am trying to work out a deal with a local custom shop about a custom paint job (they did my cage) but right now Blake is too busy worrying about the car he will be racing on Pinks(he is the first Canadian in 4 seasons)
I will let you all know more as I do. Right now it seems the engine won't be shipped back until closer to the end of September and once it is installed Mev will be flying out to tune and tweak the engine.
The twincharge system is in the final stages and will be ready as soon as the engine is put back together.

Yea, i'm using your build as a guinea pig. Good luck on the twincharge setup though. I wouldn't mind taking that clutch off your hands....

I believ it's a 66 Camaro. They film later this month and air early part of 07. I will get an air date next time I am in the shop.
