Well I've had my caprice for a couple months. Now it's time to pull the engine and rebuild it with some goodies. So far I have bought a full kooks exhaust. 1 7/8s headers, catless mid pipe and mufflers. Looking at a night fury cam and BTR springs. A forged crank, Rods and pistons.

Pics to come

I have the btr stage 4 ls2 cam valve springs new chevy performance cnc'd heads circle d 3600 triple disk and a ton more of stuff sitting in the garage. Just haven't felt good enough to put the car back together. The heads are off of it. Had a bad head gasket and leaking intake valves. Explains the rough idle.
