Based on my buddyís experience with it, I think Iíll like it. Weíll see what happens though.

BTR truck 3 cam, LS6 springs, BTR chromoly push rods, BTR stage 2 trunnion kit, 243 heads, gen 4 TBSS intake, gen 4 TBSS injectors, larger throttle body, probably LS3 shorty headers. Also setting it up e85 capable since all that was required additionally was a fuel sensor.

Picked up a set of LS2 heads today with fresh LS6 springs installed. They only have 12,000 miles on them, so theyíre fairly clean. Got a pretty good deal on them too.

More parts continue to show up. This week was transmission stuff. Custom specíd Coan torque converter and a full billet aluminum reverse manual valve body with a trans brake and engine braking from FTI. I did not intentionally buy a trans brake, but apparently all of their billet valve bodyís come with one, which is neat. I just wanted engine braking.
