I'm in south jersey, I have a thread going for my build on here also. I had a turbo 5.3 third gen that I sold, that's mostly why I'm going carb and nitrous, I like the idea of the simplicity, although I'm sure its never as simple as it sounds hahaThis car may also try its luck at some radial racing. I considered an LS power plant. Too rich for my blood. You can do some fairly reliable hp numbers at 1k-1200hp. Above that it gets really expensive. My choice of the BBC was cost based. Due to machine shop wait times, I stayed away from nitrous. Turbos being a little easier on parts. I'd like to hear about your build as it comes along. What part of the country?
