I think that Chris should use this Lite technology for his aluminum C&C Hemi.
It should really be Lite.
Ok...too many beers.
Turn off the machine...
Keith, It definitely would have been cheaper than the HRE sheet metal intake I got for it. Be alot easier to try different intake designs too. I could get drunk while designing a new intake. Jeff could you come over to the shop & let's get started on one. :wink: :lol:

Jeff, I tip my hat to you for going green. You showed the proper way to recycle an empty 12 pack box... You are still Da Man !!! :lol: :lol:

My simple "in-car" cam swap turned into a pull out and tear it down exercise..................But I'm gettin' closer.



I hope to fire it up before going back to work Thursday night.

Sorry Nevs. That's a keeper. :lol: :lol: I built it for my Mom with a 289 c4. When she was done with it, she gave it back to me. A 460 for this car is on the "to-do" list. 8) That whole "money" thing always gets in the way. :lol: :lol:

Hi Russ, the building was 11,500 including color choice and insulation under the roof. The floor was 6200 including a 20 x 20 pad out front. Add in electricity and a compressor, and the whole package was just under 20K. Besides the wiring, I just sat back, drank beer, and watched the pros go to work. 8) :lol:

Well jeff thats pretty nice I must add !! Whats the size of the garage? Same as the outside pad? I noticed the high wall in it...Great for upstairs storage too !!

I need to find someone that works for a concrete co...I have my spot here cleared for a 36' by 40' garage..But you would think with all the new houses being built out here by the lake the prices would come down ? "NOPE" I think the last guesstimate on a slab was 6K and that was a winter special "meaning" it may crack...and they aint nothin worse than having a cracked floor in your shop !!

Anyway "Kudos" to you Bud....It Looks great... When Ya having the Garage warming Party!! :D

BTW..what kinds work ya got done on the race car motor? and what are your ET's been ! ?
