Again, that looks great. I really like how the interior turned out. Be a fun van at intersections to play with the tuner cars. yay

She smiles ear to ear when I stomped on it.

Did a 150 mile round trip last weekend, averaged 19-20 miles per gallon. Really awesome, roughly 2 ton, 310 hp, 60-65 mph on hiway, tubbed and riding in style.

It has an all aluminum 5.7 LS1 from a 99 Trans Am. 310 horse stock, still has stock exhaust manifolds and catalyst convertors.
Hopefully, this winter I can add some more hp. Cam 375 hp, 100 shot NOS 475 horse, port & polish or better heads 575 horse. The LS are awesome motors & dont take much to make good horse power.
