    The Syclone is still AWD with a DLS built Bowtie V6.

    We pulled the LS2 last week and Kurt Urban is going to be going through it putting on a killer set of heads and some improvements to the block for this year. Time to turn up the boost some more and get a PTC converter in there!!! :eek:

    I am sure with Mr. Urban in the mix we will see some big improvements.

    From what I was told there was something going on in the bottom end, sounded like a rod bearing. I know he is interested in selling the heads last I talked to him. Not sure what he wants for them. Dan spent over 3k into the L92 heads. :cool:

    P.S. the header guy is not interested in duplicating these headers without a car.

    Do you guys mind sharing which car the accessories came from? Would like the power steering mounted high like that. Did you guys make custom power steering hoses?

    It is a Corvette front accessory drive. The power steering lines need to be custom made.


    Glad to see you making the switch to LS power. You won't be disappointed.. :eek:

    Ok on those SBF headers, they cut the flanges off but did they cut into the tubes a little bit as well? It looks like it, plus that would make sense doing so since the Ford tube is shaped like a rectangle and the LS1 flanges are for the round shaped LS1 exhaust port.

    Also, what type of piping is used for the cold air pressure pipes? I assume aluminum piping and you guys are TIG welding it, right?

    This build thread and pics are a lot of help.

    The header tubes were cut and rounded off. The factory Ford end was cut off and reworked. The cold side piping is 3" AL and Tigged.
