Oh yeah, love "The Hollywood Knights" reference great movie, incredible 1 liners to laugh at. "This doesn't taste right. It does have a little wang to it."

He doesn't talk a lot, he just puts them together perfectly every time, and his prices are reasonable. I can sleep at night, knowing that he built the trans. He's a drag racer, so he knows performance and racing modifications, too. For the guys living in the Tampa Bay area and need a GOOD trans shop, look up Paul Doorn at LIP Performance in Safety Harbor. He's been building transmissions for over 40 years.

that is not a trans for an ls engine, it is for a big block chevy. there is some differences in converter and belhousing. you will be short 1 bellhousing bolt and have to use a torque converter hub spacer etc for a ls application. might consider getting the correct trans.

Thanks for the information, but I already knew this. Lots of guys are running a trans that is not "correct" behind their LS engines.

just seems that if your starting off needing a rebuild you'd be dollars ahead getting the ls one and not needing the adapter for the converter snout and guaranteeing it will plug and play with the engine harness you use. not to mention it will use all 6 bell housing bolts.

I picked up these bucket seats for the '57. They came out of a 1963 Pontiac Grand Prix. I won't be using the headrests. These seats have similar wide chrome trim as the early '60's Impala SS seats.
They will be rebuilt with new springs, foam and chrome trim.

Ladies and gentlemen.....the 480 HP LS3 heartbeat has arrived!

This weekend, I'll fab up a roll-around engine cradle for it.
