What he didn't add was that they are the old Motorsport A heads with the Chevy exhaust style ports.  Before they were the true Chevy pattern.

I did the nitrous system on it using his parts.  Nothing exotic but very reliable combination.  It has a decent chassis (ladder bar), good motor, decent shocks and they have a pretty good handle on the tuning.  I haven't seen any plugs but it's safe to say they are very healthy on the fuel side.  

I would love to set the chassis up and help with the tuning but I don't do that for free.  Michael knows my speech all too well, I have to make money doing this to feed my kids.  I don't have another job.  Racing IS my job.

I think when the stars align it'll go in the 4.80's but it'll take changes in the suspension, converter, transmission, rear gear, and any thing else to not have to progress the nitrous to make it leave the line.
