VN LS1 [GMVN] cage - glide - autometer dash

Hi all

Been at this project for a while now and starting to make some progress. Bought the car a while back and from the beginning it was decided that an ls1 conversion was the go since all the conversion parts are pretty much of the shelf these days.

Enjoy

Not sure man the only mod the engine has got is a smallish cam so not expecting huge numbers will get it running first, drive it and see how it pulls and then decide on the engine mods. Looking at a cast iron block with a big stroker kit or just put some boost through the current engine with some healthy mods to go along with it.
