    Some of you know I use my car as my daily driver...even in the winter. As a pain as it is, I also try to do some shows and such during the summer. Here she is back in Feb here in Northern Va

    Well, the snows all gone now...time to get ready for spring. The boss man Al suggested we bump up the power some....being we are a Procharger dealer...thats what we went with. We also added the 09 and up 5.7 "eagle" intake manifold and we ported the throttle body from 80mm to 85.

    Drilling the crank...scariest part, other than this every thing was bolt up pretty much used factory locations for everything

    Well it looks good..but that dang filter is in the way, cant get my engine cover back on. After much thought and searching....I think I have a solution

    Put this on and drove for a few days to see how it behaves...

    Everything is good...time for the engine cover
    Had to do some trimming

    You got some money in that thing for sure. Looks like a show car, not a daily driver.

    Yea...I drive it as much as I hate to....I was pushing snow lets say....I have no idea how I didnt rip the front lip off. It actually doesnt do to bad once I get rolling and very light on the pedal. Now this year may be a whole other story cause with the superchargers the throttle is a bit touchy
