A 5.3 Junkyard LS with a 76 mm Turbo kit will blow it away.
Reality Gunny and Autowiz.

So much for $100k Pro Tour.

Diesel Mechanics get Paid Double or triple what Auto mechanics do.


Up to $60 per hour in Chicago Illinois.


I know what Wiz is getting paid.
Its not much.


I worked in Chicago Race Shops.
Pays more than Florida.

I showed a friend that is a Die Hard Road Racer.
He went off on a Rant how much he hates Pro Touring.
Says it jacked up the prices for all.

You should post your very own personal car and truck projects daily like I do.
Mine are on Grumpys site.

My money spent.
My Very own stuff.
I built my very self.

Right. I am a Tech. A Professional. I make a living off of building for others. What I have learned is that the guys that want the budget truck engine build have no money to spend on labor for others to build for them. Maybe you do well here, But I like to build for the wealthy. And I am showing you what they like. The question is why are you here? Are you here to make money or to build a ride? really?


And while you ponder that take a look at this:

I am a Corvette owner.
I have owned mine since Febuary 2007.
I was here on DC before you.

I have been doing tech helping out others since day 1 here.

Still not your own cars.
Never can drive them at high speeds.
Never can race customers cars yourself.

Do you understand how pointless that is? The complete letdown I am in for. To tune my car to <476hp when I build and tune for so much more? I think I would just rather take a nap.
