What style wheels did you go with? Also I like the smaller scoop if you could close the front opening on it. A Stealth Ram is my next mod. How do you like yours? What else is done to your motor?

hi raid, i bought the small scoop for the opening to force cold air in and out my hood vents when i get those. it s from one of our local cars and you can get them with out the opening.so far all i have done is the stealth ram and the usual stuff we all do soon as we get a vette. am booked in for long tube headers twin pipes and magnaflows next week. got some 3:73 gears to go in and some nitrous is next on the list. thats all i am doing with this engine as i want to go b/b in a year or two.the wheels are from a local wheel company(copy of the pro star wheel) but i had them redisign it to smooth the face.tried to attach a copy but would'nt go youll have to wait for the snap shot :D :thumbsup:

GS977 hi. thanks for the comps. on my wheels. Look if you are serious about geting some of these wheels i could arrange things thru the guy i deal with. Unfortunatley i am in australia and thats where they come from.
I got 17x11 &17x9.5 which cost me $3400 just for the wheels, no tyres so with the cost of shipping ??????. I looked for over a year both in oz and u.s to find something unique, plus this guy measures everything to get the right offset and max front space on the wheel.
