Guys I just realized that I haven't post this build on the site. I have been posting it on others. So there will a few big threads back to back

Guys sorry that I have not posted anything. I was in Vegas last weekend at Mopars at the strip. A bunch of mopars the show was great. Anyway when I got home look at what was waiting for me.

The Caprice in the back round is my 4 door hardtop. I plan on putting an LS Engine in it with a Pro Charger. I want to build a nice driver out of it.

I need to make my own headers for the truck. They look pretty crazy.

I'm going to run 2.5 exhaust on the truck. I want to get it done before I put the body on. This way all I have to do is cut the floor up.

I'm going to run those Hushpower mufflers I heard that they were pretty good.

looks pretty sweet.

I didn't see any caprice in the background of any of those pics. what year is the caprice. I've always loved the big cars for some reason. I have a 70 impala 4drht that I want to do a budget single turbo 5.3 in the worst way.
