    Another newbie

    Whats up guys? I have just recently finished a LS-1 swap in the Elky with a 200-4r behind it. I am in the process of trying to get a T-56 but trying to get all I need so its not down for to long. The first pic is before the swap. She was set up as a pump gas sbc 406 street/drag car. It put down a 12.60 untuned at 6200 DA. Never got to run it after tuning it. The second pic is its current state but a bad pic.

    Welcome aboard (erm.. what's your name?)!

    We're always happy to have another El Camino - especially when they're sharp, like yours and not sad, like mine.

    Thats for the compliments. It is no where close to being finished. Ran out of money on the ls1 swap. One of these days(ya right, are they ever "finished")

    Talk about mixing the old with the new! So how well is the little 200-4R working for you?
    Your engine install looks nice and clean. I noticed you got rid of the plastic fuel rails, or is that just a fancy paint job on them?

    If there is a hard way to do something, I'll find it!

    The fuel rails are Aeromotive. They are not advertised yet, but the do produce them. They are only $171 versus the $200+ price on everyone elses. As for the 200-4r, it works fine. A friend of mine that builds them for the Grand Nationals built it for me. We are just trying it out on different hp levels and driving styles to see which of the billet parts they need to survive. The first one was basically stock and didnt last very long. This one has probly 50% of whats available and has held everything I have thrown at it even with the last motor.

    Welcome Kenny glad you're posting on here. This car was gorgeous last time i saw it (carbed back then). I hope i get to see it with the LS1 sometime. VERY nice looking installation looks like it was put there from the factory in the pics.
