    He heard me telling a friend I was going to rip out the diesel and put a twin turbo 6.0 LS in it and he said the hell you are! I said, well you could just buy it and do I'll build another. So he did.

    He has always wanted a 72 Corvette and I think he was pretty fond of this car. He said it's unique and it should be left as is. It will be now. I have been searching for another 73 shell to build another big tire car. I know, poor life choices.

    Finally the moment you all have been waiting for! Ok, I know, maybe 2 of you. The surprise for the 40!

    3 weeks ago I was following a Make it Run project Steve Darnell was doing on Instagram. I follow his cousin Merlin Johnson and Merlin said that he was heading to Steve's so they could run up to Utah and pick up this cool low mileage 67 C30 camper. Well I'm a sucker for 67-72 chevy trucks, and those truck campers. Then I found out they were going to give away prizes during their trip. I followed along when I could and the camper was pretty sweet too boot. So on the last day I entered a give away. You just had to tag 3 people and post it. The next day I had a notification from Welderup. I saw the notification and thought, "Huh, that's weird. Why would they want to talk to me?" It was because I won the Fitech fuel management system they gave away!!!!

    At first I was thinking, nah, that was a fluke. I'll get a message later saying sorry there was a mistake. Nope, on Sunday Steve messaged me to get my info so the process could get started. Monday morning Fitech reached out to me and got my info so they could ship it out to me. Here's where it gets interesting. The kit was a retro LS kit that would allow you to bolt a throttle body on top of a carb manifold and run a LS with a 4L60/80E. I asked them if I could trade that for a dual quad setup and they agreed! I didn't push my luck and go for the power addder one because it was a big price gap. So now the 40 has dual quad EFI!!!!

    My Tanks Inc tank will accept an electronic fuel pump so I need to get new fuel lines, and a fuel pump and the injection system will be ready to run.

    I'm pretty excited about it. I've had a hankering for it since they first came out with it but I knew I wouldn't spend the money on it until after the car was all together. This might minimize bad ideas of a blower for a while too.
