Dang, I figured as much seeing it was on Ebay and the price was affordable. I still love stack injection though! Nothing looks better on a N/A motor IMO.

you might want to think about fresh water cooling with all the aluminum even in fresh water corrosion could be a issue...also would maintain constant temps the EFI will like...Rob

He mentioned earlier that he was going with a carb set up so at least the EFI won't be an issue.

I have been thinking really hard about doing a closed loop cooling sytem on it. Might be something I add later. But like atc250 said, I am 99% sure that I am going to go with a carb set up for now. If I get tired of that I will go with an EFI set up similar to what Ron (GimmeFuel) is running. But that will be down the road.

I have often wondered if this would be a good way to go with my 251. I think this would be a great alternative for my aging 502. A 6 liter LS can make tons of power with minimum mods and would shave off quite a bit of weight. I'm going to keep an eye open for updates. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
