    You might be able to pick up some OEM wheels that are in cosmetically rough shape on eBay, in the classifieds here, or possibly in craigslist, or you can call Luke Butler at Lindsay Cadillac (look for ad on right side of screen) for some track wheels. Those are probably your best two options.

    Uh-h ... nice mods.

    Not a problem for an othewise stock motor. But, with a maggie, too, I would hesitate to say "the LS6 can easily hold" it.

    Make sure you post back up here how that worked out for you.

    OK, I'll take a minute to 'splain some things.

    Rand isn't known for being sarcastic about subjects as serious as this (unless you're asking for it).

    Building a system while increasing horsepower by just slapping parts on a car will eventually challenge any strategy once the weak link in the system is "discovered" and you start to break parts. The LS6 block seems to be every bit as strong as the LT1's I am VERY familiar with. And I've seen amazing things done with both. But, I've also bent a I-beam rod once just by suffering one backfire with a Maggie blowing 8 psi in a parking lot. You never know.



    You don't mention the mileage of your car. That # should be the first guide to whether you should build the bottom. Next would be how hard do you plan to push the Maggie. Finally, how hard do you plan to push a SECOND power adder (nitrous).

    Have fun scattering your diff all over the start line. Make sure you tell the guys staged behind you not to get too close, and that they should go ahead and shut their engines off because it's going to take a while to clean up your mess.

    No sarcasm in my comment. (Thanks, Gene.)

    A maggie alone, and you'd be okay. A 100-shot nitrous, same thing. Taken together and you're close to (if not over) the point where breakage can occur. I say "can occur" because for short bursts, you may get away with it many times over, and each time your motor will live to see another day. A full 12 seconds (say down a 1/4 mile strip) of it and you're pushing it ... multiple times down the 1/4 mile and all bets are off.

    When I said, "Make sure you post back up here how that worked out for you," we would all like to know if you were successful, because very few of us have done what you said you intended to do. If you're successful, we'd like to hear it. If not successful, our morbid side kicks in and we'd like to see the carnage.

    It's all good.

    Which shifter did you get?
