I like them, if they're on a car that they could originally come on. I have seen countless cars, even non Chevrolets, with Rallys wheels and it looks terrible.

They've gotta be the right size too.

I'm not really a fan of the Rally wheels. It's kind of an ongoing joke around here about my dislike for them because I kind of went overboard once... or twice...

Those AR's in 17" will really set the car off! As popular as they are, I rarely see Torque Thrusts on 3rd Gens.

Those AR's are on my long "To Order" list. I should have them by this summer. Still thinking about what rubber to put on them.

Its been a while since I've been here. The 454BB is out and resting quietly in my shed. I've gotten my hands on a 2002 Camaro all aluminum LS1. Which currently at the engine shop getting new internals and rotating assembly installed. My plan Is to fabricate and install this little guy......

Can't wait to see more. I have been toying with the idea of a more modern powerplant. Keep the updates coming.

Curious to hear about your LS1 build. What size is that turbo? How much boost?

Going with a 72mm turbo, goal is 7-10psi of boost.

Unfortunately, no. But with the fuel injection set up and full on board computer from Mega Squrit the motor will be far beyond better fuel economy then my 454BB was.

Price for the complete job, or just the computer?

I've added it up and the Mega Squirt LS1 complete wiring harness and computer is the best bang for your buck. It runs around $1,200, and comes with everything for a plug and play even with a base map to get the car running to a Dyno. The fuel pump and lines aren't to bad, $300 +/-. I already had 70lbs injectors for a LS1 motor and high flow fuel rails kicking around the shop, so those were kind of free.

FI will vary depending on what you're working with and how overboard (or not) you want to go, but plan on spending about a grand minimum.  I cobbled mine together with GM parts and rebuilt the wiring harness myself, but I splurged $700.00 on a custom tank with the internal pump.  My total investment ran about $1600.00 in the end, but I have almost enough parts left over to do another one.

Nice, what tank did you use? I'm thinking installing a internal pump into my stock tank, but might just buy a whole new tank.

Had Rock Valley make me one. Basically a stock tank with internal baffling added and the pump. Not sure which brand of pump, actually. Works like a champ, but the fittings come up a tad high for the trunk floor. Had to cut open the trunk floor above it, and am planning to make it a flip-up hatch for easy access.
