Lol good eye on the seats YUCK!!! I don't think I will be running the exhaust like that as I think it would blow the whole sleeper thing. For now the LS will be naturaly aspirated. Eventually I would like to turbocharge the car ( my engine guy has other plans). If I do I will be running the exhsust under the car and having a cutout on it around the firewall so it goes  undetected!

Your Biscayne would look pretty sweet with a wet sanding to make the color a little more "uniform" until she's painted.

 I plan on doing the very same to My Biscayne. It too has a few "wrinkles" to iron out. Mine is VERY close to being fired up soon.

I also have a '70 Chevelle that I am piecing back together that will get an LS treatment. Will you be going with a used 5.3 or the 6.2...or something more exotic?

I have a 6.0 lq4 out of an 03 van. I have an asa cam and valve springs . Will check the pushrod length and get new ones if needed.I will then button the motor back up.Reflash on the computer fire it and start driving the car..The car will have a pretty steep gear and a loose converter also. I'm not too worried about it with over drive trans.

I couldn't agree more. As rough as mine is I just love it! I had a blast getting it roadworthy an drove it about 1000 miles from last sept till December no heat! Couldn't be more happy.
