The Original Heart
305 TPI 700R4 Tranny
The Stock Rearend
On the hoist ready for its extreme makeover - IROC edition!
Well, with the exception of the sub frame connectors.
Looked like it had been sacked and pillaged. Talk about leaving it in the wrong part of town...
Felt kinda sad for her :(
The new heart - LS376ci
This GM Crate Engine had 525HP BEFORE we strapped a Magnusson Heartbeat Supercharger to it. 10 Pulleys total.
L470E plus 1 7/8 Headers
Proof God loves us and wants us to be happy.
(Originally what Roosevelt said about Beer ;)
3.27 gears with Auburn Posi and Baer Brakes. I don't think the stock one would have made it out of the parking lot without detonating.
I was thinking...
that the thing wrapped up is a red torque arm wutg drive shaft safety loops?
Looked like it was back on an assemply line!
Rust be gone
The big rusty k-member was history!
So Damn Sexy
Added 2" to the 18x8 IROC knock offs.

with dual fans
Not to be confused with Duel fans.
Brought her down an inch.
Getting ready for new paint
Considering it was 24 years old, it was time.
New Wheel Size
The 18x10s are cool, but I LOVE the 18x9s up front.
Now We Are Serious
The subframe from hell
So now when I floor this beast...
I'll still be able to open my doors! Bonus.
Powdercoated custom cold air intake
IROC-X ended up winning first place in the 2015 Third Gen Expo in Chicago.
