Looks like I have finally found a home. I have looked all over the net for a forum that I would like to actively be involved with and most I have come across didn't seem to fit my taste. From what I have read here it looks like I will fit in so a big hello to everyone.

Thanks for the welcomes. I live in Texas on the out skirts of Houston.

I just picked an 87 vette that needs a motor. In the last 10 years I have owned a jet boat with a 468, tunnel ram and all the chrome. I also had 96 mustang gt and then a 87 foxbody.

I was pretty happy with the foxbody due to the fact the I only put gears, mufflers, drag shocks, pullies and a CIA. I ran a best of 12.96 and the motor had a 130k untouched motor.

I now have the vette and look forward to making it into a typical hotrod that might make a trip down the drag strip every now and then. I be posting in the chevy section on the motor.

10sec,
I live in Katy so not too far. I am about to get ready to start looking for a machine shop too work on my block. You have any suggestions on who you would use. I have used westside a couple times and know about Conrad's from back in the day but not really familiar with anyone else.

i use Rogers Machine. hes an old friend thats been building motors for me, and the shop i work for, for the past 15 years. i hear Conrads does good work (from Roger). if you want to give Roger a call, his number is 832-444-8181. hes in the I45 and 1960 area. turnaround time is not too bad (for everyone EXCEPT me Rolling Eyes Laughing ). its usually 1 week to build a motor unless there are parts issues. he wont usually make you drive all the way to his shop. he usually picks up the motors himself. however, he might not go all the way out to Katy but arrangements can be made.
