Update: Car is still sitting. Had a lot going on lately but I'm ready to get this thing out of the garage but I need some help to get this thing back on the road. If anyone is looking for some side work I will be more than happy to discuss.  Engine/trans is out of the car and everything was bagged/labeled when pulled. Had the cylinders honed and re-assembled with stock parts and ARP rod bolts but I don't have much confidence in the machine work that was done and would like someone to double check the block. 

Not opposed to a shop either since it will also have to be tuned for the heads/cam setup. My wife would be ecstatic to get a parking spot in the garage for Christmas. :lol:

@Disney and @Mike are the best LSx guys I know. :yes:

One of them might be able to help you out.

I wouldn't let anyone else touch my junk to be honest. :love:

I emailed Vengeance just to see what they would say but never got a response. Got married last year and paid all my debt off (other than the house) and I've been dying to have something fun again.

I'd be interested in putting it back together. Would be fun.

I knew we talked a couple of years ago about it but wasn't sure if you had any interest. I'll pm my number so we can discuss. So apparently I never posted this and just sent you the PM anyways.

Update: Engine is back from Shackletts and ready to go. It's good thing I never tried to run the engine after I got it back from the machine shop in Murfreesboro. We will be moving the car this weekend to a friends shop where it will finally be resurrected. It's been a long time coming to say the least. Any recommendations for a transmission shop to go through the T56?

The only M/T place I know of around here is C&L Transmissions on Gallatin Pike in East Nashville. I've been up there to get some M/T parts for a trans I was doing and he knows his stuff. 

 

I'm super glad to see this project going!!!

Nothing like a baby on the way to get a project motivated. I planned on checking with the guy who took over Phil's Transmission now known as Matt's Transmission to see if they had any interest. 

It's going to take quite a bit of time and effort but she will live again.

Lol nah. Maybe one of these days it will get a LSA blower but main goal is to get the car back on the road. It's been sitting for a few years at this point. V1s aren't really known for their 1/4 mile performance. It will be much more likely to see a road course before a 1/4 mile at this point. I plan on beefing up the rear end but that's secondary until it is running and driving. Baby is due Jan 14 so we are on the clock. 

It's stock bottom end LS6 with arp rod bolts and decent sized cam. The heads were sent to AI for port/polish and bumped the compression up slightly so it should make around 420-430 to the wheels.
