Welcome to the Team Roger!

The 5.3 liter LM-7 motor is a great start for a build though I think it displaces only 325.1 cubes.

Thumbs up Big Dave

Big Dave! thanks brother! ya picked up the impala from a buddy who has put in a lot of work into her over about 8 years or so. he has to get rid of it because he is moving into the downtown core and he has no place for it. so i gave her a good home. still everything to learn about her. i know nothing about these cars. i drive a new ford pickup.
