classic doritos seem to be this squirrels jam, after the first i could really do whatever i wanted and it just sat there and looked at me so i handed it another and decided to see how close i could get to take a picture:



turns out i could get really close i thought it was funny u can even see the dorito dust on him, it's made of corn so that's practically squirrel food right? i suspect tomorrow he will start desiring mtn dew and nascar races. Hell yeah brother.
that squirrel had the munchies

I have the same Blue Print motor you have.
Got it last year from Summit. It took 2 months to get it, but it was worth it.
After I installed it, I ran it with a Street Demon for about two weeks. Then installed the MSD Atomic system on top. All I can say is WOW..

in retrospect i wish i had gone msd atomic so i know it would work in harmony with the msd box i will eventually install but thats life.

welp if your getting a starter and settle on one of the high tq mini hitachi styles spend the extra 50 and atleast get one from powermaster dont get the inhouse summit brand unit we had to mod it a fuzz so it fit the car then it rattled many screws out and left stuck at work about a week ago. it was like nothing was loc-tited on the whole starter. powermaster starter looked better, fit alot better and sounds nice and mechanical not like a dang crash box

so we got it back on the road and about 40 minutes from me found a old chevy dealer building, there is still a crap ton of old dealer paperwork in large boxes you can see in the back.

so got to run on a dyno at work and honestly drive train and accessory power loss is a hell of a disappointment im putting 255 at the wheels so this motor is getting pulled in the winter/spring and getting stroked and punched out.

That is still impressive for a street car! You could just through a 100 horsepower shot of N2O on it.
