    Well, I ended up shelling out a bit more, but got such a nice motor being built. I don't know all of the specs, but I'll have a data-sheet with them on delivery. The motor is a TBI 383 with roller cam, Scat crank & rods, Speed Pro pistons, high volume oil pump, Vortec heads & intake. Plans are to top it off with a 454 throttle body. The motor should be good enough to break the T-5 transmission I have now, especially if I'm not careful.

    It was quite the summer project, working on it only weekends when the weather permitted (I was in my driveway). I finished up about the end of July and have driven it pretty regularly since. Can't seem to get a hold of the builder since asking him some questions about some tuning parameters. Still haven't got a build sheet from him, I won't have any HP/TQ numbers until I dyno sometime this winter/spring.

    This is me on the way home from that fateful dyno day...

    I found a website that does custom emblems in polished stainless and had a set made to replace the RS emblems that were on the car. Very good people to work with, I contacted them through their website explaining what I was looking for, a couple of e-mails and phone conversations later, I had some custom "383" badges for the car.

    That's nice. I wish I knew more about that stuff. I know just enough to be a danger to myself and others around me.

    Thanks, but I don't know much myself. All I did was pull the old motor and install the new one (fully assembled). My biggest obstacle was making sure the harness maintained the connections to the correct sensors, not all were in the same lace with the new intake. I still have a little way to go with the tuning aspect, but I've got an upgraded stock ECM that makes it easier to do.

    I drove to Detroit from Texas to have a speed shop up there tune my ecm and tcm. Well, I was headed to wisconsin to visit family and I detoured several hours to Detroit to get the tune done. Well worth it.

    Epic man what did they rate it at?

    Ill be taking my genesis up to Wisconsin come spring for turbo upgrade. i dyno'd 260whp and 290ftbls with just a tune intake and turbo back exhaust. pretty good jump from the factory claim of 210hp.

    My ECM tuned was for 93 octane and guaranteed me 12 HP, 15 FP torque and 2 MPG. My shift points are hella better than what the factory had it at. Definitely drives better. With my CRABS intake and GT-R exhaust system, I'm guessing I'm around 285 HP and torque. The car was factory with 250 hp/tq. I can get 28 mpg on the highway and about 21 back and forth to work ... even driving like an asshole half the time.
