pretty nice truck. interesting choice on the kit. they are doing a ford vs chevy theme for the show and the lightning is going up against a chevy 454SS with a heads/cam/Proflow efi conversion.

I watched the show too, I think they should be pretty even after the mods HP wise. Those BB chevys where weak from the factory back then but H/C/I on any BB Chevy and its going to make some serious power, and it will crush the lightning when it comes to TQ.

and spinning. You could see the gas gauge move on those ss's. i drove one for awhile. turbo 400 and steep gears. No overdrive.

I hear that they should have chosen a 91-93 model they had the overdrive trans, and more hp and tq.
