    97 vs maloo

    So I brought this off a mate had a closed door respray pretty straight but slow as , missing drivers side genuine seat , stock 5 litre auto etc slow as fuck loved drinking fuel like it was going out of fashion . Logical choice was to ls convert it , so I pulled the 5 litre . At the moment I have a dummy motor and a glide in it mounted tailshaft done etc . The motor will be a gen 4 5.3 iron motor with scat rods diamond pistons and controlled by a elite 2500 and a racepack street dash , induction is a Ching Chong s488 hopefully get it motor built and get it up and running before you power play

    Also got some genuine vs gts devondish seats for it that I hope I can get the same material as they are as they are identical to the standard maloo interior just get the gts logo taken out and maloo put in

    What's your opinion of the 1 piece Simmons?

    Vs Maloo look great in white.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    Where did you get the 5.3 from?

    "Stock" 5.3 with a turbo can go alright
