Smile chris's 03 bug eye build 550+ on pump gas

Hello my name is chris. I bought this car brand new in 04 as a left over for my first car, it all started with buying a body kit, and has transformed from there :-). This car was my daily driver for three or four years, and one day i was driving it home from work in boston and the car was misfiring and i dropped it down a gear and leaned out the motor and it blew. After that i put it in the garage and im completly re-doing it to the way i wanted it sense now i have all the time in the world to do it right. And im doing all the work myself (i went to wyotech and did work as a mechanic) except the short block build and the head work beacuse i don't have the paitence. but thats the story hope you like it :-D
