For sale soon: Turbo built 355 LT1 w/Hotside

My intended Junkyard 5.3 has morphed into a complete full tilt effort with attendant empty wallet syndrome...
The motor and everything is still in the car and running(not driving it for the moment since it's still snowing here from day to day)

Once the weather warms up(30's and above on a consistent basis), I'm pulling this all out and putting in the 5.3 setup.

$6,000.00 for everything. Over double that was spent in parts.

Working, Running Turbo LT1 motor. Intake to oil pan. Hotside included but not Turbo.
This setup, running on 93 octane pump gas, on street tires, full interior has ran 11.5's at 127mph but, best mph was 129mph at Lebanon Valleys 1/4 mile. This was at 14psi.
The shortblock has been in use since I had it built from scratch in July 2008. Starts great, runs great and dependable since I've driven it from Albany to Rochester and back (500 miles round trip) many times. Temps stay on the first quarter mark using the stock fans as pushers. I've beat every GT500 I've raced (two on the street, one at the track two times), EVO's, WRX/STI, Turbo Neons, one Skyline(right hand drive, old style) , LSx Vettes, Fbodies, Cobras, Mustangs, SuperBees, Challengers, Late Model Camaros, sub-liter sportbikes, etc. Yet gets 21mph when driving on the freeways with my T56 and 3.55 gears.

I can shoot a video of it starting, running if needed.
Just wanted to let folks know it's going to be out and for sale soon,
