Nice! I like this build. I'm currently building the 99 camaro kit. I wanted to just build a turboed street car. But I had some slicks from a 72 camaro kit and I ended up tubing the rear. So not so much of a street car now. I still have a long way to go. I wanna build a intake like yours but have no clue where to start. Lol I'll be following this build.
