I think they are? They were the wide daytons and I just popped out the plastic part..

I got one done, three to go.

Great looking wheels, do you have a picture of the pegasus wheels you started with? I have a few wheels of the integra kit that would like to make like yours but wwant tomake sure I order the correct pegasus wheels/tire combo.

What I am saying is that the LS heads and intake are a Buick design not a Chevy design. Yes I know they are both GM .

And I'm saying i am pretty sure that is not factual information. the LS1 debut was in the c5 corvette and then the Fbodies. The iron block motors went in GM trucks.

I started with part number 1198 chrome wide d'. I think Ive seen them avalible without the dayton style wheel as well but if I recall correctly the price was close enough that I just got these.

No, just repeating what the guys that build race engines say. It is closer to the buick is what they claim. I do not build race heads so I just took their word for it. I just chuckle because in the eighties the engines became a GM engine family anyway . The LS is a good design and produces great power it should just be called what it is a GM LS .

Looking great, nicely done!

LS engines in Mustangs is fine by me, great engines & in the real world much cheaper than a comparable newer Ford engine to modify ...throw an SN95 IRS in there too would be even better track car, they practically bolt-in to a Fox chassis ;)

The wheels look great too, where did you get the metal rims from?

Just checking ebay, I found these ($14 shipped), but I'm still looking for the better deal within north America to get from?

Search Pegasus 1198

They are the wide chrome d's, the plastic part just pops out.

I was kind of thinking of a IRS swap, but I kinda want to get this done before the NNL in Toledo so I gotta eventually stop somewhere. Ha
