Hey bud! These relocations have been done on the Grand Prix but I've never seen it on a Monte. Im glad the shop is doing this wiring and not me, I would be lost and probably gave up by now lol.

The intake manifold I got the idea from a grand national buy actually as there intake inlet faces forward/passenger side for us.

Im very curious to see how your Monte does with the Holly components!!

The shop assures me as long as she don't break on the Dyno it will be ready for the w body mega meet in Michigan so I will for sure be there. Actually I will be there either way, either with the cts-v and turbo Monte or just the cts-v lol. Hotel is booked already

I will never leave it gutted. It's a show car. It will never be gutted so idc what it "could" run gutted. I wanna know what it will run with no changes from street to track other than tires. (Street tires are drag radials, track tires are bias ply slicks)

Very nice, the shop cleaned everything up very professionally. Compliments to them, so many wires, no time to just stuff things into cracks and looms and hope there are no problems. Hope they make good progress for you. There is a fair amount of work remaining I would bet.

My car has been gone 2 weeks now, the shop has not had time to touch it. They have another build eating up their precious time. If your Monte is done and will be there and mine is done I will be going to the W-Body event, not booking any room till things gel more clearly.

Like your M/T tires a lot, that is about as good as it gets. I have the Hankook Ventus drag radials mounted on spare wheels and ready to go for our possible showdown...

There is still a pile of work to do but they are still saying it will be done. Even if turbo Monte isn't done in time we will still be going to Michigan with the cts-v just to hang out and visit with the 3800 community that I rarely get to see but always chat with online. I sure hope your car is done and you can make it Greg!

Very slow process. Wiring is about done, piping has also been started. No updates pics yet though. Still waiting for them to send me some.
