    I haven’t been here in a long time a few years to be more specific. I have given up on the studebaker as I got tired of building even the smallest things and let it go cheap. I kept the motor and trans, bought a 65 Chevy C10 stepside, doing a back half ladder bar, 10 pt cage, coil overs front and rear 30X15X30 rear slicks, skinnies up front, EFI, aluminum heads, MSD 6530 you name it, Ive changed it. Waiting on the chassis builder to get parts for getting the ride height established but ya, it ought to be a fun summer anyways! It’s been the quickest 10 + grand I’ve spent in a long long time. Better be worth it all I gotta say lmfao

    I got a lot more to get done but it is still easier than building the studebaker that’s for sure

    Ya , $10,000 this last go-round. The motor has over 10 in it but seeing how that was over/almost 10 years ago Im not counting that anymore lol it helps keep the build going.

    Glad you like it. Just put in a radiator core support on the c10 and it’s all back to the chassis

    Not yet . It’s still in the building stage. I love the concept of the Fitech but what troubles me is no racepack, haltech etc. dash links to it like every other system does. I would love to have it all linked to one display for sure so, idk if I am going to keep it forever but to get into the Efi game it will give me experience setting up a system unless they start supporting other ppls products/dash inserts . Maybe in the future? Anyone know of a digital dash that’s plug and play?

    I love it. I wish I had dual head lights. I would have used one on each side for air inlets. Keep us posted
