    Here is a photo of the LS3 with Holley Coil Covers. We have the covers, but this is actually a friends build (in Chicago). Tod is doing a real nice job!

    A bit of progress, with the coolant reservoir installed, nose bowl being fabricated, additional wiring in place along with the ECU.

    Major holdup on the new 94" prop and HD Gearbox. Both of these were promised for delivery last spring, no later than June.....

    Whirlwind Propeller, El Cajon, CA. And Autoflight New Zealand. I have emailed both companies, in an effort to find out where we are in production, and to get a proposed delivery date. Crickets.

    The LS3 has proven to be a great match with the T-51 Mustang. It is now the engine of choice. The downside is it has a market value impact on any T-51 for sale with the Honda, or Suzuki engine.

    Are your cosmetic exhaust stubs swappable with the real ones so they get oxidised to match?

    The entire exhaust is ceramic coated. It will not change color, and will always look like what is pictured. The real benefit is thermal protection of the surrounding sheet metal, in this case, stainless steel.
