    Don't get me wrong. I loved the PRV. But this really gets you to the future, and with that sound.

    Yeah, that'll fix block rot all right!

    Wow, that looks good... both frame work and engine. I can see the attention to detail.

    Is that the venerable LS1?

    Awesome job!

    P.S. Please post a video of start up!

    Yes, LS1. I am going away for work for one month again. To be continued when I get back.

    Thanks and so do you. Your restoration is number one work.

    Hopefully Josh will still have a LS when I'm done. Nice work.

    I too cannot resist! Like Josh, open headers, lots of excitement, and some smoke.



    The photos above look awesome! More and more LS DeLoreans being made; what a time to be alive! When this thing fires up, it will make every effort you've made worth it!!

    Thanks to Nicholas Roedl and Doc Brown for the inspiration. Josh also brought something new with a different LS version. The first time I saw Nick page I was like wow this guy has courage. At some point you have make a decision. PRV parts is so expensive it was more a difference in time then budget so might as well go with what you want. I will make a cross over around the bell housing (H-pipe) so I am looking forward to hear the sound that it will make. Also this car as to pass an inspection before getting back on the road since it was never registered in Quebec before. They already know it is a engine swap still this type of inspection is strict. So there is no half mesure here or I'll do it later things.
