I am considering it but am a long way off that point yet! Although my adapter did arrive today (thanks Nick totally awesome, amazing quality and very quick to get here) so getting pretty excited about it all. Will start my build tread soon...

great feeling for sure…Nick was invaluable answering countless rookie questions. my first time messing with a swap that wasn't a simple carb setup. wiring was intimidating at first but ultimately this swap was pretty easy and came together quickly.

I can't wait to get it on the road. it will be great to fill the 110 with family and gear and still have the power to tow a boston whaler on the highway.

Been looking at exhaust manifold options cause I'm cheap & was wondering if anyone had tried the later CTS-V ones ?

Reading on other marque forums they appear to be a good tight fit to the block & can be had for cheap on Ebay.... Allegedly
