The Story of this car..
Brought out storage,in year 2000
had 2 differant motor builds both whipe the camshafts,little known to people back then was the camshaft manufactors fault ,the cams metal was flawed,the 90's SP cams

Car goes to KDK Performance in FL
gone billit rollor cam
$8000 rebuild,car blows up 1/2 track at 110mph
3 total rebilds all i payed for,Dynoed an to the track same thing, 1/2 track garnade First Run !!
4th new motor bought an payed for, i pull car out KDK
spend over $30,000 in cash an parts totaling over 3 years
I call Cal Hartline,He recommeds Lamotta performance
The new motor from KDK goes striaght on the Dyno an BOOM!! headgasket launches as all the times before
I asked Jake at Lamotta if he can fix it, an add GNX style dash an new Intercooler,6 months later motors done at Heartbeat racing engines,Even though Lamottoa dropped my motor to him for whatever reason i had to go pick it up.(that cost the tranny in my truck!)After Lamotta installs the motor an fires it,I called Jake an he said i quote "Its fine, ready to go"..I pick it up, Its belowing white smoke out the exshuast very 10 minutes,water temps high, oil pressuers All over the place!!!,,the dash speedo don't work, (the whole reason i had the GNX dash kit Installed!!) an the grill ,Lamotta broke the headerpanel flap so my Grill dangles in place,had to buy whole new front headlight pannel,won't mention them storing my car under a car on lift that leaked fuild

Moral to this build,Try your Hardest to Have one All-in-One shop work on your car,Or you'll get the Third person run around,(example), Oh i'll take your car an your money,but its the machist fault or part builders fault why nothing works,pay us, blame them...
