I have not built an LS or anything easy before, I decided to start with a DSM ‍♂️. Picked up a cheap 90 GSX that had been “rebuilt” but blew out the oil pump. Roughly 3-4 months later it had 950cc injectors, link v3 and a few things that were on it from the start. Currently working on a new head to fix one of my last few issues. Still hardly know anything, but I’m bound and determined to have a 10-11 second street car one of these days. Follow along on the journey, feel free to give me any tips and knowledge all is welcome. And most importantly thank you for bringing me into the community!

    Welcome to the group Alex! :thumb:
    I was more than happy to pop in and try to lend a hand. You have a decent starting platform and with some elbow grease and work, she can be the car you dream of. Anything that I can do to help out I am glad to do. Nice meeting you in person and you letting me "play" with your ride! I had FUN!
    Search, ask questions and be open minded. This is THE BEST DSM FORUM on the net hands down. Best people, best experiences and great help!
    Best of luck on the resurrection and if you need anything, let me know. I come by every day! :thumb:

    Here is a tip to always remember. None of them are any easier than any others. They all take a ton of patience and a ton of commitment, attention to detail,and someone willing to lean. All the losers cry ls is easy, well they are on par for aborted builds with anything else, maybe even higher. Guys hear it's easy, find out it's not, then give up.
