Only 3, dammnnnnnn Oh well. As for the hoodscoop, I got it from JCWhitney. It's made by Lund, not Hind (my bad), and it's called the Eclipse.

Sweet! Is your speedo accurate after the diff swap? Im getting ready to put in the 3.73 I got last weekend and was wondering about the speedo. Not sure if I need to change the speedo gear or not. Any Ideas?

Cuz WE can and did. I usually tell them "everyone has a Mustang and Camaro, I want to be different" wich really means I want them to cry when a LUV kicks their a%%.

Last sept. when I was out in Denver for the ET Finals. A guy I know from the local track I race at said to me "all I hear is Camaro this, Chevelle that, Mustang this, but I only heard one Luv!!" I told him that is why I have one!! :D If I was to build a Luv myself I would for sure tub it. There is nothing cooler than a vehicle that has been tubbed.
