    Hasn't got out yet. Still a bit of work left to do.

    Yes it is a GM auto. 700R4 right now. I know it isn't going to love long behind the 6.0L. But it was dirt cheap so I don't care lol. I am on the fence about building it or just throwing a 4L80E in it. Planning to throw a 7875 turbo on this and shooting for 700whp. So the 4L80 is my best bet.

    Got around to working in this the other day. Got the interior back together and neutral start switch and back up lights wired up along with the shift indicator light.
