    My new tow rig.

    My Trailblazer SS makes about 750 RWHP and keeps breaking transmissions.
    I just bought my FZS and found myself with nothing to tow it with, so I improvised.
    We welded 1/2" aluminum plate to the Z06 frame to make a support for the hidden hitch.
    The receiver is completely hidden behind the license plate.
    It actually towed both skis pretty well. I'm going to pick up a single trailer today so I don't have to haul both when I go riding alone.
    The Z06 makes 736 RWHP (and sounds like it) and caused quite a stir at the marina.
    I thought you hot rodders might get a kick out of this.

    Just don't get those back wheels too far down in the water on a slippery boat ramp.

    What tranny are you trying to run in the TBSS? I was tossing aroudn the idea of ordering the procharger kit for mine but if I'm going to start breaking the stock tranny left and right it's not worth it to me. Maybe if I didn't daily drive it.

    Mine's a 427 with one of my own kits on it (14PSI) It has an RPM Level VII with hardened input and output shafts and a Yank 3200 converter.
    I just broke a hardened output shaft last week. I think that was a fluke though. They said they've never seen a hardened shaft break before.
    I wouldn't put the blower on with a stock trans. I'd do the trans first.

    I was only going to run around on minimum boost. 4-6 pounds. Hmmm... I'll probably just say screw it and keep dumping money into jet skis instead. lol
