Been watching your build on Tech.....gonna be a monster.....umm, just one question, how you gonna connect your steering, will it miss the pipes?
yes the steering box is way down behind the control arm. i am not sure if your car is the same as the 67-74 with the rear steer? there is tons of room.
i plan to use a 4l80e right now it has a 60 in it but i hope its just for mock up and i don't need to destroy it! the rear of the car is all done the car has ladder bars and a stock 8.5 ten bolt with moser axles Eaton posi and richmond gears. 3.73's 26 tall tireThat going to look real nice! Mine works good but is ugly as hell! What are you using for a transmission and rear end?
-is the ls1 based motor dimensionally smaller or bigger than an sbc?
-are the parts forged from the factory?
-how much is a used shortblock/longblock
-where did you buy those motor mount adapters?
-what turbo are you going with?
with my bbc coming out slowly, Im SERIOUSLY thinking about doing an ls1 since I already have the fuel and megasquirt in place.
It would lose about 200lbs, and Im hoping it wont take up anywhere near as much engine bay realestate.
its very time consuming if you have a large budget and are doing a N/A setup it could be done pretty cheap but starting from noting and building a turbo car takes some money. i try to build every thing i can to save some cash.Yeah, they can hold power for sure. I was reading your thread on ls1tech and it seems like maybe more work than meets the eye. One thing I hate is surprises because it usually involves money that one didn't plan for
No And no lol..my biggest question is still
which pan will bolt up and clear the crossmember without hanging too low. is there a pan like this that can be bought?
also, the truck manifolds - do they bolt upside down and rearwards on the engine without any mods?
