Finally found some time to work in the garage.

Got the cardboard template, of the front plate, trimmed out.


Transferred to the aluminum plate.




I went through a few blades, but got it done!




Next was the Mid-plate.








Once I get the New tailhousing Trans mount installed, I will then be able to drill the holes in the plate and weld up my tabs for the mid plate.


Thanks for tuning in.

Thank you! I swear, theres times when I think Ive bitten off more than I can chew with this. However, I have some Great fabricators that can fix whatever I mess up! LOL!!
Lol I know what you mean! But I've went through a lot of your work so far and the care and attention to detail really shows

Ive had this Chevy II since 1998 and even sold it a couple of times. But it always comes back to me.

The last time I actualy drove it, was about 2 years ago. I was racing it in the NMCA over at Indy.
I had a Blast, went a few rounds in Open Comp and lost to the eventual winner.



Before then, it was raced at my local track and driven to some cruise ins and car shows.











Well after the race in Indy, I figured I would like to have more HP, but without running Race gas. I also saw some cool cars over there and the majority of the faster ones were running EFI. I knew I could make good power with E85 and an EFI set up so thats the direction I went.



I knew I would need more fuel, so I found a deal on these.



Why have so many gauges spread out, when I can have them all in one place.

Looks like you found a good block off plate and are getting close to putting that front end on.

Finally getting back to work on this!

Trying to get the trans cross-member lined up...


and I screwed up a brand new TSI solenoid.


I received my upgraded 417 Motorsports Intercooler and Holley LOW-Ram...


and I just had to put it on the engine to check it out.



I have a ways to go with this and Im hoping that it will be running by Summer. But Life happens and Im in no hurry.

looking great. I know you have had no issues in the past with engine temperatures and this is more a question of - just how foes it get under the hood with the twin turbo set up?
