Finally done,.. ALMOST

By 01steeda

Well we got all the goodies installed yesterday. finished up the 4 valve, vortech with 3.0 pulley and methanol injection kit, Aeromotive fuel sytem, battery relocated to the trunk and the gauges put in. made for a long 2 weeks.

I could not have done it myself, I have great friends and my wife even pitched in.

Only problem is the transmission from the donor car has a bad 3rd gear. It hasnt let go yet, but whines like crazy. I will probably put mine in it sunday.

Other than that it runs great and pulls HARD, even at half throttle. I have gotten a good hard pull because the tune isnt nailed down. that should be done by next weekend.

This morning I got the news I will be getting a 4V cobra motor for my car. Manley Rods Diamond Pistons. P&P Heads and Blower cams. the car it is coming out of made over 600RWHP before the wreck. I know personally it has less than 2k miles on the new engine.... I am pumped!

Worked on Polishing my plenum today

By 01steeda

my materials came on for polishing the aluminum parts. I spent a few hours on the plenum and supercharger. The plenum is almost finished but the SC will take some more time. check out the pics.

just a waiting game now

By 01steeda

Motor has been dropped off at the shop and I am in line. they are extremely busy so it might take a few weeks to get it back.

hopefully I can have it back in the car before we get to far out of the cool weather.

Rebuild underway

By 01steeda

I should have some pic's up tonight, the motor is sitting ready to be plucked. everything has been disconnected (btw the headers are a BITCH!).

time for a new crank, rod, 3.0 pulley for the Vortech and Methanol injection.

another motor build

after getting my car back with all the gremlins worked out I couldnt contain myself. I had my foot in it everytime I got an empty stretch of raod. learned my lesson.. check the blower belt frequently. It shredded, busting my oil feed to the blower which in turn caused me to spin a bearing... chalk one up to stupidity.
