Over the life of this project I have joined a handfull of forums depending on what the focus was at the time... have to say I have never recieved quite as warm a welcome as I have here, particularly since I was expecting a kind of 'stepchild' treatment.
OK, before I get a teary-eyed, and since some of you have asked about my '36, here is a little more...
Engine: '95 VIN 1. Modifications: Air intake; 2 90% household plumbing rubber elbows, K&N. Exhaust; homebuilt equal length headers, Jet Hot coated. Had to move the A/C compressor from under the left head to over it. Moved the coils from in front of the left head to the back of the right head. Mfgr'd a compressor bracket and added another idler pully. Mfgr'd new heater in/out ports. Built a cradle to facilitate front motor mounts. Mfgr'd a custom harness. Shortened the engine coolant outlet (would have interfered with the firewall). Reworked bracket that the power steering reservior mounts to in order to mount the air filter.
Transmission: '96 Firebird 4L60E. The guy at the recyclers where I purchased this stuff said that the PCM could be modified for a few bucks to drive the 4L60E rather than the 4T60E (Yea, right) Ended up purchasing a TCI TCM. Had to mfgr my own flywheel cover since that engine has the starter on the left but that trannie expects it on the right. Only other mod was the flex plate/converter holes missed matching by 'thaaaat much'. Fixed it with a rat tail file (low tech, effective)
Rear End: '95 *-10. Used 2 of the four stock leaf springs and "Air Ride Tech" air sleeves. Cobbled in the Pontiac "Electronic Ride Control" so the relationship of that big rear whitewall to the fender stays the same under any load.
