To some of the questions,
No that is not the original motor. (However I still have the original in my possesion).
The stock motor was a 305 V8, which is the sorriest motor GM ever put in these vehicles. The original had 180hp and 200 ft. lbs. of tourque which is just sad.
This new motor is a GM Performance Parts Ram Jet 350 PFI crate motor. Brand new motor out the box!
Transmission from a Tahoe Police Interceptor
GMPP Engine and tranny computer
Currently working on getting 4-wheel ABS brake discs
The car was mechanically disassembled and put back together with ALL new wiring for the engine and tranny. The entire project was done at a dealership of whom I have a close bond with. They kept my Monte for almost 8 months, but I wanted it done right so "take all the time you need" I said. It'* finally on the road now and boy do I LOVE IT. The car has downright scary power
- everyone'* look when they ride shotgun
