Default Spring project

Got just about all my parts.

Fuel system
LS1 MAF, 42.5 injectors, autolite 103 plugs. I still need a adapter plug to plug the LS1 MAF in, and I need to port out a a throttle body, and might do PRJ fuel rails, but only if I find a deal and I have all my transmission parts.

8 rib setup.
I now have everything for this. Some of the pulleys are on the engine. I still need to modify the motor mount.

Transmission
So far I have a 3000 stall torque converter and the hardened 4th clutch shaft. Still need a few things. 3.29 gears on on the way, I think, need a transfer chain. Gaskets and O rings, 4th gear clutches, hardened input shaft, and rebuilt valve body.

Dan,

Thanks for sharing what you are doing, but I am not knowledgeable on tricking out the engine. What is all this going to do for you?

Nice Dan, but I was thinking increasing the little giggle factor when your getting to the top of a roller coaster.

Had to put the 8 rib belt in place just to see how it looks. Wow, what a difference between 6 rib and 8 rib.

Are you going to be able to run that cam and the 1.9:1 rockers together? I'm not sure how aggressive that cam is.

I have to go back to stock 1.6:1 rockers. The cam will max out the stock heads.

I plan to run to the dyno first. I was asked to go to Great lakes dragaway the end of May, I hope to make that. The other night a friend said he has a extra ticket for the NHRA races in Juliet Illinois the first week of June. But I'm already booked that weekend. First performance of the season. Grumble grumble.
