Purrrrfectly matched FIE injectors
Intense (I guess you consider it a race built) transmission with 3.29 gear ratio
Speedo recalibrater
3.4 Pulley
Intense FWI
Intense 180 high flow T stat
Aeroforce Scan Gauge
Optima Red Top battery
Bendix ceramic brake pads/shoes
Bendix brake discs and drums
Aftermarket Boost Gauge
Timing Commander


The car is going to get
PCM Tuner (HP Tuner or DHP)
Cam (Intense S1Xt)
105# Valve Springs (97 heads must use 105, instead of LS6)
Modified Valve Spring Retainers
Lifters (stock, low mileage...not the ones currently in my car )
Timing Chain
Timing Chain Dampener
Reuseable rocker arm bolts
Valve Seals
Aluminum Oil Pan (from 2000+ requires different oil pick up tube)
Gen V M90 Supercharger (lightly ported and polished by Purple Dino MS)
Magnetic SC Oil Fill Plug
L67 Modified Intake Manifold (L32 or a modified L67 is required with a Gen V)
NorthStar Throttle Body (75mm unrestricted)
LQ4 Maf Sensor
Wiring Adapters for the sensor and TB
Wheel Speed Sensor Defeat (via switch like SSEiMatt93, most people simply unplug at the track)
Walbro 255L Fuel Pump
Larger Injectors
3.6-? pullies for Intense MPS

Now..for some pictures of the parts I do have.
Gen V

Magnetic SC Plug

NorthStar TB


WSS Defeat Relays (Researching to see if I can do it with one)


Am I missing anything besides brains? Any suggestions?

I assume you have all the fluids you need? I don't see it listed, it'* important.

It looks like you're messing with the transmission, might as well add new fluid (I know you had it rebuilt but wouldn't hurt to put new fluid to replace the one that was lost), oil and filter? Supercharger oil?

If you had them in the picture and I didn't see them then good job!

you've put it together pretty well. I would probably get a intercooler while I was this far but that is your choice. (I am GLAD you are getting a tuner).

Update: After some more research the cam decision is made. Intense'* S1X is my cam of choice with my 97 stock heads. In my research I was unable to get information I requested to further consider the ZZP XP Hot Cam. As always, I suggest doing unbiased research and buy the best products for your wants/needs.

Cam, timing chain, seals, gaskets, cam lube...name it.. everything except the HP Tuner is ordered and on it'* way to my shipping address.

I'm psyched... can't wait to get moving on the install. Now Tony and I will both be building up around the same times... ok..maybe a month apart..

Peter...Peter....Peter....

Alrighty.. we know I'm not driven when working on a car and never complete a project on time.... Here'* an idea of my plan.

Gather a couple buddies. (We are like the MN crew.. there'* never too much beer in the fridge or too many hands to help.

Being that I know I can yank the motor in 4 hours flat..I'll probably do that. Make it easier to work on the various parts.
Pull the SC, LIM and valve covers, waterpump and timing cover, then oil pan. At this point I have a long block. Inspect...this is the last chance before it turns into a monster. Then..springs, oil pan, cam, new timing set, timing cover, water pump... intake manifold and new SC, valve covers.
Back in the car.. 4 hours and it'* back to running.

I've got two air hoses and all the new parts are ready to put on. Gasket cleaning on the heads etc are a snap with 3M scotchbrite pads aka cookies on the right angle die grinder.


My local GP guys did a cam swap like this in a regal. They started at night and it was done (including hangovers) by the middle of the next day. Difference is ...I'll probably pull the motor, it'* not required though.

My assumption is 4 hours to pull and 4 to put back in. Maybe a day or two of work on the engine stand. Three days max and it'* back together and drivable. A few miles back and forth to work to break it in, a couple oil changes and poof. It'* ready.

Biggest obstacle at the moment is the tuner.... it'* a costly one.

Valve seals arrived yesterday. Cam is expected tomorrow.

Only thing left is robbing a bank for the tuner money.

Edit..forgot.. I'm also waiting on the TB adapter from Brian Teel. Should be here in plenty of time.
