thats funny right there...lol as far as they are concerned it is a 94 olds cutlass with a lowly 3100...
got some new stuff for the 442'* fuel system....aeroquip and earl'*
oh and the other boost and vacum gauge
so now we have 2 boost gauges, one electric sender oil pressure, and one electric sender coolant temp

now just need the oil and coolant gauges for the front...a volt gauge two 3.5 inch tachs and one 5 inch 200mph speedo

AN6 fittings and line for the dual fuel returns into one for the fuel cell... the pressure side is all Aeromotive and Earl'* with a bit of magnaflow...now the return side should be up to tech...

and here'* the AN-8 45* i needed for the new aeromotive fuel pump location...

and here'* the second boost/vac gauge...gotta collect the whole set still...
gotta love them procomp ultra lites


BTW thats 120$ in just the braided hose and fittings...extra 50$ on the gauge
i have yet to weld in the rest of the 10pt (well it will be a 12pt) when we also do the dash, so we really dont have a shortage of stuff to do.

3ft and 6ft 6an stainless with fittings for trans cooler, trans circulation pump and checkvalve manifold assembly (another 150$)

all for this guy...it lets the rear trans be in neutral with the 3800 off while driving down the road, keeps you from frying clutches (used alot in RV/flat towing fwd cars) also note the high temp reflective thermal mat by CoolTec...the pump and checkvalve manifold have since been mounted and plumbed and look f&c%in sexy....

believe it or not steel, gas, supplies and the new parts only brings the twin engine conversion cost to 4000$ so far....
this car is gonna be sooo much fun with two 300-400Hp engines, cant imagin two 500Hp beasts

just finished washing all the dust and grinding crap off of 'er and did a bunch of polishing, so more pics to come with the Tq star rims on it...

BTW we missed driving the 442! need to get that rear throttle cable finished...it'* no fun with just one engine

Regards, James and Al

If I ever feel the urge to do huge body/drivetrain modifications to my car, I know who I'm calling. This car is absolutely amazing, guys! There can't be more than a couple people in the entire country who have done these kinds of modifications to a modern car with computer engine management. I have the utmost respect for all the time and effort invested, and can't wait to see the finished product.

Keep it up. You're doing something truly original.

Thanks! we certainly enjoy the two engines as often as we can
went to the paradise road cruisers show at the shaumburg AZ...
...and we won the "most appreciated" car trophy!

was a great night, we werent expecting a trophy but when a gentlman (that was part of the 30 odd guys oggling the 442) said dont you guys leave!

i thought he was getting his buddy to come over...lol

suprized the hell outa me and Al when they said "and the winner of the most appreciated car goes to the 94 Olds 442, the car with two engines built by two nuts"
i just about choked on the Bday cake they were serving...

it was nice seeing peoples reactions to starting up two V6'*

PICS!

the various 3800'*... the one on the silver stand is the Tall deck SI/SII Hybrid, orange stand has the 98 SII L36 that i'm rebuilding to go in the front of the 442, the other is a junk 97 SII block i'm using for my oiling experiments and fabrication work

Oh and before the show Al and I did some work on the 68 F250 camper special (the 442 tow vehicle/track truck)
we put my 86 F150 bench seat in er' (i have lots more pics of the 35+ years of dirt etc). the 68 bench seat had a spring that was a bit anoying...

Oh and the Bday present my old man got me at the HUGE! Wilcott truck stop in iowa...
genuine chrome plated nude chicks (yes they even have nipples!)

i apologize the above pics are a little old...the 442 is even cleaner!
we finished replumbing the brake lines, the two proportioning valves were reduced to one now by the master cylinder with a T block and another in the rear, this has improved the brake pedal (fluid flows through 1 line instead of 2) but it looks like we will have to get the larger bore covette master cylinder because of the massive rear calipers, she still locks em up but the pedal is too close to the floor...
we also got rid of a couple old lines, the one brake line nolonger used and the 1/4 evap line which isnt used with the fuel cell

we finally painted the rear calipers and fronts all black and i spent some serious time cleaning the rims (look at the backside!)

and the painted covers in Hairy Hurst Olds colors (we gotta finish the front cover)...but it is handy having two oil fills...lol

taa daa! we also mounted a blue neon light in there real close to the trunk springs

I finished the wiring, 6 switches control the aeromotive fuel pump, trans circulation pump, rear cooling fan, rear pcm power, lights, and the rear starter (pushbutton). now we are working on the rear throttle cable and the aluminum 3 piece top firewall cover

I love this car

yes it is Al'* daily driver, though now we cleaned the **** outta it he doesnt like to drive it in the rain (if you thought it was a bit*h cleaning one engine compartment, try cleaning two of em) it has only seen 1 winter so far...most of the time it'* in the garage torn apart when the snow falls...

i try to keep all the threads updated as much as possible but we should be making good progress this winter on the rear turbo install, though i also want to get the SII together for the front as well

we will be putting another 01 GP GT harness and PCM in the rear, so i can Powrtune the SI with the turbo
i can only imagine how well the 442 will do with two turbocharged SI and SII 3800'*
much less my max effort SI/SII Hybrid
