Default Boost'* weekend 090410

Nearly every weekend of decent weather there'* something going on in the garage at my place (reminds us of Dan, doesn't it).

Here'* a few highlights from this weekend.
2000 GP GT, Mileage unknown, 3rd time in the garage (last year he topswapped with IC and 1.9RR'*, blew it up and L67'd).

His trans was shot and he already had parts for a Gen V conversion. A built up trans with 1" GMR chain was on tap to go in.

There'* no shots of the removal or build up of the engine. Here'* the engine after I finished with it, connected to it'* new trans. It'* now an XP cam, 105# springs instead of LS6, Gen V, IC'd engine.

Some GP guys might notice something about the passenger side dog bone doesn't look "normal" to them. It'* been BillBoosted Braided fuel lines were tossed on for a better connection because the L36 lines don't mate well to the PRJ logs he added and he always had leaks from the ZZP modded rails that are meant to work with the L36 to L67 swaps. Something about the way the connections sit on things didn't let them work well.

Back to the dog bone comment. The GP'* have a big cast iron mount that bolts to the end of the head for coils and hooks to the passenger side dogbone. When looking for more belt wrap, frequently they swap over to a driverside GXP mount (stronger) and leave the passenger side off. We chose to use the newer NA passengerside mount and a Bonneville coil pack bracket/tensioner. This gave us more belt wrap and kept the second dog bone. (note: he has shortened dog bones on the car)

A standard type of mod visit for me where I have the car come in on a Friday night and leave Sunday afternoon. It'* a good bit of work in short time, dedication and drive is how it all gets done that quick.

Well, now that my faire season is over, I'm sure my shop will start to look like that again. Good work Bill. Another happy GM owner.

Does he have a cold box or something for the air filter? Just curious.

I like the fact he'* got a minimal curve on the pipe and doesn't mess around with piping, just goes straight to air filter. I would think a cold box would finish it off.

Yeah Dan...I figured you would start back up soon, haven't you been plugging a few in during the week?

He was really working out a cramp from kneeling on the LIM to bolt the rear header up. I happened to have the camera in my hand when he jumped up to a standing position on top of the motor.

On the air filter. He has a JMB type intake that a guy (thief in the end) named TDC Racing was making. Overall it'* a nice setup that pulls from the fender. It was made for a Gen 3 with an N* intake. Being that the Gen V is about an inch longer and we were doing some other stuff he opted to go direct to the filter until he had some excess time on his hands. During this type of build, the schedule is usually wake up to an alarm at 7-8am and move at a hell of a pace until close to midnight-2am. Being his third time in with motor being pulled we had a good rythm that we've developed and things got done rather quckly leaving us some extra time to sleep a bit later and hang out with neighbors for a couple hours. First timers usually need to be shown/walked through a lot of stuff, this can actually take longer than if I did the stuff all myself. Teaching is power.

Raptor.. I have a truck, and a garage full of 3800 parts. Bolts missing, cylinder head cracked..not an issue.

Nicely done! That'* a very cool transmission color, too. Did you rebuild his old transmission? And lastly, what'* the FDR, 3.29?
