Paul, the smoke is from the motor swap. Typical fluid leaks burning off. Probably from Pdad dousing the rear bank of the valvetrain after he installed it (oil and cam/lifter prelube).

Eric, the valvecovers are F-body aluminum valvecovers with wrinkle coating to dissipate heat like the SC. Laser engraving as well, of course.

Intercooler isn't hooked up yet. Wiring and plumbing will be today, and will be covered in Performance and Brainstorming.

Work on Pdad'* car never happened. His needle bearing grease and TB adapter never arrived in time. Irony wil prevail, and they'll arrive today. I still have all parts here, so I can match the adapter to the GenV, and build the SC. Pdad and Pmom will make another trip down soon for the install, and some pre-arranged work underneath by my local exhaust guy.

Edit:

Vid of the startup (had been running about 10 seconds). Fired on the first crank, no lifter clatter at all (these are the lifters from the donor Riviera motor).

The smoke can also be outgassing of new paint too, and greasy palm prints all over the exhaust manifolds. Any motor will smoke after a swap, even brand new ones.

Sounds pretty spot-on from the video, but we are going to eventually want more...like a drive-by, or a Goodyear Roast. Yeah......

Damn hard to break these 245 T1R'* loose, but I'll do my best. Still have alot of PCM re-learning to do, and I'd imagine I have some minor tweaks and tuning as well. This motor runs totally different (much better compression, runs cooler), and flows FAR different now with the Intercooler machining.

I'm off to install the STB and a couple other minor goodies, then to the store for fluids and 1" wire loom to hide the tubing. Lots to do today.

Oh, sorry to hear O'Neil had to leave to attend to family matters before he could do his work.
