Hey guys.

Been away, but I am getting my Caprice back (among all the other bs I have going on lol).
Anyways, long story short, I have made arrangements to get back my old car, and It will be getting dropped off as soon as i finish up a few more projects that are occupying my space at the moment.

I have been kicking myself in the but for quite some time now for getting rid of it. I notice a few new user-names when I occasionally check in...so for anyone who hasn't seen the car before...this WAS my caprice:





Ran 12.3x all day long

____________________________________________________________________________________

Right now as it sits, the car is just a rolling chassis. No motor or trans, but interior and etc is all still there the way I left it. It will be a long haul but I am looking to set it up to race the LSX Real Street Radial shoot out. Fastest car in the class right now is a nitrous f-body running mid-high 8's ....so obviously if I plan on being even KINDA competitive I have a lot of work to do.

My personal goal is to get the car to be still streetable and run 8.9x
If I can get there...then all the merrier.

Well anyways...I don't have a ton of stuff to post up yet (seeing how the car is still at my friends)...but I do have some tear-down photos from today of my new motor. I picked up a 2011 LC9 short block (all aluminum 5.3) that had eaten a bolt. The bolt didn't do any damage to the bores, but it did bang up a few pistons. I got it on the stand and stripped down today to see what was going on. Here are the photos as I went...






Being that the short block is an LC9, it has VVT and DOD that will need to be delted. That is the goofy cam phaser on the front timing cover and the ribbed valley cover on top, along with the lifters all have to go.






After all the junk was torn off, out came the pistons and rods for some inspection.





...So basically I made out!
2 pistons were cracked, but not one sleeve/ bore was damaged. All the rod bearings and mains looked mint. Not comes the hard part....I have to decide what is the best game plan for the block. Stay stock displacement, stroker, re sleeve, and etc....

Nice dude, good to see the car back as well as your posts. Is this going to be EFI or carbureted?

You won't see me in the caprice for a while, but I am by your house all the time lately. My daily is a 91 Red Notchback Mustang

X2!

I can't wait to see it again! It'd be awesome to park two white cars side by side you know, one two door one four door. Maybe even on the dragstrip! But I think you'd win Embarassed

PostSubject: Intake Choice?   Tue Jun 12, 2012 11:13 pm

Alright guys...

I have been lurking around the forums and net looking at what is available for intake choices. Still seems pretty basic, Vic Jr, Super Vic, and GMPP.

However...I am really taking a liking to the new Holley Hi Ram....I know they are tall, but overall the LS engine sits lower in the car (and I did fit a super vic intake with a 1" nitrous plate under my flat hood before LOL)

What do you guys think?

Here is a sheet metal intake that shares very similar dimensions in a chevelle to give you an idea...

I think overall I would be hard pressed to find an off the shelf intake that will flow more than this Haha.
