Hold onto it for the young buck! Hes gunna need it haha.

In all seriousness, I greatly appreciate it, but I will just order up a container of it. Will be nice to have on hand for misc. projects anyways. I actually have an idea for some control arms and some of that stuff would come in handy.

Here I was gonna offer to drive it out to ya when I get my stash! Such a nice guy.

Control arms eh? hmm I can't wait to see where that goes having the mounts come out so awesome!

PostSubject: Updates!   Sun Aug 05, 2012 5:08 pm

I got a decent little amount done over the weekend. I mainly concentrated on the trunk, but I tackled a few other little odd jobs as well.

At this point, roughly 75% of the body is bolted down. I ran out of the shortened metric flange bolts I need and nobody has them in stock! Evil or Very Mad
Anyways, I ordered some from Fastenal and they should be here Tuesday.

As I mentioned before, I wanted to get the carpet all done and installed in my trunk, but it never left the factory with the studs for the retention clips. I came up with a decent fix. I was originally going to get the right threaded rod and weld it in place, but I decided to go this route instead:




From the backside (under the rear valance) using the carpet as a template, I drilled the four mounting points. Each hole received a stainless 1" button head bolt, along with a stainless fender washer. I used some black rtv under the fender wash to prevent any leaks or rust. Inside the trunk is a stainless net with an integral star washer to lock the stud into place. The oem clips threaded right on no problem.

After the stud issue was resolved, I machined some threaded aluminum spacers for the battery box. The studs come from under the floor pan and through the threaded spacers, then the battery box drops into place.



I also installed the billet nitrous bottle bracket and battery box. The trunk is about 90% done now. I still need to run the battery cables through the bulk head fitting in the rear, install the passenger sail panel, and install the vent tube for the battery box.






The best part is....there is still enough room in that trunk to take a vacation! lol

I did a little work on the rear bumper area too. The bumper has been stripped of the inner aluminum support as well as the frame mounted crash absorbers. I mounted the battery shut-off in the rear bumper shell, and it will be attached to the frame horns with a round chromolly. I got everything mocked up and test fit with where the bumper will sit (sucked in and dropped).







Last but not least is a little eye candy...






New B&M blacked out pro ratchet stealth shifter, and edelbrock vic jr for the lsx

PostSubject: Nitrous School   Mon Aug 06, 2012 8:35 pm

So some of you guys may already know, but I spend a lot of time developing new nitrous products and testing them on my own, as well as my friends vehicles. I have been working carefully on a new design for my LS motor to really let it shine without putting a massive hit on the stock cast pistons. I wanted to share the rough model I built today of my new manifold fogger nozzle.



Now keep in mind, I am NOT a machinist. This is just a sample/ model I fabricated in the lathe from solid 6061 round stock. The end product will be much nicer looking when I let my machinist have his way with it, but this is just my method of giving him a basic platform to work off.

The idea behind this nozzle is to suspend it from a link-bar style plate or spacer. Basically, it would be a solid machined aluminum spacer with what will appear to be a traditional spray bar (but is actually just a passage to this unit). A nozzle like the one I machined here will be suspended into the plenum from the center of the link bar, and offer 360* of nitrous and fuel flow directed at each individual runner. This should promote better distribution when compared to the traditional nitrous plate systems.

I am also reversing traditional theory of having the nitrous holes on top spraying down onto the path of fuel. The theory has always been the nitrous pressure (900 psi), shooting down on top of the fuel outlets would help to atomize the fuel drops. The only problem with this in my opinion is that any of the fuel misses the nitrous and "falls" from the spray bar, it has nowhere to go but down onto the manifold floor where it could potentially puddle.

I am taking the fuel outlets and running them above the nitrous outlets almost parallel. The theory here is that eventually the fuel WILL fall (fuel is heavier then air), and when it does, it will fall into the stream of high pressure nitrous, providing a higher concentration of an atomized mixture rate with less loss to the manifold and runner floor.

All in the building stages now, but I think we are on course to have the prototype plate on the car for the race in September.

The motor and trans are IN and not being supported by BLOCKS! YAY lol




bye-bye mounts!



....On a serious note, this is coming out awesome. Mike at Robinson's Race Cars has gone above and beyond helping me on this one. The time, preparation and thought that has gone into this layout is pretty amazing, and its pretty exciting to see the work coming together. For those of you not familiar with Mike's work, this is his personal car: http://www.carcraft.com/featuredvehicles/ccrp_1108_1971_ford_maverick/viewall.html
_______________________________________________________________________________________

We have spent the last three days cleaning the 35 layers of undercoating and grease off the frame, test fitting, measuring, measuring and measuring some more. Overall, it is amazing how well all the piece I have are working together and fitting correctly.

If you look closely at the center line of the crank, you will see the front hub is almost perpendicular to the spindles (meaning all the weight is past the front tires and off the nose. Perfect for a drag car and weight transfer).



You will also notice the saddles Mike incorporated into the front of the frame, so when the motor drops in, it is essentially keyed.




The motor is low and far back which is exactly what I wanted. The f-body oil pan clears with no notch and is still above the crossmember. The headers I have are Doug's 98-02 F-Body shorties that I removed all of the emissions junk from and had stainless vibrant v-bands welded to. These also fit very well and clear the control arms and steering shaft.

Tomorrow there is some finish welding that needs to be done and the final test fit. The plate and saddles will all get smoothed radius when I know where my accessories are going to sit, but the hard part is just about DONE!

Made some progress but nothing life-altering LOL

The car is back at my house, and I stripped the front frame rails up to the firewall. I pressure-washed and wire wheeled them, and put a few coats of Rustoleum primer/ flat black. I didn't go too nutty because the body is coming off the frame before the cage over the winter anyways, but it will look good and hole me over for now:







All the finish welding has been done on the front plate and mid plate mounts and saddles. I dropped the motor back in today and had to make a little more clearance in a few areas (mainly crossmember and firewall). I also fabricated the engine limiter mounting pad on the block and finished up the rod assembly, I will have final installed photos of that tomorrow.

Mid plate installed, still needs some clearance and paint:












I just realized how much I need to get done in the next three weeks....

Limiters are finished, plate is bolted down, squared and radiused. electric water pump should be here saturday. Transmission, converter, and flex are going in this weekend. I am hoping to have the complete drivetrain in and ready to be plumbed.

so SICK of the stupid set-backs!

After work last night (i get out at midnight), I decided it would be a good idea to put the transmission in.....seeing how I had nothing but other problems this weekend. I loaded up my B&M convertor, stuffed the trans up under the car (with the help of a co-worker), and realized that the convertor doesn't spin! Like a Star @ heaven

Must be something in the pump gears...not really sure yet....but I have to snap the trans back out today. Also...drive shaft is way too long now (which isn't the end of the world. I was expecting that one now the motor is so far back).

As for progress...front suspension is almost done and ready to go back on the car.



I loaded up the control arms with new Energy Suspension bushings and Delco ball joints. All sand blasted and painted up!




I also had Mike help me with the flexplate. Instead of doing the typical old LSX community grind out the holes....we indexed the correct th350/th400 pattern and re-drilled the plate.





The mid plate is finished as well. Everything is radiused and painted. Exhaust clearance is perfect as well as starter and etc.





It's getting there, but everything I touch ends up requiring 3 hours of repair time, and everything I order is updated as back-order a week later LOL

Oh-well. Name of the game.

The car is rolling again!

Got a head start this morning on getting all the front suspension back in place. I am wicked happy with the results, and the ride height is MINT. I took a full coil and a half out of the 6 cylinder springs. (with all the weight off the nose, the car was 4x4 status).

Bent up all the stainless hard lines for the front today and mounted the Wilwood prop valve. It came out really nice, pics don't do it justice.









The braided lines from the hard-line to the calipers are getting made tomorrow. Along with a fuel line or two Wink

Awesome! This build is one of my favs.

Looks like you'll be making your deadline. I'd like to come out and see it at the strip someday.

Keep up the good work! A lot of well thought out and executed work has been done here.

Thanks man. Its pretty much do or die this weekend. Depending on what I accomplish will dictate whether or not I am making it, and at this point funds are tight (my son starts soccer this week. Can't believe he's already old enough). But. I havent lost hope yet!.

List Of Necessities:
-Driveshaft
-Fuel pump and lines (already snatched the regulator).
-Rear mount transmission cooler and lines
-Battery for the box, and associated wiring
-Rear bumper support
-Mount the manual steering box
-Mount the radiator and electric fans
-MSD 6010
-Swap left rear axle and brakes
-Install the ratchet shifter

List Of Not So Necessary:
-One of my "one-off" CNC Nitrous Plate and Solenoids and Wiring
-Mold the Aluminum Hood into the header panel
-Rear anti-roll bar
-Change the carpet to lighter stuff
-Weld a patch over the old shifter hole
-Set of 15x10s

Taking a little break and decided to post up the progress I made today...

Start off with the MSD 6010



I must admit....as of late I have been pretty unhappy with MSD's products and service...however, this LS box is REALLY nice. The finish on the housing and the quality of the included harness and connectors is top notch. My only complaint is the cable for tuning the timing curves....it's serial to serial. I don't even think you can still buy a laptop with a serial port lol.

Anyways...I know a lot of guys mount these under the hood (or on the intake), but I really don't like either one of those options. Instead, I was fortunate enough to have enough length in the harness to run the box inside in the passenger kick panel area.

A few years back I had made an aluminum kick panel that served perfectly for mounting the 6LS. I painted the aluminum panel with wrinkle black, then top coated it with SEM blue to match my interior and give it a sorta plasticy look.




On top of the kick panel you might notice a wiring distribution strip. That goes to the relay control center I incorporated into the backside of my hvac delete panel:



The electric water pump and the radiator/ fans are mounted. I am running the race pump so there is no provision for thermostat. Instead, I will just run the pump of a temperature switch (or manually overide in the event the temp switch fails). The radiator and fans are from a 95 LT1 Trans Am, so the radiator is the thicker 1-3/8" core.







Front brake lines are completed and retain the oem clips.




Fuel pressure regulator mount came out pretty nice as well. I am running it through the motor plate (on the return side), and around the plate on the feed. The outlet line attached in the photos is just for testing, and that will not be the final routing.






I wasn't going to run a bypass fuel system this time, but after a lot of thought I decided it was still the best route to take and worth the extra line.

When I was trying to find this information out, all the posts online were somewhat hazy...but just to be clear....s10 manual steering box is a bolt in replacement when used with the b-body pitman arm:




I got my transmission dipstick in today, and the fuel lines are done and routed. I need to finish up my Alternator mount and do some wiring and I think I can start the car!

I tried like hell....but I am out for Saturday. Between work and life I just can't finish what I need too with one day left. I still think I can at the very least get the car moving under its own power Sunday, but It won't be race ready. It's all good....I still have almost two months before the tracks are closed....and I guarantee you WILL see some video of this thing in the next few weeks.

Progress is going to be awfully slow for the next week or so (one of my co-workers is on vaca and I will be doing quite a bit of OT to pick up the slack).

...Anyways....me being the cheap son of a gun I can be...I came up with a fuel rail for my carb today lol.
I took an over-sized Dominator rail, cut it in half, removed a big chunck from either end, and used some 3/8" compression with -6AN line to finish it all up. Looks better then the aftermarket ones! lol

Alright guys....I wanted to share a little something I have been working on for the Caprice...





This is my "nitrous ramp" system I designed. Basically, in combination with the plate I am having cnc machined, it will allow me to completely control time based where nitrous comes in and goes out. It incorporates three seperate stages (utilizing 3 completely different pair of solenoids, and different size shots). Stage 1 is a typical micro switch on-off, stage 2 & 3 are run off the timers pictured, and can be set to delay or stop early the nitrous delivery.

I just bench tested the unit as awhole and I am VERY excited to try it out.
This paired with the MSD, would basically be like chemically turbo charging!

I think I need to take a vacation & camp out at your shop.

Lots of stuff there I know nothing about, but for some reason I'm drawn to it. bounce

Looking forward to the launch cheers

Haha, I love the sound these engines make, it reminds me of some sort of 1960s open exhaust trans am series car or something, raspy. My Tahoe sounds like that up close to the exhaust pipe, kinda funny.

That was a cool vantage point seeing the front suspension articulate, don't see that too often...
