Car has been back from the body shop for about a week now, and everything came out pretty good. I really love the color...

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zpsa0dd1a0f
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps61afe20f

There was a lot of over-spray in the engine bay, so I spent the little bit of time I had this week on that. I got it all cleaned up, masked and painted. In the end, I brought the engine bay paint high enough on the fender to add a little pin-stripe. I think it brakes everything up nicely. I took some time to make a new heater delete panel as well (the old one had a bunch of holes in it from the various motors over the past few years).

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps3cf422fd
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps4e646895

Intercooler and charge pipe kit came in as well. I went with a 31x12x3 same side setup (mainly because of the way I want to plumb the kit). I had to cut down the outlet on the end-tank to clear the headlight bucket, but no big deal.

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps4771ebfb
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps79c41ff8

Tomorrow should be the big day. I plan on getting the motor back into the car. If I can find the time, I would love to mount the cooler and start building the cold side as well, but I am still waiting on the intake to arrive.

Regardless...making some headway. Maybe one pass this year isn't out of the question just yet.

First off, quick thanks to Justin for stopping by today. We didn't get much done while he was over, but he threw around some ideas that helped me out!

Moving on....as I am sure you gathered from the photo above....engine is in the bay!
....However....it was not without incident! I have clearance issues with the brake booster and steering column that I am trying to correct.

You can sorta get an idea of the clearance issues here...

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zpsd16e2c94
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps24d8a860

Plenty of room on the other side however!

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps2e4cce43

After the motor was in place, I test fit the intercooler some more. I really like the core in the upper grill area even though its not 100% centered (due to the end tank configuration).

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps750fdaed

Ended up fabricating a shelf (similar to my turbo support) for the intercooler to rest on. Ended up working out awesome! (thanks Justin)

I scored a sweet deal on a Summit (Northern) radiator. It is a full sizer that I was originally attempting to stay away from....but it JUST clears LOL

Fan will be mounted in-between the cooler and the rad to keep the clean lookign engine bay. I am so stoked with the way this thing is coming together!

That's all sweet progress dude! When you texted me last night I figured it was about doing something fun with that car, 100% better than all my LOFs and rotations this morning/afternoon.


Did I mention I was jealous of how complete and finished your car is compared to mine? JERK! Mad  Need more free time!

No problem man. Glad I could help. Even if it was just tossing around ideas. Shelf looks real nice. Arrow

I've been running pretty slow with the new addition to my family, but I am still chipping away slowly.

I am converting to a remote mount water pump. I don't want to worry about burning up the motor in my Meziere block mounted pump, and if I go bigger on the turbo (which I am sure I will), the exhaust housing is already at its clearance limit (and its only a .78 a/r). Not to mention it frees up a ton of room!

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zpsb74f7ebc
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps8adc373a

I also started building my breather tank (catch can). The base and lid are done, the baffle is finished, I just need to get it all welded together now. It has two -12 fittings which I am going to run up to the valve covers, and two 3" K&N filters.

Makes me feel lame for having a "downed" car due to a cracked flex plate.

Great work! Keep the ball rolling!

Got quite a bit done today, so I am pretty excited.

I got the lower charge pipes are all welded up (from the compressor to the intercooler) and fit into the chassis. I had the breather tank all welded up as well. It came out really nice!

4" tubing and the turbo blanket came in so I started on building the intake. The K&N has a mounting boss right on the front of the cones, so I mounted it up by the headlight bucket and plumbed the rest.

The intake has finally arrived!

Holley Modular Mid-Ram design. It takes all the features of the taller modular "Hi-Ram" and applies it to the dual 4150 pad manifold I have wanted for a while.

Here is the base of the intake, which is actually the cathedral port LSx "Dual Quad" intake.

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps86723226
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zpseff82d04

Here is the adapter plenum that allows you to bolt any top from the modular family on. Extremely nice design, and even has a provision for the stock style MAP sensors.

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps3e3bf5d4
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zpseb03e9b6

In my case, I opted for the single 92mm top. (sorry, I didn't take any pictures of just the top off the intake).

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zpsfb781167
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps52a0aa6c

It even came complete with billet fuel rails.

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps140a5acf

Being that the base was orignally a carb style intake, the pad slopes in one direction (to compensate for the general factory downward engine angle.) I had to mount the manifold base backwards to gain some clearance at the turbo merge.

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zpsf5d4a8d7
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps6befc24c

But being that the base and adapter simply use two 4150 flanges to bolt together, I think I am going to space the combination upwards an additional inch using a pair of nitrous plates.

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps6dda2788

Overall I am extremely happy with the intake, and I think I got pretty lucky with the fit. I really was not expecting it to pull through with the hot-side plumbing.
________________________________________________________________

Valve covers also came in. I wasn't going to go aftermarket...but these things were SOOOO cheap, and I needed something with more room to accommodate the -12an fittings for the breather tank.

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps21ba573c
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps22115e42
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zpsb99813c1

They seem pretty well built for the money. They did include cheap hardware and gaskets....and they were also a pain in the ass to line up on the heads, but they fit and they look good. The -12s are welded in and ready to go.

I really want to do something, but I am still undecided on how to tackle it! Speaking of which....does anyone have a set of plastic bubble inner fenders I could borrow to try???

-12 fittings are welded into the covers. Its looking pretty good.

eBay. They were 90 shipped lol.

the hardware is a joke, but the covers themselves were well built with thick rails. Alignment is kind of a bitch, but for the money, can't go wrong.

I'd trade Methanol injection for the Nitrous on a turbo application all day long, IMO.

My T went 11.80 on a stock turbo/stock longblock with pump gas & methanol.

My friends T went 11.30's on 60 turbo/stock longblock with pump gas & meth. 27 PSI Shocked

Car is without a doubt getting an Alky Control system. The nitrous system would be more then less to spool a massive turbo down the road, and short-term fix my spacing issue....but I corrected that today.

I love how mean the intake manifold looks hugging the merge...but it was definitely going to be a heat issue if I were to leave it at that height....not to mention the packaging constraints.

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps17e47d87

My solution was to raise the plenum 1" using 4150 4-hole spacers. This is where I was originally going to stuff the nitrous plates (and possibly utilize it down the road). However, it was more cost effective and efficient to just use the spacers.

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zpsd5cf844d
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps8519dfc9

I also cut back the inlet of the throttle body so the 4"-3" transition can be welded on and v-banded. It also makes the outlet come almost parallel to the ground as opposed to shooting down.

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zps0896ea84
My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 Temporary_zpsc9b8906e

I am sure I will fight the IAC steps in tuning a little, but I am confident I can correct them.

I was thinking 2 38s on each end.. I know the placement of them matter a lot and I don't have a lot of room near the turbo mount

haha! Setup like familiar!
nah, looking really good man.

I think two gates is just excess money (for any decent one).

what about running one on top of the merge right where your angle finder is?

Yes...you are correct. Optimum placement is inline on a straight before a radius....however, in a street application with a modest size turbo....you aren't going to see a problem regulating boost with a quality gate.

these vehicles are nothing but compromise at every turn. I would save my money and spend it elsewhere.

The aluminum reducer cone came in. I had it welded to the throttle body and v-banded. It transitions down to 3" (same as my charge pipes). I didnt compensate for the thickness of the v-band and clamp....it is REALLY tight LOL

Now I can finish the cold side and start on my fender exit exhaust.

Also...huge thanks to Steve for my first non-related motor purchase as of late...

My measurement wouldnt be accurate because I have the base of the plenum flipped the opposite way, plus I have 1" spacers. Your best bet is to reference the Holley technical drawing for sizes...

My exhaust will have a muffler right of the turbo...not wide open.

Street car is all in what you are comfortable driving on the street.
Some people go out and by Ford GT which is a bare bones, nothing electric, no radio race car and call it a "street car." Same thing with the Viper.

If I can register it, insure it, and drive it in nice weather to and from the track...hey it's streetable enough for my liking!

Slacking, but getting some motivation back slowly.
One way or another, I am taking this thing to Florida in October.

Cooling system is just about done. Only item left is to build the expansion tank for the steam ports.

Started fabrication on the stock location fuel cell. 16 gallons, and it will have a Holley Dominator 12-1400 submerged inside.

....and the 4.8 is for sale already......?

My LSx Swapped Box - Page 4 4_810


http://westernmass.craigslist.org/pts/4666943720.html

"Up for sale is the 2004 4.8L Long Block from my Turbo Caprice.

When I picked up the engine, it had just over 200k miles on it. It was in a fleet van and meticulously maintained. I have always kept up on the oil changes with quality filters and good oil.

The motor is stock rotating assembly and cylinder heads. The only changes made have been a Comp Thumpr Camshaft, Trick Flow Pushrods and Brian Tooley Valve Springs.

This motor trapped over 122mph in the 1/4 on low boost with a single 70mm turbo.
It runs flawlessly.

If you are looking for a cheap long block to drop in your car and have some fun, this is it. Or, rob the cam, springs and pushrods out of it for your 6.0 LQ4. No matter how you cut it, this is a smoking deal for an awesome running LSx motor. Great base for your first swap!

This sale is for long-block only.
-No intake manifold
-No oil pan
-No valve covers

If you need the above excluded items, I have stock pieces I can supply.

800.00 picked up in Indian Orchard"
