Today I got a LOT done....







I need to figure out fuel line routing, throttle cable, and button up some wiring. Down-pipes are off to have the new O2 bungs welded in. Making some major headway!

That's going to be a head turner once you pop the hood...if it in fact gets a hood.

I'm going to go out to my Tahoe to confirm it still starts, and that you didn't steal that from it. Smile

HAHA! Matt your funny.

I need to come up with something cool for the cold air intake setup.

I absolutely love how the efi stuff is coming out so far. I wish I had done this from the get-go.

This is what I would like to do to my old Impala. I was wary of EFI, because the car is obviously a factory carbureted car, so I'd need fuel lines, tank would need to be changed out I guess, etc. But something about the fuel injection seems a little more trouble free. There's a lot of room in that car's engine bay so I'm wondering if the truck 5.3 would drop right in while allowing the hood to still close.

I think it absolutely would fit without hood modifications. Especially if you went with the newer style truck intake (its more flat and a tad shorter overall).

I am still using my modified Carb fuel tank with an inline Walbro, so don't think you are set in getting a newer tank. Not exactly necessary if you get creative.

I was thinking the tank needed baffles inside of it to keep the fuel sloshing away from the pump or something like that...I wasn't sure.


Either way it's definitely in the cards for the car's future as the original engine is your typical smog era 350...it works but I think the car would be a lot cooler with an LSX in it.

So, tell me again how you can run knock sensors with a solid mounted motor? Razz How's the tuning going? Running and driving yet?

Looks great man! Good to see you step into the 21st century! Wink

I considered going carb when I did mine, but when it was all said and done I loved being EFI just because of the lack of tuning, the easy start, and the simplicity once it was all done. I didn't have a carb to compare it to, but I just love the throttle response.

It's running and driving great! I could not be much more happy then I am right now. Tuning is going slow....learning curve for me....but I will figure it all out.

No issues with the knock sensors. I have 0* of retard on every scan. Seems to be alright so far. Only thing I can think of is with plates, you are spreading the solid surface over a greater distance where with solid mounts, all the vibrations are concentrated to 2 or 4 cylinders.

Any chance we'll see it at the mod day on the 28th?

Yea...been rolling without the hood. I really need to track one down....I am not looking to get involved with swapping to the aluminum one right now, and my stocker had a mishap...

The 28th most likely won't work for me. I am trying to make it to the track next weekend.

Gotcha! So, you need a hood eh? There's a yard in Norton that has a box with hood. Cars usually don't disappear from there. They've got like 12 80's Monte Carlo SS since I was in HS.

Otherwise, I'll keep a look out.

Believe it or not....those are stock replacement KYB with 2 coils cut from the 6 cylinder springs. The car is very light in the nose now....

Speaking of springs....today I swapped out my rear coil-over springs for a set of grand national's with a 1" spacer. I think it looks really good.





I ordered the 28" (275/60r15) BFGoodrich drag radials today. I am thinking with the shorter tire, I should be able to pull the 1" spacer, lower the rear down some more, and run g-body rear shocks to keep the springs from falling out. Depending on how this looks, I may even try and run the GN springs up front with g-body shocks and see how the car lays down....but it's hard to beat the looks right now in my opinion.

I'm sure the Moogs are nice...but you guys have to remember....im not anywhere close to stock weight anymore. I'm afraid if I order moogs I will be closer to stock ride height lol.

What I really need to do is get the car on some scales and find out the corner weights.

Stock height??? I'm not at stock height with the Moog 5662s....
Look at my build thread. Last page should have recent (last month) pics.
They are for camaros and such. They dropped the 9c1 (from stock height) like 4 inches and lifted it (from cut SS springs) almost 2 inches.

It's a healthy median and I'm running a 26 or 27 inch combo.

I understand that your car and every other 4k plus lb b-body sit lower on those springs. What I am trying to say is given my extreme weight reduction, along with how the weight has been moved around the chassis from stock config, im not confident I would achieve the same drop as you have.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if I pulled 800-1k lbs out of this car lol. I need to get it on the scales this week.

15x8 3.5" offset, sitting on the BFG 275/60r15 drag radials...





Sits more level....fills up the wheel well nicely. I am happy!

Also picked up a hood today, new mirrors, and a bunch of misc interior parts. Starting to look like a respectable car again!

So at the junkyard the other day....I was SUPER excited to find that Caprice that had the same exact interior as mine. I was able to grab all the odds and ends I was missing and or broken on my car. Also snagged some missing stainless trim, emblems and etc.

My buddy Casey came and helped out quite a bit...



We took the car out yesterday for a while. Starting to looke pretty legit all cleaned up LOL

Scrap yard Wink Just find something in the trash and bring it in. You can get paid a few cents to weigh your car!

Made it to the track today!

I couldnt be happier.....stock truck timing tune with a few adjustments elsewhere....

13.1@104 with a god awful 1.97 60'

If I can get the chassis sorted out and get the 60' down, car should go 12.8x on motor!
If I really start getting into the tune, I don't see 12.5x being out of the question....

Pretty amazing from a BONE STOCK L33 with 140+k miles. And yes....I drove it too and from the track!






Time slips and video tomorrow.

Pretty impressive. Must've been hella fun too! Any problem hooking up off the line? How'd the rear tires work out?

Assuming the stock version of your car would be like a 18 second 1/4 mile, anybody not knowing your car and mods was probably like "holy sh!$. Really??? Grandmas got balls!"

Sweet sleeper to say the least.

There were certainly some issues getting out of the gate. My converter is a 2200 and right around where it stalls, the pcm is low on commanded timing. I think I need to add timing so it doesn't fall off the hit. I don't think it was spinning, but it was hard to say the way it dips. I will review the logs tonight and try to get an idea of what happened.

every tenth off your 60' is double up tup. If I can get back to a 1.7 I should be at 12.7x with no other changes

I'm confident you can make that happen and give the track a run for its money next time.
