Well I'm just about done with my house remodel finally and my little guy just turned 1 so its been an extremely busy last 2+ years. Not to mention I work a reg 60hr job a week and am going to fire school at nights. I've finally had to say its time to do something for me and get back to working on this truck. I have slowly been accumulating little parts here and there but nothing major that made me feel worthy of posting but this morning that changed.
I just got off the phone with Paul at American Powertrain. He help me put the transmission together and get the ball rolling on this longggggg project.
I ordered a T-56 Magnum, with quick time bell housing and also their shifter that they have built to be using in our lightnings.
This has done 2 things to my project
1. its gotten the ball rolling again and makes me feel much better about getting back in the garage.
2. Its changed the direction of my project as a whole.
- The originally plan was basically gutting the truck and building a full on, badass race truck for the mile. This included a fully built GT motor with a set of twins.
- The truck is now going 6 speed to have more of the fun factor to it and allow me to use the truck more in hopes that my son will one day learn and enjoy these things like I have. The truck will still get the GT motor as I have already acquired its and its sitting in the garage. Just have to assemble the long block. But the biggest thing is the truck is now going to get either a 4.5L whipple or larger KB. @harley
356 I may be in touch about the 4.7 haha. I also already have the GT lower manifold and intercooler setup so I'll be going twin injector as well.
I will keep everything posted once the time comes but for now that is all.
BTW trying to figure out a new way to post some pictures since photobucket is not the same any more.
