02-22-2009, 03:04 AM

still debating what color i should paint the background and if i should put the black trim rings on
02-22-2009, 03:06 AM
bought a trans rebuild kit but dont have anybody to rebuild it for me, i dont have much money and i dont wanna take that task on myself.
anyone willing to rebuild my trans we can work out some type of payment?
02-22-2009, 06:17 AM
gut that thing out LOL
02-22-2009, 08:46 AM
I'm doing pretty much the same to my impala so far I took all the crap off from the engine bay. And completely gutted the interior. I'm just gonna add lw carpet, a kirkey seat and a chris alston moly roll cage. (Yes they make it for impalas 2!!!) its looking good tho what do u have done to the motor?
02-22-2009, 12:39 PM
once didnt u have a iroc ? i believe ive seen u on the 3rdgen boards
02-22-2009, 01:43 PM
i like those gauges and the way you laid them out.
02-22-2009, 02:25 PM
i wanna put a 4 point in it later on.
um the motor is pretty much stock bottom end, 1.6 stamped rockers,decent size cam, 2000 vortec heads, ebay intake, ebay HEI dist, holley 670cfm carb, a/c and smog delete, and Hedman LT hedders.
gonna be buying some slicks off my buddy, tryin to decide what size stall i want(thinkin around 2800) and maybe later a shot.
heres the cam specs:
and yes TPI TERROR i used to own this this 87 IROC (a.k.a INTIMIDATOR Z):
02-22-2009, 02:41 PM

02-23-2009, 12:02 PM

02-23-2009, 01:14 PM
yup thats bodywerkz, i get all my exhaust work and some body work there. he does great work and pretty much anythign you think of he can do it.
he did a crazy custom cold air intake for my iroc before.
02-23-2009, 01:15 PM
nice setup. I'm doing something similar on my 91 RS but instead of ditching crossfire i'm ditching tbi
02-23-2009, 01:16 PM

02-23-2009, 01:24 PM

02-23-2009, 05:02 PM
here they are behind the steering wheel
02-23-2009, 08:23 PM
Nice, btw, love the Ford Racing shirt you had on.
02-23-2009, 10:39 PM
oh that was my buddy. yeah he did that on purpose. which is funny cause he was building a mustang with a LQ9 but he traded it for a datsun and is now puttin that motor in it.
02-23-2009, 11:09 PM
I still have it mike ended up fixing it up
02-24-2009, 02:21 AM
yeah see you put the hood on it. send me some pics of how it looks now.
03-07-2009, 04:10 AM
just wondering. had to force the belt on btu do you think this is too much slack?
03-09-2009, 03:27 AM
well did some more work today. mounted the motor in to get an idea if the hoods gonna clear. it hits a little bit.
03-09-2009, 09:59 AM
If u need clearance get a drop base air filter. With my old setup my hood wouldn't close. I ordered a k&n 1 1/4 drop base and that took care of the problem. The drop base was around 20 or so dollars.
03-09-2009, 01:21 PM
i do have the drop base. its hitting on the wingnut. i either have to find a flat top for the air cleaner or my friend gave me the idea of gettin rid of the dip in the hood and just makin it flat.
03-09-2009, 01:36 PM
Autozone sells these kits for that air cleaner bolt and wing nut. I bought one and they have different lengths. I was able to make mine work with the smaller one. They have them in the "performance" section there where all the chrome stuff is. I also was able to get a differnt type of wing nut there that worked better. The screw on mine just barely sticks out enough for the nut to thread on it a bit.
03-09-2009, 01:40 PM
yeah im gonna try one of those.i know what your talkin about (chrome section) haha. i hate that all that stuff is chrome. so cheesy and not good for motors.
03-09-2009, 01:44 PM
Yeah they're pretty useful it comes with a kit of about 5 different lenghts and it also has a nut to put two of those screws together to make your own sizes.
03-09-2009, 03:31 PM
i think another thing is i didnt have the tranny bolt up so i dont even know if thats the correct angle of the car. it might drop down a little more after i put the tranny on. if not ill think of something. maybe seal the air cleaner to the hood. the great thing abotu the 84 vette hoods is they have to little vents that go right up to where the air cleaner is. sort of a ram air affect.
it wasnt rubbing much cause i got the hood to close without really pushing on it.
03-09-2009, 04:29 PM
on mine it would not close at all before the drop base lol. it would just sit on the air cleaner and would not latch.
03-13-2009, 01:47 PM
got some new 5 way adjustable shocks (painted them cause i didnt like the white and pink)
also tested the gauges out. hopefully gonna get it running soon.
03-13-2009, 02:39 PM
nice did you set up the gauges to do that like the c5s??
03-13-2009, 05:55 PM
what do you mean? the full sweep part? the gauges came like that.
03-13-2009, 06:57 PM
yeauupp.. thats sweet!
03-14-2009, 11:17 PM
well got it running today. didnt get to run it long enough to brake in the cam but here it is open header
03-15-2009, 01:25 AM
Very Nice. I take it that is a 350? What CR? how much you think yu will make with it?
If you need the trans rebuilt let me knw we can get that done for a reasonable price.
Hope you get it all put back to gether in time. :D
03-15-2009, 02:41 AM
yeah just a 350. not exactly sure on CR at the moment. hopin to make 3-350 to the wheels after dynotuning.
i ended up gettin the trans built for a pretty good price.
