Conversions & Hybrids - 67 "CUT-LS" Cutlass Convertible LY6 / 4L85e Project
05-01-2012, 11:20 AM
This site has helped me in the past, so I thought I would throw up some pics of my 67 Oldz build. The car is..errrrr..was all original and super clean. It now has a 2009 LY6 prepped with Mast cam, springs, psi harness, hooker headers, LS3 intake, a 4L85e trans and a Ford Motorsports 3:70 posi 9inch rear. According to MAST, the motor should be in the 515-550 hp range. I built the car in my garage but it was tweaked & tuned by Larry @ Burke's Performance in Rincon, GA who has done an amazing job.
Hope you like the pics..if anyone out here is near the Savannah GA area..hit me up. We have some great shows & cruise ins going on. Thanks!!

Nice, like the wheels too.
What kind of gauges are those?
05-01-2012, 12:15 PM
Thanks! The gauges are autometers. I forgot the name of the series, got them from Summitt. One is a 4 in 1, the other is a speedo they are electric to work with LS's.

Very sanitary install. Turned out great.
Which cam did you put in and do you have any dyno curves?

Beautiful Olds, very clean. What did you useo for the fuel pump?

I can look up the cam card for you if you need it... From memory it was the SS or HO cam for VVT Gen IV's. It has not been on a dyno yet, don't know of one locally.
As for my for my fuel pump, I bought a EFI ready bolt in tank from Rock Auto with a pump already installed... Then I used the corvette filter ~ regulator combo unit off the tank.

Nice neat job.any clearence issues with the trans ? what did you use for a crossmember? any plans on changing those radiator hoses ? I just dont trust them. JOHN

John...Yeah the Trans/exhaust is very very tight. The car sits so low that the exhaust hits goingover the smallest speed bump and I can't raise the exhaust due to the Trans... So I'm carefull over the bumps! I dont want to raise the car as i love the stance. The crossmember had to be custom made by a buddy of mine, couldnt get the factory one to work no matter what I tried. I just finished the car and haven't put too many miles on it yet so not sure if the radiator hoses are here to stay or not. I'm with you, don't trust them 100% but my contact at summit swears by them, they look clean, ez to bend and I have no clue what regular hoses would work on the car if I went to the local parts store...so for now they stay!

what did you use for motor mounts? did you have to do much to get it all to fit?

i miss my 67 olds cutlass

I used the hooker LS swap mounts....and their headers. Worked like a charm. Only real fight I had was a little on the Trans tunnel... But my BFH fixed that right up. Smooth sailing from there.
