That is beautimus! I'm installing a 5.3 LS truck motor in a '37 Chevrolet and I think I'm getting brave enough to try to relocate things and try to "pretty" it up a bit. This is some great inspiration!

Do you think the heat from the headers might cause issues with the coil packs long term?

Thanks,
Brandon

Thanks guys,

The big concern I see coming up is heat from the headers... I really dont see this being an issue, most of the coils are mounted in front of the "down pipes", Ill take some pictures at more of an angle to show that there is actually several inches of clearance.

Seeing as this area should see more airflow, I dont think I will have any issues, if/when I choose to market this I will gladly hookup several thermocouples and "map" the engine bay temp to see if this area is that much hotter.

Thanks for the support guys, I spent a lot of time designing/making these brackets, it feels good to get such a positive response.

ZWA!

I may have missed it, but can these be run with the a/c hardware on the passenger side?

I have my engine out of the car right now forging it, and I've been re-wrapping the wiring harnesses, so now is the time if I were to do something like this since I have the space and the wiring open.

Looks sweet man, I was wondering the same thing about the heat issue. Probably will be very hot in that area with the block and headers there.

Default Your Alternator

I really like how you mounted your alternator. I have a truck LM7 that I'm dropping into my 30 model A build with Twin Turbos.

Where did you find that alternator bracket? Did you build it? Do you think it would work with a truck alternator? Thanks again.

Here's a pic of the current status of the build http://dl.dropbox.com/u/249320/ratrod/sideShot.JPG

Punisher, very nice project. I'm doing something similar with a 2011 Camaro. how did you get the goldish color on your header? Did you just get the inside coated?

That's the color that Stainless Steel headers turn after a couple of heat cycles.


OP - if you are worried about the heat generated by the headers, get them JET-Hot Coated. I have JET-Hot Coated ARH Headers, not only do they look great, the coating performance is amazing. I have never experienced warm floor boards, my entire engine department is cooler than with the original manifolds and I can actually touch the headers after 15 mins after I shut down the car. You wouldn't have to worry about heat soak or any issues if you get the coating.

I took some pics of the headers and install on my Fquick page linked in my sig.

So how is it when have to change plug wires? Looks like harder to get to the coil end and coils themselves. looks pretty good.
