Exhaust is done and looks mostly stock from behind.

Threw it on the dyno yesterday just to see what it would put down. I was expecting somewhere between 370 and 380 to the tires because it's a fairly small cam made to have no problems with roller emissions tests and the car has cats and mufflers. It's essentially just a small cammed header LS1, looks like I was pretty close to my goal.

Looks great Nic! Some great work man. Do you happen to have a sound clip with the full exhaust? What kind of mufflers did you wind up using? What year vette was the motor pulled from?

3inch Magnaflows... I had this setup built on my fox coupe, i had no cats tho. Sounded great on mine - probably really smooth now that it has cats.

Nice numbers BTW.

Don't have any new clips yet. The motor was from an 03 vette that some dude had wrapped in plastic still because he wanted to sell it later as a collectible and then one day he said screw it and did a 427. This 03 vette motor literally had 130 miles on it.

Default Awesome!

Awesome build. I am sure I will have more questions for you in the not to distant future .

I do have one immediate question. Why did you decide to go with a modular motor tubular k-member versus a sbc swap tubular k-member?

I am anxious to hear what kind of times it puts down a the track!

Thanks!

I went with the modular k-member because it was pretty easy to do and that's all people were doing back when I started this project. Modifying the motor mounts was pretty easy and it literally dropped right in place.

In your opinion, do you think a stock Modular V8 k-member would work? What about the stock LSx manifolds? Other than extra hp, is there a reason you abandoned that idea?

Thanks in advance for answering my questions!

They were just standard 4.6L mustang poly mounts that I cut and extended the one side.

The stock LS1 manifolds, no. Mustang headers go back before they go down and the "truck" ls manifolds that I tried still stuck out too much and hit the frame. I didn't bother even trying a stock modular K-member because I wanted the better clearance, etc of the aftermarket one. Turns out the aftermarket one that I had didn't really get any better clearance because it was so beefy though.
