im getting excited because i really don't want to resell my standard twins for a fmic setup. you also don't see a big fmic in the front for stealth.

if you or trust can tell me, will the couplings fit the 4.5 just like they fit the 3.5 or is just the thickness that is bigger? may be a stupid question but you never know on the little things

Yes, they will work when switching from 3.5's to 4.5's. I also like the aspect of the stock appearance. I don't think there is much left to squeeze of it though at this weight and combo of parts.

I was so close to getting your car. The problem was I had started a new business about a year ago and it was hard to justify buying your car while dropping $50,000 into the business.

The new car is nice. It has been in the shop for the last couple weeks. I added a 4,000 Vigilante converter,
Ported 92mm Fast intake, 92mm PTM throttle body, Sphon adjustable Tq arm, 30lb SVO injectors, new MSD wires and a few other things.

The car was taken over to the tuners last night. The tuner does street tuning so it might take some time due to rain here over the next 4-5 days.

Details of the car are in my signature & I attached a few pictures below. I was so lucky to be in the right place at the right time. 31,000 miles, showroom condition with a head and cam package, lingenfelter short block BMR suspension just to name a few things, $11,000.

By the way, do you want to build me a short block next spring? LOL.

I hope you get the car out one more time in late October. I can only imagine what your car would run with temps in the 40s.

Good Luck!

Nice buy. The air was probably as good as it will get Tuesday night. But I would like to go back again this year. That Vigilante 4000 is going to be a slippry street converter.

Putting together a nice LQ4 408 right now. It will be a good one, all documented, of course. Callies Racemaster 4340 crank, Callies H-beam rods, Wiseco pistons, ARP studs, TFS 215 heads, 11.5:1, 244/248 cam. Should be a 500 RWHP engine - N20 ready. May sell it as a shortblock only. Look for it in the 4-sale forums soon. Cheaper than the sponsors.

Here is a sneak peak.

pretty cool, i built a sim. engine to yours to swap in my chevelle to replace the 6.0-same ci, cam, heads, except i run a carb with the D1SC-with the 4.25 pulley, i see around 10 lbs under the carb-gonna swap in the stroker in a couple weeks, hoping for a 10.0, been 10.6 with the 6.0
maybe i missed it, what rocker arms did you end up using, i have Comp.
1.75's, was gonna use them on the AFR 225's, gotta ck the p/r lengths so i can order the right ones if diff than stock

Yes, I am pretty happy with it. I thought long and hard about doing an LS2/Procharged (similar to this) in my 66 Chevy II. There just isn't enough engine bay to get it an intercooler/radiator in there properly, so I went with a 555 BBC. Retro's are cool! Wish my old car had a bigger engine bay. Surprised you are doing so well with a 4.25" pulley. Impressive.

As far as rocker arms, I used the Yella Terra Ultra Lights, got a good buy on them from a friend that is a distributor for them. Pretty decent item.

yea, the novas are a little space challenged, most of the guys used a/w intercoolers-at least with the chevelle, i had plenty of room down in front,
doesnt block much of the radiator
that BB should get the nova moving, put about a 400 shot to it, lol

A little, that is an under statement.

I finished the engine this summer and ran it on the dyno to get things close, well as close can be. There are two Steve Johnson Superman E3 annular nozzle foggers. One stage made an additional 330 HP and the other made close to 430 HP with the starting tune ups. It is a 'pump gas' 555 so it isn't ***** out by any means, but it made 802 HP @ 6900 with a nitrous cam and the heavy std. tension rings gapped for nitrous. The engine has all top of the line hardware in it. Both foggers will be used when it is lined out. Should be good for 1350 HP. The plan is an 8.50 street car on radials and pump gas.

Here are some dyno vids from two months ago.

I think it was a good deal and can't wait to see what it drives like.

You said the 4,000 will be a slippery street converter. Can you tell me what you mean by slippery?

Do you think it is over kill? I had a 3,800 in my last car and really liked it. Now I hear that stepping up to the 4,000 is a big step up. How can 200 rpm difference make that much of a difference.

I will keep my eyes open for the shortblock.

Thanks.
