Default Another 69 Camaro build here...

Glad to see other builds like mine in current process!

I've been working on my '69 Camaro 5.3L turbo build for a while now myself. Its funny to see others running into the same issues that I am with keeping the factory hood latch and running the FMIC. Here is a pic of the current state of my build. I'm in the process of pulling the motor back out so I can send to paint in a little over a week! Keep the build pics coming, loving what I'm seeing.

Looks real good! It's always interesting and sometimes very helpful to see other versions of the a build! What are some of the specs of your build???

2005 5.3L block, cleaned up at the machine shop
New bearings and rings gapped for boost.
ARP rod bolts and head studs.
LS9 headgaskets
Z06 cam and springs
LS1 heads and intake with 80mm TB
New Garret .81 A/R Turbo

Junkyard 4L80/converter

I'm basically using a bunch of stuff that I had laying around from other builds and putting it together into my 69 that I picked up a little over a year ago and a pile of rust (literally)! Only factory parts left on 69 body are the A-pillars, roof and inner rear structure. The rest has been replaced.
DSE mini tubs with TCI Torque arm rear suspension.
Currently sitting on C6 wheels 18"/19" combo.

Here is the original body:

Looks great so far. What are your plans for the heater hose outlets on the waterpump? I built my hotside similar to yours and cut the nipples off the waterpump. I was planning on tapping threads and just plugging them. I know a lot of people say you need to loop them but its just not an option due to space/heat

I just removed the nipples, tapped the holes and put a pipe plug in one and a temp sender for the cooling fans in the other hole. I did the same thing on the 5.3 in my coupe and it has had no effect on the cooling ability of the system at all. There really isn't and reason to loop them and its a lot cleaner look with out them there.

Got a good start on the fuel system today. had to do some major modifications to the fuel rails to get them your accepted the 8orb fittings. They were supposed to come threaded fit 8orb but they had some odd ball thread pitch with a copper gasket. Ended up drilling and tapping them to accept 8 orb. Was kinda a pain but it's done now. Just crossing my fingers that they don't leak!!! Lol!!

Better get that regulator off of the firewall, it is illegal.
If you have someone close that can TIG, have them pull the orings from the fittings and weld them directly to the fuel rails. It will eliminate any chance of leaks and a headache from one.

Thanks for the info!! I'll just make a bracket for it off the back of the head. I can tig weld them at work but I think they will seal up.

Thanks! The motor mounts are energy suspension sbc engine mounts and sone universal lsx to sbc motor plates that I got off of eBay for like $30. The intercooler is a treadstone 1000hp.

Here's the link to the intercooler.http://www.treadstoneperformance.com...cooler++1000HP

Just hate to see ya get turned away for not being legal.

For future reference fuel lines & regulators must be a minimum of 6" from the firewall.

I appreciate it!! Ive drag raced for almost 20 years but I always had my regulator mounted to the front motor plate just because it was the easiest place to put it. Lol! Never knew the rule but it sure does make sense now that I think about it.
