Talking

Got the Hi Ram all painted up. Gotta redo the lettering--I got a lil ahead of myself and didn't wait til I got some fine tipped paint brushes. Used a Q tip. But the little "areas" can be fixed later... Came out cool..

Used VHT etching primer and Satin Black "Roll Bar and Chassis Paint"



Mocked up the MSD coils..



Painted up the LS3 water pump and dropped the 12 point polished ARP bolts in. I got a set for the intake, but they were super long. Matched up a valve cover bolt to the studs that came with the intake and they were the same size. Picked up another set- I'll be 2 bolts short and will use the studs proved with the intake on the back holes and paint em black...

ARP 12 points for a little detail on the intake. I have an idea for the top hat. I may get some longer bolts so they poke thru the top a touch. Then find some small pointy screw on spikes and polish em up. Just to see how it looks..




2010 LS3 water pump AC Delco p/n 251734-- This pump has "truck spacing"

317 heads should be here today hopefully before I head in to work. Also waiting for the BRP oil pickup girdle and LS Brackets bracket to show up. Looking at getting an MTI Racing billet belt tensioner. Pretty solid looking piece. I'll keep the updates coming....Thanks for checking back...

Cool

317's came in from the machine shop and looked great! Cleaned, multi angle valve job and a slight mill. The exterior was a lil rough but they have been painted up with some VHT high temp black... I used my Holley efi intake to hold em up while painting..

VHT high temp primer. cleaned with some acetone and degreaser (rustolium)





LQ4 got the same treatment. It had a nice paint on it, but the finish wouldnt match so a cleaned it all up and primered/prepped for the VHT treatment...








VHT High temp engine paint.."bite coat" and then a few light coats.





Re sprayed the GMPP custom valve covers to match the block and Holley Hi Ram. I had -10an bungs welded in and baffled as well as some nutserts so my Katech coil pack holders would work with the GMPP covers





All dressed in black. This is just a mock up. I still need to swap the 317's over, muscle car oil pan and other painted stuff. I left the 862 heads on so I could paint the block and keep the mating surfaces clean. It also gives me a nice mock up of it all black...





Quick youtube vid



Waiting on the go fast goodies to arrive, ARP head stud kit, and a few other parts so I can button it all up..

Thanks for checking back

Have you thought about putting a head plate on the passenger side head?

I have a single one that could be used on either side. It's cut like this but just raw aluminum. I don't have an LS1 anymore and don't know if I will in the future.

Yeah that's nice! I have a mti racing tensioner coming that bolts into the head as well as the water pump. Gotta wait and see how it works before ordering the plate..

Back on it!! Moving slowly but surely on the LQ4 build. Parts are coming in and Ive been mocking it up. Just ordered the Holley 12-1600-2 fuel pump and that will finish off the fuel distribution. All I need are the -10an and -8an black fuel line. My club bro Jerry blessed me with a clean heavy gauge bracket to mount the Holley pump. Heres a few pics of the progress...

Internals looked great. For now this will be a stock bottom end turbo build BUT with ARP bolts(rods, head studs)





Muscle Car oil pan goodies



BRP oil pickup girdle



Before..



After



ARP oil pan bolts





ICT oil block off plate. Dual feed to supply oil to the turbos.



[

LS Brackets "Turbo" bracket setup. Im running the Hooker manifolds. This setup is trimmed so you can clear the bottom area. The alt is dropped 3/4" and the power steering pump is moved up so it clears the frame.. This setup works with my 2010 ls 3 water pump (truck spacing.

http://lsbrackets.com/category/turbo-brackets/



Mocked it up..



Got my MTI racing manual tensioner. They were cool and send a plastic pulley out so i could mock it up-free of charge. Also ordered a Metco pulley. Waiting on that to show up



New 145 amp alt chowed up and I painted it all up and mocked it up with tape. The billet power steering wheel is from Dirty Dingo. It will be coated black when the Metco wheel shows up. Just painted the brackets to see how it all looks. I may also paint the insters red..





Ill post new pics as the updates come. Thanks for checking back!!

It has a synthetic rubber core. Using this line for fuel in -10an and -8an. I also have a dual canister catch can that uses -12an and will run the same Fragola line for that. I also have some Fragola -4an "push to loc" line I want to use to supply oil out to the turbo's. I have like 25' of it with fittings from another project I bailed on. If I can use it for to feed the turbo's, that's would be great! I cut a 10" section and pressed the fittings on for my steam vent return line. That line doesn't quite match the -8,-10 and -12an line tho. I'll have to cover it with some heat shrink. It has a "cottony" look to it. Here's the fuel line...

http://www.motionraceworks.com/store..._the_foot.html

Ordered this clean catch can setup from "Race catch can"



All the fuel parts are in finally. Well... I still need the tank sending unit and an fittings to swap the sending unit over to an line. Holley, Magnafuel and Fragola parts. My club bro Jerry made me a CLEAN bracket to mount the fuel pump.. Ill take it to work and sand blast it and drill the holes out to mount it. Imma line it with some cork and use some rubber "feet" to help dampen the pump a little. Also, it should aid in keeping the air flowing under it for cooling...





Holley 12-1600-2



Holley, Fragola and Magnafuel pre (75 micron filters) and Post 25 micron filers from Motion raceworks..





The Metco Billet Tensioner Pulley came in. Mounted it up to the MTIRacing Belt Tensioner. Im gonna have it coated or may just take it apart and sand blast/VHT paint it...





The ICT Billet oil pan dual feed plate came in. Mocked it up with the -4an fittings. Need to press on the ends on the Fragola "push to lock line" still...



The LilJons Motorsports Holley throttle cable bracket looks clean on the Hi ram. I painted it. Should have just grabbed the black one. All good still..



And it holds the CLEAN black braided Lokar Midnight Series cable. Thus matches the Fragola hose PERFECTLY!!



Just a few more parts left and then I can button it all up. Up next will be the Hooker manifolds and weld on V band ends. Getting to natural iron finish so the ends can be welded on, then sending em out for coating.

Thanks for checking back!!!
80zUP!!!

I've had trouble with the braided rubber, might have been synth, deteriorating on me. Next up is a braided with plastic core. Hoping it lasts.

So far it has only been from the tank to the hardline that I have had a problem with. Not the hardline to the motor. Looking into it most people say it is because of everything added to the gas. But I still don't get why the one section has not been affected, well yet anyway.

Hell yeah! This build is turning into a monster! I've been debating an LS setup. Might be in my future.

Thanks bro!! Trying to get on your level one day. This has been a really fun learning experience!!

Got the Fuel delivery about 98% finished for the project. Just got the sending/fuel level unit. I was gonna jut get a regular unit but this was a few more bucks from http://www.robbmcperformance.com/pro...88_gmsend.html Ill just use it as a return line since I have the lower sump welded in the new tank.





I ordered it with the -8an fittings installed already. He even send a fitting to cap off the line not needed. I'll use a rubber hose and cut off piece of line on the vent side..







10 feet of -8 and -10 fragola line. Ill order another 5' of each. Should have just went 15' on each size. I rather have more and not need it than to need more and have to use a coupler. Oh well. Coupler it is--if needed...



Few more -8 and -10 fittings, and a jegs 10 micron post filter. I have the Magnafuel 74 pre, 25 post also..





The Jegs -10, 10 micron post filter attaches to the magnafuel -10 to -8 "Y". The clean fuel is then routed up to the -8 Holley fuel rails. All of this is probably overkit. I drew it all up to get a better understanding of it. Decided to give it a try...



First fuel flow diagram I drew out. Ive since added part numbers and the other filter in..





I get asked a lot why i went with this setup and not an "in tank" setup.. I got the brand new tank, sump and already welded for #75!! Couldnt pass it up. My SS will have thw grand national i tank and setup for that project...

This setup from http://www.racecatchcan.com/ looks clean!! Imma have it powder coated with clear and add the smoke effect like on my suspension parts. It has -12an bungs weled in..



Ill mount it to the firewall using a small piece of angle iron cut, drilled and welded to tje firewall. The -12an fragola line will run off the valve covers and up under the ac delete cowl down into the can. "should" be clean..





I was gonna tie the steam vent return line in with the upper radiator hose using a Jegs brand billet unition with -4an fittings, but decided to drill and tap the new ls3 water pump instead. Both ways look clean, but i thought running the line to the pump looked a lil cleaner.. Stepped the drill bit up and then used a tap..Didnt have the tools at home and took it to work. My boss helped out a lot!! He was like uhhh this is a new pump are you sure!!?? I said lets do it!

First hole



Second



1/4" tap



Mocked it up to check the fit. Im using Fragola "push Loc" line. Man this stuff is hard as hell to work with. Im having a helluva time pressing the -4an fittings into it. Used a blow dryer and then tried to boil the line to make the lining soft. WHEW!!



Used a little ARP thread sealer to lubricate the threads and ran it down to check for clearance. My Magnafuel PCU (pressure control unit) line out to the fuel rail runs over the steam line. Needed to see if there was an issue...



Looks good. Need to press it on just a touch more and then I'll cover the small end with some black shrink wrap...



I got the correct size (-4an) fittings for the turbo oil feed line. Decided to get em in a 45 to angle em off the ICT Billet block...



All the brackets and pullies from Metco and Dirty Dingo have been blacked out with VHT satin black. I also did the 145 amp ALT.







I'll be heading out to AZ soon(next Month) to take the frame in for coating. Got tired of waiting to get it notched and all that. I want the car here in cali by May so I said forget it. I can get the frame re notched, boxed and braced in a couple years when the wide 12' wheels come along. Thanks for checking back!!!
