We're back

We’re back

She’s up and running. Still got a few ghosts to chase. Sullivan Motorsports is working over the TH400. Then Steve has to rewire the boost controller. I still have to get the front end aligned and the Corbeau Forza seat will be in next week Other projects include trying to figure out a unique guage system that will really pop and also looking at some sort of pinning and painting for the hood.

Twin Turbo Cold Side

SNL has a very good fabricator who worked to bring the Twin Turbo setup together. The pictures below represent his work on the cold side. I think he did a great job. Understand his restraint was that we wouldn’t move anything in the car to make it all fit. He had to design and fabricate around a lot of the obstacles. Continue reading

Twin Turbo Hotside Exhaust

Downpipes

Downpipes

Trying to shed a little light on theĀ  downpipe hook up to the exhaust. The three inch downpipes come off the turbos and dump to the traditional exit for the headers. There we mate the custom fabricated off road mid pipes which we have then mated to the Kook’s Afterburner 3″ exhaust cat back. Continue reading

Work at SNL nearing completion

SNL is running it right down to the final few things that need done. There are a few oddes and ends that need to be cleaned up and they need to replumb the Co2 System for the Boost Controller. Still hoping to be ready for the cooler weather in the fall to dial the car in. Continue reading

Kellers in Dallas

Late Saturday Afternoon

Late Saturday Afternoon

Keller’s Drive in off Northeast Highway in Dallas is one of the top motorsports cruise scene spots on weekends in North Texas. Any given Saturday night will bring drag cars, street racers, classics, antigues and more than a fair share of Honda Civics. I’ve been going to Keller’s since 1994 and have made some very good friends over the years. Here are some of the rides I have seen over the past 20 years. Continue reading

The car I really wanted?

468 6-71 blown BBC the car I really would rather own

468 6-71 blown BBC the car I really would rather own

In 1964-65 Alan Hicks had the baddest 55 Chevrolet in Knoxville Tennessee. He rebuilt the 327 Hi performance motor in Mr. Kelley’s Auto shop and even let some of us lower class members touch the motor. It was an awesome experience. Larry Bryant lived on the same street as me and had the most beautiful 56 Chevrolet ever built. Continue reading

Harrop 2300 Supercharger

Harrop 2300 Twin Helix Supercharger

Harrop 2300 Twin Helix Supercharger

We obtained the LQ9 FI Shortblock from Texas Speed with the full intention of putting an 88-94 mm Borg Warner Turbocharger on it. Loyd Mead purchased a Harrop 2300 Supercharger kit and put it on his 2004 GTO. It was one of the cleanest installs I had seen and the kit was very well put together. I immediately got interested in the Harrop and we bought a complete kit, New in the Box. Continue reading

GForce1320 Engineering Spool

GForce1320 Engineering Spool and 33 spline stubs for OEM GTO Differential

We went to the GForce1320 Spool once we climbed about 800 rwhp. We were thinking the OEM LSD was probably getting near the end of its useful life. We went from the 3.91 gears in the prespool setup to standard 3.46 gears. Also at the same time we added GForce1320 stubs, hubs, CV shafts, the coil over kit, tubs, and modified lower control arms. The spool was a definite plus for biting on the street, espcially with the M6. Continue reading

GTO OEM Dana

OEM Dana Rear end

OEM Dana Rear End

The DANA OEM rear end in my GTO was a serviceable and reliable unit that held everything I threw at it for 90,000 miles. In fact, I have broken more on the Ford 9″ than I did on the DANA. The first major modification we made to the differential was adding a Harrop cover to it around 15,000 miles. Continue reading
