Silver 04 ls status
Tuesday, May 12, 2009 2:42 AM
Well I'm starting to get off my ass and get the parts slowly out into the garage and into the car. This past weekend I started making a gauge pod for the boost and oil pressure gauges I'm putting in once i install my GMPP supercharger kit. I'm also going to powdercoat the valve cover and fuel rail and upper mount black. On sunday I welded the spacers on the factory sliders and have the passenger side ready to bolt to my tenzo R seat and install it. any who here are some quick pics of the car and the projects......more to come.

I got the Seats installed on last Friday.



Had to run to the junk yard for some misc parts and looked for an overflow bottle for my GMPP supercharger kit
heat exchanger setup I'm going to install I found this on what looked like an 02-05 Windstar sport if anyone else wants to pick one up.
the tabs for mounting this are all flat on one side, and thats why I picked it up. I will be mounting it in the dr side wheel well.



And a little more progress on the cluster. I['[m slowly building up layers of primer and block sanding in between to get rid of the texture
before I paint it to match the car.

I was but I've decided I missing having a RWD car since I sold my Caprice coupe last year, and my blazer is a little top heavy. I'm looking to pick up my 95 Dakota sport since it's emmisions exempt in IL and swapping the enging/trans since the current owner hydrolocked the motor by racing through puddles.....My plan involes my welder and either a 5.3 vortec/4l60E or an LS1/4L60E and your turbo if it is not sold by the time I get the truck running again. On the plus side though I know the truck received caltracs, a detroit locker and 4.11 gears while it was out of my possesion.

Check out the suspension and brake forum, I posted pics so people would be able to look it up later down the road. Granted the way i removed it most people won't be able to do unless they have access to a welder...but it worked for me.

I picked up a set of GAGTACA's and some new ball joints and put them on the car today but this is the only pic I have of install. Tomarrow will be either the blower or the Racetronix pump.....

Well it's nice to see that car is getting modded. If I were to have been the papa of it...it woulda stayed stock and been a daily...who the hell am I kidding, it would have been modded to some degree.

I told myself that it was going to be stock and I was going to finish my ovh build with having dam near every part needed minus charge piping, bigger injectors and pistons....but I parted it all out and this is the DD and once my dakota is back into my ownership, It's getting some chevy drivetrain love.


JK- none at all but I have acess to a welder and other tools so it makes things alot easier to make stuff. I used the factory sliders/brackets though.

Paul- The rims are Nippon F2 racing wheels in 16x7.5

Mythod- Very nice man
