    Yeah I watch his vids. I believe that one was a Gen3 rotating assembly. Not nearly as strong as the gen4. Thankfully my 2005 Gen3 has gen4 rods factory.

    Great build thread !!!

    One of the coolest to date.

    It never ceases to amaze me what folks do to these cars. Nice read.

    When you change the intake to the SS Trailblazer one, are you going to have clearance to get the stock one back on?

    I didn't catch it but, did you put the stock tips back on?

    Clearance for what with the intake?


    When I redo the exhaust. I'm gonna run a single tailpipe to the Rr. I gutted the stock tip (resonator), so I'll run that out. But hang the drivers side as a dummy tip for appearance lol.

    Nice

    Yes clearance for a stock hood for the ultimate stock sleeper look.

    Looking good! BTW, you are only about 4psi away from blowing off the HVAC vacuum line. I consider that a good thing.

    P.S. So far super glue seems to hold quite well at least up to 26#s.

    All the vacumn lines are zip tied tight. And everything vacumn oriented on the dash side has a check valve in the line preventing boost from hitting the eatc etc.

    Put in a few hrs today. Stripped the interior, running battery cables and audio stuff etc. Mounting a platform (just hanging loose in pics) for my amps, plan on putting some circuit breakers, fuse panel, battery charging posts, and a battery disconnect on it as well with all wires hidden behind. Also building a trunk organizer platform on the bottom, hide the battery in the bottom of it.

    It looks vertical, but it's not. It's on a angle.

    I also received my new adjustable fuel pressure regulator, just waiting for my injectors to come back in to reassemble that.

    I found a 2gb flash drive under the carpet in the car. It's loaded with about every type of music imaginable. Shows it was last loaded with music in 2011.





    Whats the circuit looking patch thing glued to the passenger floorboard under the carpet?

    So much yet to do.


    I did hear that my injectors made it safely to Hawaii and should be on the return Monday. That exciting. Hopefully get the intake back together so I can get the new rail and fuel pressure regulator installed.

    Looking at shifters. Trying to find something that'll play nice with the console and my 4l80. So hard not being able to just test fit stuff w/o buying.

    Today's project. Drove to lane automotive (1.5 hrs one way) to put hands on the B&m and tci shifters. Didn't know which I wanted so wanted to feel them out..... Well they are absolutely identical. I couldn't find a difference in any way between the two. Pretty happy with the turn out aside from the screw heads in the panel. But couldn't come up with a way to make the indicator bezel tight to it w/o doing it. Thankfully I had spare center console parts to practice with.

    Old shifter didn't line up with gear pattern (Ford VS Chevy) and had no lockout from park to first so any bump of the shifter and it moved easily. I hit neutral at the track on accident and bounced it over 7k and 16 psi at 120mph.

    I was bummed I didn't get a mullet in the box or a foot shaped gas pedal.

    I would of got an outlaw shifter or Diablo style but since I do drive it on the street the reverse lockout lever seemed it would get pretty old pretty fast. And I wasn't sure how clean of a install I could make with that style.

    Someone made an aluminum bezel that was engraved back in the day. Find one and it should cover the screws
    IIRC it was FBM
