Re: Big Single TURBO build ...LOADING

If you pull the wiper blades off and remove the plastic cowling, it will make the reinstallation of the engine a lot easier. I would drop the trans into the trans tunnel, drop the engine in and the bolt the trans to the engine. I had to pull the engine & trans as an assembly on my first Caprice due...

Re: Big Single TURBO build ...LOADING

After posting on the Facebook page, I learned my heads wouldn't work. And that meant my intake wouldn't work either. So I picked up this 2012 longblock yesterday for $250! It has a failed dod lifter. 170k miles on it. And it has the 243 heads that I need. Still praying that my cam and lifters surviv...

Re: Big Single TURBO build ...LOADING

Update #4. I bought a LY5 5.3 short block last night. Which is a gen 4 with iron block. So as far as I know I might have the first 5.3 caprice? And I think the 6.0 is still going to be good enough to rebuild. But I haven't pulled anything apart yet. Here's the new 5.3. received_458441551376204.jpeg

Re: Big Single TURBO build ...LOADING

A couple BIG updates. First, I got my paddle shifters in but have hardly had a chance to use them. Install was easy and the instructions were easy. received_351620559069060.jpeg Next update, I ordered 1000cc Snake eater injectors! So I should have some more room to turn boost up received_37085091028...

Re: Big Single TURBO build ...LOADING

I was having trouble with the intercooler piping blowing apart. Even at low boost. I found this cool trick for a makeshift bead roller and it worked great! It was making around 7psi and holding good. It was super rich so I'll up the boost some and see how far I can get! received_2193949017369780.jpe...

Re: Big Single TURBO build ...LOADING

I'm working on making my down pipe a little better today. It was rubbing my fender pretty bad so I but a small bend in it. 20190702_135521.jpg I also heat wrapped it, and then put some high temp gloss black on it. And then I sanded the tip down with a flap disk and put some high temp clear over that...

Re: Big Single TURBO build ...LOADING

Small update. Been trying to get the tune dialed in. The G8 LS7 maf adapter harness I bought was pinned wrong. I re-pinned the stock plug and now its working good! But I was getting choppy maf signals. So I had to add a honeycomb . 20190629_124426.jpg I'm also running out of injector at only 3psi. I...
