Yes, I did all the work at my shop in Atlanta. Owner lives in Florida.
As for the front diff and rear axle they will get changed (prob when they break LOL) But first thing needed is a trac bar of some sort. That rear u-joints hatin life right now!!
Before the trans was sent off to get modified and the Spec 3+ clutch that I used
Heres where I had to notch the oil pan to clear the front diff. This swap would not have been possible had the truck not had the Fabtech front lift kit. Also had to use a Canton remote filter adaptor.
Modified pump assembly. Bosch 044 and I put in an Autometer 240-33 ohm sending unit to work with the Camaro gauge. Which turned out I had to put a series of diodes and resistor in to get the LS3 ECM to read it properly. Camaros have two senders in the saddle tank. That took quite a bit of testing to make work. But the dash now gives instant mpgs and miles to empty WOHOO!!
Gas pedal mount. This was a task in itself as the e-brake mechanism was all in the way. Had to modify this mount a few times to get the pedal in the right spot.
Headers (before ceramic coating)
Trying to get a good angle of how tight this is in the truck
And this is how tight the front is. I used the stock radiator, made an aluminum plate with two 9" and one 16" fan. Running off LS3 ecm I programmed them to come on in series. Absoutely zero overheating problems. , the big fan cycles between 187 and 181 for about 20 seconds.
Used all 08+ Corvette accessories as they are the tightest to the block and had to put a little bit narrower battery to clear the alternator. Also had to notch the frame on the pass side for the ac compressor and hoses.
Full Dual 3" exhaust into a Magnaflow
x-pipe muffler with turndowns YEEHAW!! Actually it isnt redneck loud, sounds awesome and absolutely no fumes or anything inside the cab.
This is what controls the transfer case, out of an Astrovan
Its basically an on demand AWD and with a switch I can send 6-8 volts to the encoder motor to force it into AWD. Or disconnect the power and the ADD for 2wd operation.
Owner took the truck back to FL today and hopefully get some pics of the finished interior/dash soon.
Also, hes gonna do some sort of hood scoop(s). Why I built the intake that way.
