Finally making some progress after a bunch of set backs. Rotating asm. is together.




Took the oil pan off the other motor and found pieces of a piston. This is what I found...




Looks like the rod wanted a divorce fro the piston after 212k miles! Or it could be the fact it turned into a water cooled motor lol. Only need a few more things to get here before I can close everything up and then check the transmission.

Any updates I finally found the owner of my old red truck and went there last weekend and picked it up. Not in nowhere near the condition it was when I sold it. He told me it hasn't run right in 3yrs and after about 8hrs of straightening a lot of rigging out she runs good.

I sold the Powerdyne and bought an intercooled Procharger setup. As of right now I still have to finish the motor. I also picked up some tubular upper control arms, a complete poly bushing kit for the body mounts and suspension, and I need to replace the lower ball joints.

Are you gonna make a project thread for your SS?

Haven't really thought about making a thread just been trying to clean it up and find out what all needs to be fixed. The brake lights quit working so someone ran a wire from the third brake light hanging straight down inside cab then drilled a hole under the back glass and ran the wire to rear and spliced it into the harness to make the lights work. Just a bunch of hacked crap like that to fix before the fun starts. I need a set of 26" et streets or slicks for the factory wheels if you know of any.

Motor is all together!! Now to send the headers off to be coated. I should have done this a long time ago but I didn't want to spend the money and end up ditching the truck. I just started as my sons Tiger Cub den leader so Im incharge of 9 boys....shew and man they have a busy schedule. On top of that we are expecting our 3 child in April so its time to get it in gear again. Gotta get the EGR tube off and then they are headed to AirBorn Coatings, Inc. Also I did fix the rtv on the front. The gasket slide down and caught it.

You're going to be beating yourself up trying to get those injectors to hold up to any HP. A ton of guys have switched over to marine intakes and are running LT1 style injectors w/ fuel rails.

It's an off the shelf crane cam but had some changes to it since it would be supercharged.

Not running stockers when the supercharger goes on. The are 36 or 42# from Wynnjammer. Not trying to break any records with power.

Gotcha, had no idea there were aftermarket replacements for the spider injectors.

What're you doing for the throttle body? I know you don't have to worry as much with forced induction but haven't seen anyone take this approach before. At least pull the pie wedge off the bottom?

Can't wait to see this sucker come together!

Yeah they have the upgraded injectors for the V6 and V8's. I pulled the wedge off right after I got the truck. Only hold up now is getting the trans rebuilt. Trying to sell off these mustang parts to pay for that. I could do it but I don't have any extra time to sit down and do it.

Trans is done and back at the house. I took it for a rebuild with an upgraded sun shell and he suggested a bushing in the input drum to help incase it breaks. What I ended up with was a HP rebuild, Sonax sun shell, z pack, forward and rear 5 pinion planetary, and shift kit. I painted it when I got home.

Any reason you didn't change the servo and just do the shift improver/fix kit and up the pressure a little?

Not trying to hijack your thread but my build has taken a big turn in the build. I did get the interior swapped over to buckets and factory floor shift, but as for the motor looks like I am switching to 2002 Vortec heads harness and computer 2114 intake converted to multiport with pro fogger and a plate kit with stand alone fuel cell.

I didn't list it but he did say he put the vette servo in it. I wasn't expecting him to go this in-depth but he did a bunch


What's different with the 2002 heads?

2000 newer were roller trunion so I am hoping I can get a set of the Buick 1.6 to bolt on without to many issues, the reason I am using 2002 specifically is because I bought an 02 truck for $300 and figured what I needed off it I couldn't beat the price. And they guy that helps me build my transmissions needed the interior because it was charcoal so seemed like a good trade and now I have a free rebuild favor sitting on the shelf, although he rebuilt this trans mission about 10yrs ago and it still shifts perfect even after all the Nitrous I have put through it.

What pistons did you go with or did you use the stock ones?

Think your builder put a reinforcement sleeve on the input drum @ the overrun piston, not a bushing. The sleeve does look like a bushing, but the input drum has no bushings.

https://www.sonnax.com/parts/3600

I did the same thing to this trans as that's what kept letting go on the other builds. Too much line pressure was turning the cast aluminum drum into a friggin balloon and killing it.

Sounds like he's got you set to run as much power as you want through the trans. The 5 pinion planetary is a beefy item. You basically have a 4L70-E now, minus the input shaft.

What stall are you going to run?

*EDIT* This is what happens when the line pressure gets turned up too much and you don't have the reinforcement sleeve.. (left=blown)

Yeah sleeve, bushing, he told me what it was. I'm starting with a stock converter that's rated at 2075 stall. Nothing big right now.

Temporary mounted the supercharger to see what hardware I will need when it goes in the truck. Got to figure out a belt length and spacers to bring it out from the bracket its mounted to.

And the motor /trans is in! Gonna try and get the under side done so that all is left is the under hood stuff. Still have to lift the bed and swap out the fuel pump and drain all the old gas.
