87 Iroc Supercharged BHP 357 SINGLE PLANE w/ megasquirt & complete repaint

Well, as many know I bought the 1987 blur LSR style Iroc on here back in July. It wasn't an expected buy, but at the time I felt I was getting such a good deal that I sold off parts from my yellow 86 build and concentrated on this car. Some of the pictures are really bad as they are BB pictures in the dark, BUT I wanted to take you along with me on a ride through the car so far. It's come a long way in a short amount of time and I'm doing everything I can to keep up the pace even though we are buying a house next month. Plans are for it to be on the road by the end of next month.

Although this thread is mainly about the engine/computer, paint, etc it has TONS of great parts on it. The brakes and suspension are awesome. The cage and chute really ad to the look and function. It also has a full fire suppression system in case things get ugly... Well, enough of that here is it's history...

Dusty and I ended up there that night to look the car over. The car was in a small garage, but we looked it over pretty well and were blown away by the attention to detail on some of the things on this car! We struck a deal and the next day Adam P and I trailered down the BHP trailer and loaded it up. Here are a couple crappy BB shots of that night....





Loaded up in the trailer to it's new home...



It had a little coolant smell, but no big deal we figured... He stated he thought it had a slight issue on the passenger side head gasket. Darren threw together an impromptu photo shoot the next day and a local school.







Quick video from the day after I got it...

Well, on 9/20/10 the yellow Iroc left for it's new home on the OTHER side of the Colorado rocky's. It was bittersweet to say the least, but I knew it was time



First thing I started on was pulling all of the stickers off of the car. It was a little too stickercharged for my taste. I got almost all of them off and on the ver last one on the passenger side the "Grand Sport" stripe pulled off some paint on the passenger side. I was upset, but before the end of the week had something worked out with Robbie at Absolute Body to get it touched up along with a few spots here and there soon. With that being said I loaded it up on the trailer and brought it over to bananaman's house(Also my uncle) to tear into the motor and replace some blown head gaskets.

It matches my trailer well




After I got it there I first used an old 4th gen seat to make the Sparco's slide(were mounted solid) and then uninstalled the narrow band O2 sensor and got the wideband AEm wired in and loosely mounted. Moving up to the engine I had one thing on my mind and that was getting those heads off. it was meant to be a simple head gasket(or maybe throw on my AFRs if everything worked) and be done for now. Plans were to upgrade the computer system after the Spring...

Before I got started...



The power adder!!! Vortec YSi with a polycog setup. Have pulley's for up to 25 lbs of boost and with the cogged setup slipping should not be an issue...



Other side... Tial Blowwoff(surge protector), oil catch can, and you can also see the beautiful Moroso valvecovers. Closer to the throttle body you will see the aquamist extra injector setup that after seeing the damage below i decided to ditch along with teh stock computer(INCLUDING STOCK CHIP!) for a MS II setup that is using some of the stock wiring, but a complete Megasquirt ECM and 4 bar map...

Well, got the heads off and was immediately dissapointed for a few reasons

-4.15 head gaskets on a 3.95 bore 305
-both head gaskets blow very badly
-slight cylinder wall damage due to coolant sitting in it for extended periods
-#1 piston had damage to it from a severe lean/detonation condition

Here are some pictures stripping down the block, and pulling the ECM wiring to bring it to a friend in Charlotte to convert it over to megasquirt for me...

Well, after seeing all the things that needed attention in the motor we decided to go ahead and yank it and install a fresh 355 we had waiting to go in the turbo car. A quick cam change and buttoning it up and it would be ready. Pictures on specs on the motor to follow. Now back to the removal of the old 305!

Here bananaman(my uncle), his son, and Mark(roadkill) get the motor out of the car while I stand around and take pictures




ITS FREE!!!



After it was all the way out we could really take an invetory of the parts on the motor and also check all of the damage

Closeup of the piston with a bad mark on it. Also not the etching in the cylinder wall, most likely from coolant sitting in there for extended periods.



Drained the oil(What was left of it)



Really like the external timing belt, but I already have a nice two-piece billet one on the 355. Also note the rattler balancer!




The 305 had some VERY nice splayed for bolt mains on it...



Nice H-pipe setup on the car with "fake cats'", flowmasters and the only bolts you have to remove to get it off are the collecter bolts. The rest is hung from the car with high quality rubber exhaust mounts. Very tight system!



Not shown are the dual aftermarket fans, huge Be Cool radiator, and Spearco intercooler that can only be removed if the front bumper is also removed!

After the engine was out we figured a few other things should be taken care of as well...

New plans included

-355 with AFR heads
-Stock ECM gone and replaced with a MS II system with 4 bar map
-aquamist FIC system thrown in the trash(well for sale)
-Vortech super FMU and 36 lb injectors gone and replaced with 8 80 lb ones run by the MS setup
-Boost retard box removed
-Aeromotive Fuel pressure regulator added with CF gauge
-Update the fuel lines and fix a few parts on the custom fuel rails to allow for much more flow

(Updates and pictures on those other things soon!)

Motor specs are a simply SBC build that should handle boost(25 lbs at sometimes!)
-355
-splayed 4 bolt mains
-6" Carillo rods
-AFR 195 cc heads
-CP pistons
-8.5/1 compression
-Custom comp cam
-all TPI parts are gasket matched, but retaining the stock looking TPI(SLP runners, 58mm TB, siamesed runners)



Dusty adjusting the rocker arms while I again stand and take pictures...




Cleaned, painted, and polished WP waiting to go on...


I also removed the harness as stated above so that I could get it to Sam in Charlotte so he could convert it all for me... After that was out along with the motor I got the wheels swapped just because they are worth about $8k before bringing it over to Robbie at Absolute body

19's



chrome ZR1's on and ready to go in for paint!

Next we loaded up the car and bbrought it over to Robbie. He was going to touch up a few spots and just get it presentable for me!

Well, after looking at it a couple minutes we noticed there were some primer still showing in some spots and some parts where the paint was so thin you could see primer under it. Luckily the car was in the right place to get it all repaired and taken care of. We decided to do a full strip down of the car and repaint! We are also getting rid of the four slider hood pins and replacing them with 2 aerocatch hood latches like below. We are going to paint them black to add some contrast to teh hood!





After they started to tear into the car we found out it has 3 coats of paint(including the factory paint job), 5 on the nose, rust under the T-top, ill-fitting hood, bad driver's side door hinges, and bondo on a few places.

It's current state






Check out the fire suppression runing over the passenger side tower! It has two nozzles under the hood!




There was a real rat's nest under the rear bumper!



5 coats on the bumper and some cracks



The spoiler has never been off! It had a large ridge on it whenb it was removed. 3 coats on it!

Looking good!! Are we looking at a 1000hp 355 or should the power be around the same?

Yeah, it had a few defeciencies that we are taking care of and thanks for the compliments!


-The color will be the exact same "Iroc Blue"
- Honestly i'm not sure about the power. There should be an increase with better components, more cubes, AFR's, gasket matched intake, larger cam, but I know the SC can only shove so much air through the TPI. I know if I ever get off of my "TPI high-horse" it would make 1000hp!

Ya know Thadd a little of everything. It won't be much of a drag car with the way it is set up now. It will be more of a street car than anything. I do want to go to the standing mile and Roadcourses some though!

91GT347 might have posted something useful at one time
Have you thought about swapping the stock style TPI for a Accel super ram, or TPIS mini ram ? Im sure that would help you some too. I ran the Super Ram on my 406 in a 85 Iroc. The Mini Ram may be a little better though. I used alot of Lingenfelter stuff. They were always great to deal with for me. A little pricey though. Also how did you fit true dual 3" pipes under there ? Without it being 3" off the ground anyway. lol

Yeah, I have. I just really like the fact it still has TPI! Maybe down the road when money allows I'll upgrade to something(probably a miniram) and make a lot more power. For now, torque all day and a Ysi will be fun on the street.

Its close to the ground, but the main thing is tucking it as close to the body as possible. We didn't do this one, but have done a few on thirdgen's before. Dusty's 85 Iroc has a very similar setup we did on his car.
