    So a slight change in direction with the rear end of this. I bought some Calvert and Caltracs gear to go with the diff. But found that it needs a little more effort to get it all to fit.

    I decided to purchase a full setup from the leaf spring kings. The Gazzard Brothers.

    Hopefully get it next week.

    Should be good as though Gazzard boys know how to get leaf spung cars to hook up well.

    Few set backs with the gazzard rear end stuff. But hopefully get it all soon.

     

    In the mean time I’ve purchased

    2x Borg Warner 63mm S300SXE billet wheel turbos

    2x Tial BOVs

    Aeromotive belt drive fuel pump

    Aeromotive fuel regulator to suit

    Those babies should give it a nice kick in the ass. Good turbos.

    Yep. Biggest twin setup I can run in the class.

    Comparable to the Garrett gtx35. Newer and slightly bigger rear wheel though.

    Not really much to see from the pics. Parts have finally started to come in. So the cage and rear end can now be started.

    At a guess. Around the 1500hp mark.

    Cava. I am painting it. Some of the doors under the paint was really bad. It had been repaired previously. But it literally had about 20mm of bog in some spots. I want to do the rust repair myself. Something I can do to keep myself busy. Otherwise I’ll be playing battlefield 1 too much haha.

     

    With my old ls1, I put up to 18 psi through it. Never had a problem. I’m looking at up to 25 psi with this build. I currently have arp head studs in it. But I’m going to upgrade them to either the top tier arp studs or go to a bigger diameter stud.

     

    I’ll also be doing something similar to  o-ringing the block. I think a copper o-ring will be used.

     

    Ive been told that 1300hp day in day out on methanol would be achievable. But we’all see.

     

    I need to run 8.50s to be competitive. That’s around 160mph for the weight I’m hoping to get the car to.

     

    Hopefully that can be done with less power. Then turn it up to 25psi to try for something closer to a 7.

    New chromoly diff housing. Same as this but with a street full floater kit. Also haven’t got the braces on yet.

    Also order my shifter. A long wait for it. But definitely worth it. Same as the one pictured

    Wow this will be epic, so you are keeping the colour? The joys of owning a car thats had every guy have a bad attempt at fixing the body. 20 mm of bog aint bad compared to some i have seen.

    Colour will be changed. I have a colour combo in mind. Just need to work some photoshop magic first to see if it’ll work.

     

    Hopefully buying a welder next week to start some repairs on the doors.

     

    If anyone has any opinions on a good mig welder for home use. Let me know.

    Ive been looking at the unimig viper 182.

    This thing is gonna be a weapon man, that shifter looks mint too, in my opinion you can’t go wrong with most of the unimig gear I’ve used a few of their mig and tig welders and they’ve all been good machines and pretty easy to use, I’d recommend their tigs over anything from cig, another decent brand for the money is bossweld
