This one Im taking over on someone's project that they started and just dont have the time to get it done.  Its a 71 Chevelle. So far the suspension has been updated with modern components and the brakes have been replaced with much larger pieces. 18" wheels and tires really change the attitude of the car too. It will be getting a LS based 6.0 engine with mostly stock components excent the cam, head studs, and Edelbrock intake. A 4L80E will be the transmission of choice. Of course no job is complete without a turbocharger! Building a basic truck manifold kit with stainless piping and a Turbonetics 7675 billet wheel.


Trunk full of parts. 


Lots of parts to be installed! The build list:


6.0LS with LilJohn cam, head studs, and Edelbrock ProFlo intake

4L80E  with a Yank PY3400 converter and Transgo HD-2 kit

OGG truck manifold turbo kit in stainless with Turbonetics 7675 billet wheel

Vintage Air

Complete new dash with Dakota Digital gauges

Impala gas tank and sender

Twin Deutchworks fuel pumps

PSI engine harness

Flowmaster exhuast and mufflers tbd


I started off with unloading and cleaning everything up. Stripped down the front end and removed the engine and transmission to get the firewall cleaned up and painted. 


Welded up and ready for a skim coat of filler. 



Painted firewall, engine and transmission installed, -10 turbo oil return welded on the pan.  

 This project came to a halt when the owner took it to get painted and that snowballed into more money than he wanted to spend so it now has a new owner who may or may not keep the turbo Ls combo...No more updates on this one.
