sbc to ls1 fc rx7
some might remember when i started this build back in dec 09, well here it all is copied over and after this post the next one will be up to date with new pics!

87 Turbo II v8 build
Ok guys some of you may have saw me post a couple of times on here and there, im still very new to this, but am learning very fast...

I already have a 11.4-1 integra gsr, but thats just not fast enough and its my dd so i decided to build a REAL FAST car with RWD and all

So i bought this TII blue shell for 150, it still has the TII hood, rear end, and brakes, all it needs now is a swap and some interior love.

So far i have got a nitrous (blue nos) kit, ordered my granny mounts and ill be using a sbc and probably a t5 trans, i really want a t56 but that will have to come after i graduate college in may.

The car will be a weekend toy with some autocross, drag, and some naughty street action to show some old buddies whats up.

here are some pics of the car as it sits now previous owners have had the inside color matched and the engine bay is in primer










as it sits now previous owners have had the inside color matched and the engine bay is in primer

here is the setup i'll be putting in it,

small block 355 with a street voodoo cam with edlebrock intake manifold and 650 carb. with a 700r transmission with overdrive for the 4.10 gears in the TII rear

i also still have a wet kit (which is for sale) if i feel the need to hammer more :bigun2:

and more to come

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCDKT9RRQGg

so far i have the grannys mount kit, TII rear end yolk, and the sway bar spacers, nos wet kit with 2 10lb bottles

I have paid majority of the labor to my homeboy (professional) who is doing it.
I got the price today for the paint to paint the engine bay (now primer) and the front bumper (now black) to match the car. (might need someone to spray it for me). Once the motor is in and set I will get the driveshaft done to match the tII rear end

Im going to run 17x7 +20 dodge magnum steelies (NEW DANGO) to start with 225/45/17 front and 235/45/17 in the rear, then eventually ill run 255's in the rear (new wheels).

still need keys for the car

looking at pricing to get keys made to my locks or buying all the keys and locks used off ebay for 65 bux...

also still need an interior for the car, dont even have seats

so far with all that i only have about 2k in this so im rockin out with the cheapness of this build so far!!
*

12-25-09
UPDATE

got some new wheels and tires to put on the car they are 17x7 +20 offset, only paid 130 bucks for the wheels and the tires mounted and balanced and i'm using 225/45/17 up front and 235/45/17 in the rear, the wheels are from a dodge charger and im thinking the +20 offset will really help them sit flush with the fenders, now i need to start thinking about what setup im going to use and how much im going to have to camber them in to sit flush, and if ill have to roll the fenders also...

but actually i need to slow down on suspension and get the motor in the car and running and driving! lol

I'll get pics up on my next post

thanks, and MERRY CHRISTMAS

here are some pics


12-27-09
we actually moved the car to my mechanics house too, who is doing the swap for me, so now he has the car, sbc 350, and the mounts, once the engine is in the car, the driveshaft will be cut to fit, as i kept it outta the regal bc it was already on the trans
:yay:







1-19-10

update!

last week i went to my employers automotive paint store (sherwin williams) and dropped 170 for all the stuff needed to wrap the garage, car and get the engine bay painted and the front bumper to match the car.

We are also starting to clean up the motor and paint it black.

I have a NOS kit with two 10 lb bottles now but am really rethinking the nitrous and looking into easy turbo setups, i just dont wanna drop big money with a carb setup and if i go Fuel injection im starting with a whole different engine (like ls1 or the 6.0 lq9 outta the trucks)

1-27-09

ok for anyone who cares...

some bad news, while checking the casting numbers i found out that i actually have a 305 not a sbc 350, and its a flat tappet engine... so even with the heads, cam, carb etc it will prob still not make 250...

also we pulled the valve covers off and found alot of sludge

so now im debating on selling it all and getting a 5.3 lq4 truck engine and going the fuel injection way or just selling the 305 and buying a used "real" 350

chime in and give me some input

2-12-10

UPDATE!

i bought a 5.3 outta 00 silverado this weekend with only 80k on it, complete from oil pan to intake, with pcm and wiring harness

the ls1 intake manifold should be here this week...

i have got the keys made and finally transferred this heap into my name and i ended up getting the car, title, keys and it transferred for 400 after all the bs was said and done so im pretty happy with that!

im now trying to sell my 305/700r setup so i can get the rest of the stuff i still need

i have sent my grannys cradle back to get the ls1 piece...

still just waiting on the weather to clear so we can paint the front bumper and the engine bay to match the color of the car (fucking snow storms)

im looking into getting a ls6 z06 cam and ls6 springs in the engine b4 we put it in the car too (30 or so hp increase!)

i think thats all for now!

not me

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJNVidkNM7I


this is kinda what im shooting for, but not a full out drag car just yet!

http://wiki.ls1tech.com/forums/force...-sec-pass.html

thanks for all the comments, i just sold my old 305/700r swap today for $1000, so now ive got the rest of the money to get what i need to finish the car!!!!!!!

Yaaaaaaaaaa whoooooooooo

i paid 1100 for the car, pulled all the good stuff out and sold the car for 400 so i had 700 in the good stuff, but all i sold him was the engine/trans, so i still got some good stuff left over, gauges, radiator, etc...

now i just gotta pick up a 4l60e and the rest of the stuff

also just got an aluminum c4 driveshaft off ebay for 38 bucks shipped!

ordered some new stuff

ls1 intake manifold (thanks digitalsolo)

ls6 injectors, and new tps from wally5.0

fd/ls1 harness and pcm tuned for ls1 with i/h/e (will be tuned later on)
http://www.v8rx7forum.com/showthread...ed-harness-ecu

*still looking for the z06/ls6 cam and springs needed to help the cam

* still need the ls1 fuel rails

*Probably a t56 but maybe a 4l60e or 4l80e


ALL THIS WAS FROM MY LAST BUILD THREAD THAT GOT CLOSED LAST YEAR AND I COULD NEVER GET IT BROUGHT BACK UP!

THEN I LOST MY WHOLE BUILD THREAD ON V8RX7FORUM WHEN IT SHUT DOWN!!!!

SO HERE IT IS A YEAR LATER AND STILL CHUGGIN ALONG ON THE BUILD THREAD!

no that was all just from this thread that got closed... https://502streetscene.net/forum/showthread.php?t=158300

but as of now the swap is almost done and might start next week, but i wanted to back track a little bit to catch people up!

so after i sold the sbc 305 and bought my lm7 5.3 from the Silverado i decided to search for a transmission...

I really wanted a t56 but i couldnt afford the 1200-1500 bill for the used trans so i ended up going with a t5.

i got some great info from this thread
http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/manual...77-5-3-t5.html

Here is the parts list i used to make it work...
LS series T5 installation parts list:

Bellhousing casting number 3899621
Stock LS1 or flwheel, pressure plate and clutch
Pilot bearing GM part #12557583
Howe racing hydraulic throwout bearing #82870
http://www.howeracing.com/p-7754-imp...ck-clutch.aspx
and the lines
http://www.howeracing.com/p-7755-hyd...-hardware.aspx.
i got a 7/8th wilwood master from hinson already adapted for the fc

on to the pics...







this oil pan is awesome and already has a race baffle in it, but wont work in my car and is for sale a GMPP part!

as you can see why it wouldnt work, bc it hit on the grannys subframe so i had to find a stock ls1 camaro pan...

luckily junkyard dog was parting out this ls1 camaro and sold me all the front accessories, oil pan, full ac and ps system!

so that really helped me with alot of little stuff i still needed!
https://502streetscene.net/forum/showthread.php?t=179920







had to cut out some for the radiator mounting





also had to cut out the stock shifter hole for the t5


I also had to reorder the grannys trans mount a few times, so now i have a 80s camaro t5 mount, t56 (for later) and the old t5 mount im using.

so i think my t5 is from one of the older cars, but it is a world class t5!

Looks great man! Those 5.3 blocks are no joke with the power they can handle. The T5 is going to go boom though
