Harness is...

    AN power steering hoses and cooler

    Moved on to another short project outside of the van this morning before I went into work at 1 PM. Routed and built the AN lines and installed the 24" derale frame mounted cooler in the power steering return hose. I used a gates fitting for the return hose at the pump and 3/8" gates...

    10.1" Android touch screen head unit and HVAC relocation

    So I just started the next project on the van and it is quite an undertaking. First I removed the OEM radio and cd player. Fitted a 10.1" touch screen Android head unit. I still have to route and mount the backup camera, GPS antenna and the bluetooth hands free microphone. I hooked the GPs and...

    Vortec or LS swap air intake pic request and K&N WARNING!

    So bouncing around ideas since I need a new airbox. Would love to see pictures of what you are running. Cannot for the life of me figure out what to setup or build but did learn something that might be valuable in who not to use for air intake parts and filters! K&N does not sell replacement...

    Giving my ride some much needed attention.

    We have had several bad storms and rainy weather that has included hail. Van has been parked inside my shop since the steering gearbox started leaking. To make changing the box less difficult, I yanked the front clip as I also have some harness cleanup work to do as well as fix a leaking washer...

    Yikes! Compression!

    Thought some of you gearheads would get a kick out of this. After adjusting the rockers again, leaving the plenum off, all the plugs out and getting a good hot battery connected to it, the new 383 is cranking at 220-225 psi in all 8. Going to revisit #5 valve adjustment because it was the only...

    Alternative L31 Marine intake

    I am about to test the other L31 Marine intake I just found and have on the way to me. I currently have the L31 Marine Crossram manifold on my engine. Heavily ported with the plenum opened up to match a 90mm throttle body. I have an Indmar high rise as well. Stated mocking it up and it ran...

    Marine Intake Swap with a Twist

    I picked this up today to replace my standard L31 Marine intake with. Will be sending it to Lloyd Elliot to have it ported to match the Assault Racing heads he did for me. It is missing the fuel rail but I can get that through Michigan Motorz fairly inexpensively. Runs a returnless rail so I...

    Lloyd Elliot Ported Assault Racing 205cc heads

    About a year ago I purchased a set of Assault Racing 205cc heads from Amazon. Put them together with Competition products and Comp Cams parts. 2.02/1.60 valves and double springs. 7/16" studs, guide plates and 1.7 rockers. I got bored and have to do some work on the short block. So I had Lloyd...
