Had a meeting with our foreman on Tuesday the 13th. Kinda got a timeline dialed in and it looks as if move in date was suppose to be around the 20th of july as long as everything went smooth. Well it didn't. Sheetrocker is fixing a bunch of shit b4 doing the rock work because our first framer was a flake and fucked all kinds if shit up that nobody caught. So sheet rock won't be done until the 30th. A week later. So we won't be moving in until the end of July.

Anyways onto our work.....


Sister and her boyfriend showed up Saturday June 17th, I was having 50 yards of 3/4" basalt crushed rock delivered. Along with a cat 257 skid steer and a 5 ton roller. We knocked it all about in about 8 hours. My sister is a fucking pump when it comes to running machinery. She is a union operator by trade. She did this job 100x better then I would have ever done.

The truck injectors dont fit in the ls1 intake manifold. I tried  :'(

I cant believe you got that manifold and tb for 50 bucks man that's a hell of a steal.

The truck manifold actually makes a little bit more power if it will fit.

I cant believe how well that motor fits in that beast. That car is going to be a blast.

I havent tried the injector yet, but saw someone on the sloppy page do it. I guess theres one way to find out. This is easier to work on then the old red block :noel:

glad someone is motivated! lol.  actually i have been stressing on other items of life.
 
 
i worked on my DD truck though. 3 broken exhaust bolts (into head, flanges where mint) making some noise. what a whore to do, and in the truck. one came out easy as it was fresh break, 2 on drivers side (front most, rear most) where a bitch, just like the nova one... replaced gaskets with OEM GM, bolts with some Dorman's.
oh and i put lowering shackles on the rear a week or 2 ago. "level kit" as they call it. no more wicked rake.

I broke three taking the stock headers off mine too. Those bastards are brittle as fuck. I replaced them with stainless  hex bolts and anti seized the fuck out of them. I think I broke the exact same bolts too.
