|mikhail2400||Don't let the little things keep you down. You have done an amazing amount of work on this rig. It will all come together, I got faith in your stubbornness!!!|
|11-29-2014 06:51 PM|
I'll give ya' $500 as it sits!
Seriously, you've put a lot of blood sweat and tears into this build. Is it running yet? I had high hopes when you were around 2K in lol.

|jherrington||Yep. School has really taken a toll on me and I've lost a lot of interest in the project right now just from the stress. Eventually we will get there!|

In Louisiana there's a 2010 5.3 high output with 6l80e with 50k for $3k in louisiana.
Someone pick that up. It's on craigslist.

Evap and fuel system is up next!
LSU let back in today so work on the jeep will probably slow more.

|tomba||definately NOT talking to yourself...I've been watching this since the beginning to figure out if I could do it too or should I just drop the extra coin to buy everything prefab.|
|08-15-2014 02:42 PM|
A good bit.. I'm not too worried about cost though. Just want to finish it.
The stock trans lines won't work with the LS3 headders.
Or, maybe they will, but they will require bending the lines. Because they will be mighty close to the exhaust.

|Mini-Monster||I have read this and wow. This has made me want to try this engine swap in my jeep. Keep up the good work. How much do you have into this project now?|
|08-10-2014 08:41 PM|
Oh, got the fan mounted. I used some angle aluminum and some self tapping screws.
I'm actually pretty content with how it looks.

|mikhail2400||Just sat down and read all 22 pages of this thread. Must say bud you got hellacious determination. Hope it all starts to falling in place a little smoother than other parts have. Really hoping the motor work you did was spot on. Good Luck man!!|

Hey look it fits!
|08-08-2014 12:09 PM|
|jherrington||Fan should be here today!|
|08-04-2014 06:54 PM|
|jherrington||ordered the novak spal fan. FTW|
|08-04-2014 03:09 PM|
Just kidding. With the Novak CAI, the thunderbird fan AND the stock fan won't fit.
Back to the drawing board.
|08-03-2014 09:55 PM|
|jherrington||okay, i cut it up enough to barely make it fit.. i realized the grill actually sits about 39 inches out from the firewall as opposed to the 37 that i was working with|
|08-03-2014 08:49 PM|
|jherrington||the fan is too thick... the stock one will fit, but i have no shroud to go on it.. suggestions?|
|08-02-2014 11:14 PM|
|jherrington||Got the drive train moved forward a to the most forward setting on the motor mounts to get a little firewall clearance.. Today was pretty productive.|
