Well its time to hustle... the head is back and looking good. All fresh vlaves, new stock springs with 1 shim to raise the seat pressure, seals, guides, exh seats, new freeze plugs, 2 new rocker studs. Ive got it set on the motor and will be bolting everything back together tomorrow. After setting the valves we'll check for compression again and then see if we cant fire her up before the end of the night.

TV cable?
Are you using a 700R4?

Have any pics of your linkage/TV cable for the guys running this type of trans?

Good luck on the start up!

2004R actually. No pictures of that yet, gotta get a bracket for it. Mines pretty simpled since I mounted the 2bbl front go back instead of sideways.

Oh yeah no problem I had this trans hooked up to a holley before, simple issue. I just hooked it up, adjusted it and viola good to go. Put 2000 miles on it and no issues. Its really not as complicated as people make it out to be. The bes thing is to make sure its pulling the cable level. On my V8 w/o the corrector arm for the holley it did shift a bit firm but thats due to just a hair too much line pressure but like I said 200o miles and about 15 drag strip passes.

I set the valves yesterday by adjusting the exhaust when the intake rocks and vice versa. Check good compression on all cylinders, no more 30psi on #1 \:\) I am picking up plugs first thing this morning and then I will try and fire her up.

It runs.... once the exhaust is on ill have to set the valves running cause I don't think they are right but it does run and idles just rough. Im going to get the new valve cover on and run it through a few cycles, top off the tranny fluid, and the coolant. Ive ordered the las bit of pipe for my turbo up-pipe which should mount just ahead of the carb, but well see.

Also ordered a throttle cable bracket and the geometry correction lever for the Holley. Never had one before but figured I might as well.

Yeah need to do something about the 50cc pump and large squirter. Also the new t-stat was sticking and then blowing off a ton of pressure at once so we pulled it for the time being.

I really do need one of those 292 manifold though for this turbo, it would make things so much easier. Just a pain tracking one down.

Here is the up-pipe. The welding we did on there was with the MIG, but were finish welding with the ARC welder and a small rod. The 110V Mig we have just cant heat that pipe enough.

Looking good!!!!
Did you put a flange on for the turbo yet?
Is that an O2 sensor I see?

Did you find a carb bonnet to blow the pressureized air to the carb?
I have been seeing them on Ebay cheap recently.

Not yet, going to finish welding the pipe up tomorrow and then place the flange. Yep thats my Sensor from the LC-1 I installed.

No luck on a bonnet yet, might end up making my own.

Yeah Ive seen those, the first one is made by Specter and you can get for that price from autozone. I think we may try and fab up something ourselves.

Very nice!!!
Is your LC-1 tapped into the #1 exhaust port?
Or is that an EGT sensor, hard to tell.

I am sure you will be burning rubber in no time!
What is the stall on your torque converter?
I'm always a big fan of the 2004R's ,nice gear spacing!!
I see your boost referenced Holly FPR, nice!

The only problem I might see coming will be the passenger sytle engine mounts.(Tall, thick, spongy)
They are going to flex like crazy!!! Engine is going to torque right over!!
You could install some sort of engine tie down.
Or install V-8 mounts like Tom did on his 65 ElCamino. Two cents :-)
For the rest of your exhaust system,what are you planning to run?
3" all the way to the back, straight through muffler?

Its has a Stock Monte Carlo SS converter I think its like 1900-2100 range. And yes that FPR works too lol, I was surprised but will eventually swap it out for a new one.

Id though about doing the v8 mounts eventually. I do have a hold down strap that came off my v8 that will get installed.

I am going to run 3in all the way back to a 3in "Super 40" Flowmaster and a 3in Tailpipe, also plan on installing a cutout at the bottom of the downpipe.

Well I have my throttle and kickdown hooked up. The oil line and oil pressure gauge is installed on the turbo. Left is to install the wastegate and work on a downpipe. Once thats done I will I will begin building a carb hat.

Plans are to have the WG and down pipe done it least by next friday. Id like to take it to our local cruise. Is it safe to drive it without the turbo hooked up to the carb as long as theres a filter on the turbo?

You could easily overspin the turbo & damage it.
I would not do it.
The Super 40,,, is that a straight through flow type muffler?

RevOD,
you can use a muffler, I would just use a straight through type.

It's just w/a turbo,,,,,,if you have back pressure in your exhaust system,,,, your turbo will spool up slow.
Keep your tubing bends to a minimum,,, & use mandrel bends.

Oh yeah I understand that, we plan on putting a cut out at the bottom of the down pipe also so if we do race it we can just uncap it. Maybe ill look into some sort of straight through muffler also, since this will be a street driven car Id want to have some sort of muffler to quiet it down. Possibly a 3in Bullet Type muffler. Any suggestions?

If am not mistaken your super 40 is supposed to have better flow than a straight through glass pack.

Yes im not sure of the exact numbers but they Do flow VERY well. I will most likely use it for now since I have on here and then change if I feel the need. Once again not a race car, just a street car so i can worry about the "itll make more power" later on.

i am not running a muffler on mine. it is loudest at idle. still no louder than the 40 series my bro used to have on a v8. the turbo really quiets it down. i run 3" open clean to the rear of car. comes out behind the tire. tom

The best type of muffler to use is the straight through design w/perferated holes on the inside, louvers do not flow as well.

I run a 3" straight through round type muffler w/louvers,(the muffler shop did not have the other type).This is on my 4.3 V-6.
It sounds good at idle, but it is really loud when I open it up.
Other guys w/Syclones & Typhoons run a straight through (no muffler 3" exhaust sytem) & have gotten too loud exhaust tickets.

Guys w/no mufflers say they like the idle sound ,,, but it "sounds like as$ wide open"

Some race tracks require you to run a muffler w/two or three baffles or have to be below a certain decible level.

Hey I just signed up on this thing on the recommendation from someone on another site, because I'm interested in doing the very same thing your doing, and I believe it is in a Nova as well. Well, I hate to jump in when you have 5 pages of forum notes so I was wondering if I could email you. I don't know if you can send a private message on here, if I can let me know how so.
