We need more of a descripti … on. Yep, with traction, this puppy ought to nudge the 9s. My guess is that this engine would mate up to the 4L80E but if it doesn't, just use the tranny from the donor car. We just wanted to make a change with using a front-wheel-drive car. This is 520 hp, 495 lb-feet of torque, and 350 pounds -- 5 pounds less than a Northstar.
I work at a Chevy dealership. A simple 4-inch aluminum elbow pokes through the hood skin to exhale spent fumes. However, the W-body platform has been proven in the past. Brandon says the resulting four-bolt system clamps everything together just fine. After that it is simply plugging in new iss and vss values to get the ratios correct. The 90-93 4th gen and 94-97 5th gen share some parts especially suspension and have similar engine bays, but I don't think that the 98+ share much.
I'll get pictures of the next Impala I have on the hoist and get some measurements and pictures. Today, the pushback against the front-drive Monte just proves that everything is relative if you live long enough. If I'm going to go take all the original stuff out of the car anyhow, might as well go for broke. Plus, I was getting 30 mpg and toasting my ass with the heated leather seats. The strut outer body is threaded, so increasing or decreasing the ride height with twist collars is independent of the wheel-load setting. On the second transmission, we were able to get it to work.
Being nearly identical, it too has the distinctive odd-sided hexagonal shape. Anyhow, I'm in Afghanistan now as a contract mechanic, and this retro fit would fit into my budget and skillset. This way, all stock gauges work, including the gas gauge, turn-signal indicators, speedometer, and even the heated power seats. If an adaptor plate is needed, the assembly might get too wide. You might be able to get away using the flywheel off the donor vehicle. From a drag racing standpoint, they certainly have their advantages. Replace the front sway bars with a smaller diameter version from a 80's car.
Its doubtful an manufacturer would make it so they couldn't be bolts to the same tranny, or else an engine upgrade would require a dif tranny. The entire cold side of the turbo plumbing was fabricated using 3-inch aluminum tubing and a Summit Racing 3. Only slight trimming of front fender lips was required to achieve a rub-free turning radius with big drag slicks. On this left-hand side of the block centerline, the transmission housing boss has to be drilled to access an existing threaded hole in the block. Furches custom fabricated the turbo kit using a Bullseye turbo and a Summit Racing intercooler. Once that block is fitted to the car, any of those engines will work, including new vette engines. Good question on whether or not the 5.
Shift solenoid state gets reversed. Since I have the throttle body on the passenger side it opens up a lot of options for a front mount intercooler. For a big coupe, it was fun and I would have another if the opportunity presented itself. Seems most tables you mentioned are in out tunes as well. We upgraded the valve springs and pushrods with components. Use your search engine,type in torque specs 3. The back-space measurements are 7.
To accept 15×10-inch front rims, the strut body was trimmed, some 10. After that it is simply plugging in new iss and vss values to get the ratios correct. So it is physically the same size and has much larger displacement. Not just bell housing, but flywheel to torque converter also. So I'm sure by the time I actually get around to coming back home, this idea will have passed. An Aeromotive regulator monitors fuel pressure. This solid-aluminum prototype may go into production if demand warrants it.
To accept 15×10-inch front rims, the strut body was trimmed, some 10. Replace the front sway bars with a smaller diameter version from a 80's car. Brandon had some early hassles tuning the idle speed after installing the hot camshaft, but help from Matt Happel of Sloppy Mechanics saved the day. My guess is that this engine would mate up to the 4L80E but if it doesn't, just use the tranny from the donor car. Shift solenoid state gets reversed. Donor engines or complete Gen 7 project vehicles are easily found. If it turns into an issue then new controls arms will have to be built to move the ball joint forward the difference but I don't see any issues at this stage.
