Hood and Shroud off

Waterpump off and tanks out of the way

Radiator out but condensor stays in

Pulling the Crank hub with a gear puller. If you look close I did not pull the steering rack and wiggle it out of the way. I feel it is easier and fast to just lower the cradle down. Just pop the steering shaft loose, remove the upper strut nut, and pop the upper A arm ball joints loose and lower the whole cradle as far down as you need to clear the pully. You have to replace the TTY cradle nuts though.

Here is another angle.

Pully off.

Timing cover came off so I could Lock tight the cam bolts.

The crank is now pinned.

The front of the motor all back together.

The cradle is back up and the waterpump is back on.

Same thing.

The air dam is now mounted to the cross bar of the radiator cradle. The instructions say bend to optimal angle. WTF is optimal angle???? It drags on everything.

And now 3 seconds later its back together. I am just that good.


But No seriously more pictures come need to down load off of the other camera.

Yes I need to repaint my tanks.


MSD Boost-a-pump all hooked up in the back behind the driver aft inner fender.

Chevy was nice enough to install a handy dandy tool tray right into the front of the car.

Thanks for the pics, looking forward to seeing it in person. Nice move on dropping the cradle.

So VA Speed shot a video for you, you didn't stay and watch the dyno run?

Being a woman I have to ask: You have a kitchen in your garage?

If you talk to Ed while you're there ask if they charge the full dyno price just to put my car on there and see if it blows up with the nitrous on it.
