Puts me at $3650(not bad) for major engine parts, i still need a few things like a MAF, water pump and the like but those wont take long
Here is a picture of my parts shelves before assembly
Here are the engine brackets done is a flat/satin black(first pics shows gloss black however)
Pics are out of order but whatever, be glad i actually updated this thread
For those wondering thats a close ratio road race gforce with straight cut gears and dog rings, .90 final. I purchased it for $800 with a broken main shaft but came with another 26t hardened main shaft and is currently being put together by my buddy.
I'm loving the all black theme on that 347! Sounds like you got a good deal on the gforce trans, pretty neat.
Thought you was installing an LS-juan, or LS-tree
BTW, I love the black finish on that engine Looks way better than the polished/chrome look of the late 90's early 00's
That car is gonna be a good time
Nate- I HATE chrome, polished, really anything shiney, so I did all the powdercoating myself cause im cheap and poor. Its a really different black wrinkle finish, actually and imperfect cracked look instead of a regular texture kind of finish
Jeff- IIRC its pretty much your exact same engine minus a few things. Shooting for about 400-450rwhp. Still need to have my 1 7/8" headers made.
Actually the goal was an ls7 with a valve change, porting and a cam. But i needed to sell this engine, it was a cousin of a friend and he wanted $4500 for it with 20k, full car harness and computer. Sucks cause that would have been a 600rwhp beast at least.
Oh well, this engine looks good, lets hope it runs decent.
I completely agree... I hate me some chrome as well. What is that powdercoating material called? It looks awesome.
I tried a couple different ones but its from a company called caswell plating, after shipping and what not its kinda expensive
What type of oven do you have?
Kenmore elite i think? Gotta make a new one, some powder dropped onto the heating elements and it went up in flames.
Christ... I moved to a new house recently with a huge garage and have considered getting some powdercoating chit.
Anyways, cool pics Crane can't wait to see the finished product.
Thanks, me too, we'll see what becomes in the next year. Already have our room booked for vegas again so all funds are going towards that. This thing can keep sitting.
There pretty different, different stroke, bore, rod length, cylinder head, intake, cam... lol
Id guess that motor makes from 380 to 410 at the tire. How high you plan on spinning it to?
Thats a sweet looking motor, powdercoat looks great
For some reason i thought it was pretty similar other then the heads. Been gone a while, oh well. Engine should spin to 7000. The heads have been gone through extensively so im hoping for a minimum of 400 and onward. My builder said when he was done with them they were around a 205 runner for how much he worked the runners and pockets. 160# springs installed, Ti hardware blah blah. Ed was positive it would make at least 410 but wanted to be stingy with his estimations. We'll see, whatever it makes will be plenty for the road course.
So here are the things I need to get it running
1 7/8 Headers
Thickest radiator possible
Electric water pump
Electric fan of some sort
80mm throttle body
These are just the bare minimum to get the car running, I still need a pair of sprint 5's and an mm roll bar before I push the car any
So if y'all have any of that shoot me a PM about it.
These were requested, these heads had to be extensivly saved, dont buy heads unless you have them in your hands to look over. These are the monster 1262R gaskets, 200cc according to my builder now, im just glad he saved them.
Fantastic job for $300
My word, look at those ports.
