    G body #4. Yikes!

    Almost done with engineering school and wanted to play around on the HAAS CNC mill and maybe design and sell a blower manifold for LS engines. Project didn't go through but I had most of the parts so I am continuing. Bought a 6.0 for $200 this spring, GT500 blower, ect. Was destined for a C4 vette.

    2+2 came up for sale and was perfect for the goal of a road race kinda car. Probably go t56 eventually.

    Car was from the original family. Spend most of its life in Texas and came to MN in the mid 90's. Blew up in 97 and got a 350 swapped in that never ran right. Mice got in the interior in the meantime and the owner kinda moved on.

    Body is great minus a dent in the drivers fender and passenger quarter. No real rust from what I can see. Still need to do an inventory on the interior to see whats gone. Needs work but I can definitely do something with it.

    And the engine that is going in.

    Cleaned it up today and did an inventory of what I have. Center console is complete but broken.

    Need weatherstrip, carpet, rear seat, new passenger seat foam and fabric, passenger sun visor, ect.

    Medium sized dent in the rear quarter. I hope its just popped in and it just needs to be pushed out.

    Yeah, I decided if it was a similar priced and condition 442, H/O, or T type I would have snatched it up. No it doesn't have the prestige but why not this one. Plus it was local and in pretty nice shape. Better condition than my cutlass when I bought it.

    Christmas break I'm renting a rug doctor and cleaning the dust off the interior and putting it back together best I can.

    Very cool, figured I'd stop in. I'll be following along for sure.

    Thought I would update it with a bit of the fab work ive been doing in the last few months to get a 07ish GT500 blower onto an LS.

    Needed an 8 rib drive for the blower pulley. Nice thing is the truck balancer has a 4 rib for the AC. Just add 4 more ribs!

    Intake is a mid 2000's magnacharger manifold that I bought with some cracks. I welded them up and its good to go!

    Made a "filthy ferret" copy of a dirty dingo idler relocation bracket

    And took the stock Gt500 pulley, bored it out, and drilled the bolt pattern for the modular pulley hub I bought for a GTP m90 (fun fact, all eaton blowers have the same drive shaft diameter!)

    Also ordered the 8 rib idlers from rockauto to adapt over for the blower belt. I'm done with the semester next thursday so I hope to drop the motor in a few weeks!

    Didn't notice the blower in the first post. Nice work repairing the intake and adapting the blower and pulleys. Will the blower fit under the stock hood?

    I'm also finally finishing engineering school and planning to finally put my Monte back together this spring.
