3" 3 bolt exhaust flanges, who knew they were so hard to get these days......

Then got an air cleaner stud and nut since I am tired of trying to thread a bolt in from the top

Picked up a cut to size 8mm ignition wire set (135degree) and vertical stacked looms from Taylor cable. Went with black on both, going for a simple clean look under the hood. Using the stock GM HEI distributor so these will be plenty up to the task.

The new build to suite 2.5” stainless steel exhaust pipes showed up, decided to build my own system this time around. There are 4 long pipes, left the other two in the shipping carton. Going with the Pypes Turbo Pro welded stainless mufflers, will be ordering them in the near future. They are pretty quiet and no drone at speed which is what I want.

I went to the junkyard to get a knock sensor and harness, valve cover gaskets, 2 water pump bolts and an m90 for a friend. As im walking thru I notice a heavy duty gmc yukon. I Peak around the corner my suspicion was correct. L29 454/4l80 thats been in the yard since 9-28 , begging me to take her home. I mean begging. The front clip was gone. Exhaust cut. Driveshafts, transfer case and crossmember were gone. Basically just pull 2 motor mount bolts and go. For 400 bucks I probably can't lose so I'm going back to get it Tommorow after work. The ? Is should i abandon the ls swap and slam the big block in.

The real gem came in the car aisle. It's a Bonneville dash, so it has the clock and dummy lights.

No cracks in the dash. The bezel is broke down low tho. Tbh I've never really liked the look of that dash in a monte. Dont know why. But it was so nice I couldn't leave it behind. Also got the front fender braces. And a locking gas cap( that I just realized as I'm typing this. I dont have a key for)

Everybody is putting LS's in everything to include Stangs! Yesterday's car show had an AMC Javelin with an LS with the Chevy Big Block adapted Valve Covers painted Chevy Orange, go figure!
Big Block It!
