great build. some details on the syclone?
The Syclone is still AWD with a DLS built Bowtie V6.
We pulled the LS2 last week and Kurt Urban is going to be going through it putting on a killer set of heads and some improvements to the block for this year. Time to turn up the boost some more and get a PTC converter in there!!!
I am sure with Mr. Urban in the mix we will see some big improvements.
Mike, the man has forgot more about LS stuff than most will ever know. Thanks for the hookup!!!
Was the motor hurt or is he just updating it?
PS What is he doing with heads that where on it?
going that same road . that a nice setup .when im ready you'll be getting a PM Ted:biggrin:..that would be soon..
Just chimming In.
No prob. You got a great engine guy down the street from you. I'd love to see what Bobby can put together.
From what I was told there was something going on in the bottom end, sounded like a rod bearing. I know he is interested in selling the heads last I talked to him. Not sure what he wants for them. Dan spent over 3k into the L92 heads.
Thanx ted, picking up motor next week. I will pm you my phone so you could help me with the set up and parts imfo. PS bobby is happy that im going that route..:biggrin:
Can someone built me another set of those headers for me and maybe Miguel too since he going down the same road .
Going to talk to Ted about the headers .I'll let you know what happens...
Thanks Miguel, I still have those Glasuric clear here waiting for you. LOL
E85 conversion underway
The engine is all buttoned back up and the the car is on the rollers ready for some E85 tuning.
P.S. the header guy is not interested in duplicating these headers without a car.
Do you guys mind sharing which car the accessories came from? Would like the power steering mounted high like that. Did you guys make custom power steering hoses?
It is a Corvette front accessory drive. The power steering lines need to be custom made.
Glad to see you making the switch to LS power. You won't be disappointed..
Ok on those SBF headers, they cut the flanges off but did they cut into the tubes a little bit as well? It looks like it, plus that would make sense doing so since the Ford tube is shaped like a rectangle and the LS1 flanges are for the round shaped LS1 exhaust port.
Also, what type of piping is used for the cold air pressure pipes? I assume aluminum piping and you guys are TIG welding it, right?
This build thread and pics are a lot of help.
The header tubes were cut and rounded off. The factory Ford end was cut off and reworked. The cold side piping is 3" AL and Tigged.
