    LS Swap

    Started messing with the coilovers today. Trying to figure out where the sleeve support is going to get mounted on the fronts. Definitely will need at least 7" springs up front and the rears seam like they should work great as is. Won't know until they are on the car though.

    Can you really hate on an LS though?! Thank you!

    LS Swap

    Visually identical haha! I get what you mean though. I think I am going to try it with the stock length bilsteins I have right now just because they are fresh and I can always cut the strut tubes later. I might just stab the engine in and see if it clears the steering and the steering box, who knows maybe I'll get lucky!

    Got our buddies fc20 in this last weekend and got the red car back to my place. Excited to start tearing into this thin!

    LS Swap

    My attempt at coilovers is basically identical to what IE and ground control offer. Just sourced a bunch of it for a little cheaper. Same spring rates too! Still trying to figure out if I want to do mk1 inserts and cut my strut tubes down. I will definitely look into those Lexan wind shields. Found them on Facebook. Any idea what racks get used? I've only stumbled on a couple write ups for the conversion and found most use a z3 rack.

    LS Swap

    Figured I'd share my project since parts are starting to pile up and I'll start to get time to work on it. The heart of the car is going to be a built lq4 5.3 that originally powered a suburban. Trans is not yet decided, but will either be a muncie 4 speed or a Nv3500 out of a 90s 2wd s10. All managed by Holley EFI Terminator. Fueled by a cell in the trunk and in line fuel pump. Full e30 rear subframe swap for wider stance, strong diff, and disk brakes. Attempting to make my own coil overs with sleeves. If all fails I'll get a proper set up. Autometer gauges going into a custom dash. Cage, comfortable bucket seats, harness but still streetable is the goal. The car was in the works of an s2000 swap but drivetrain was sold to another member on the forum and I picked the roller up. It is defintely a blank canvas to work with, so that gives me a lot to do! Things I would appreciate some help with sourcing/ideas: -Aftermarket Pedal Assembly installs -Budget Front Big Brake setups -Rack and Pinion conversions -Biggest radiator you've stuffed in the nose of the car?? -Anyone ever do Lexan glass? -Door insert dimensions?

    Intro and Some Parts

    Figured I'd share my project since parts are starting to pile up and I'll start to get time to work on it. The heart of the car is going to be a built lq4 5.3 that originally powered a suburban.

Autometer gauges going into a custom dash. We were in the works of an s2000 swap but drivetrain was sold to another member on the forum and I picked the shell up. The car is in the process of pulling the drivetrain and then getting it back to my place.
