    My Story!!!!

    Well I started to tear my car apart in January. I have to work full time and go to school full time as well, needless to say not much time to work on it. My goal for the winter was to do a head and cam swap along with a procharger. Parts I ended up installing are listed below. In the past I have built several small blocks and a 496 stroker for my 69 Chevelle.

    The car was easy to tear apart, I think the most difficult task for me was getting the radiator out and the harmonic balancer bolt out. For some reason the motor wouldn't lock up in ANY gear 1st,2nd,3rd,4th,5th,6th....nothing. Ended up runing a chain threw the balancer and around the sway bar, worked like a charm. As far as getting the oil pump off, dropping the pan a couple inches helped me tremendously. Before I pulled the cam out I made sure I had it dot to dot, after I installed the cam the sprocket and timing chain went on first try dot to dot.

    Throwing the motor back together was a breeze, just took my time and double checked everything. For most of the head and cam install I was using LS1howto.com, that write up is very good. The only beef I had with it was the instructions on installing the rockers, they state throw them on and torque them down. For me I followed the GM pattern, find TDC torque valves/rockers blah blah blah turn 360 torque valves/rockers blah blah. Procharger install was a breeze, took some time to run the intercooler piping. I used the trap door method for the fuel pump, had second thoughts about it but glad I did in the long run.

    Went to start the car today and it fired right up, idle is still a little sketchy. As of now I still have open headers but it will be at the exhaust shop ASAP for my custom true duals over the axle. After I get that done it's on the trailer to the dyno to get a good tune. I will have a vid up as soon as possible, for now enjoy the pics.

    Hoping between 550-620RWHP depending on the dyno. I heard mustang chassis dyno's are usually a little lower than others.
