Wife helped me install the 4L80e transmission and G-Force cross member.

Wheels and tires are on.

Dakota digital gauge cluster came in and interface. Finally got headliner clips since several old ones broke. New front brakes, master cylinder and hoses arrived today for this weekend.

Wife is working saturday so I have the day to go work on it.

Ordered a transmission cooler too.

I have A.D.D. on what section of the car to work on.

Well... some progress forward and a few steps back.

Noticed yesterday morning that the passenger side of the transmission was not as flush as the driver's. Attempted to tighten it down slowly by hand and split the bell housing. So out came the transmission and off to get repaired. The guide pin also came out with the transmission, so that is where my problem is. I need 2 new guide pins for the engine block.

On the bright side, I test fitted my ebay "speed tech" conversion headers and made sure the starter fits and all the spark plugs will go in easily with the headers in. The long tube headers only required cutting off a small ear section on the passenger is bell housing for the flywheel cover, fit great otherwise. Plenty of room to change spark plugs and the starter is easily accessible too. I am very pleased with them and their fitment.

Painted my calipers silver. Going to finish the front brakes today. Got new wheel bearings, pads, rotors, calipers and hoses. Started draining the old brake fluid so I can install new DOT5 fluid. Need to run rear axle lines before I can do the fluid flush though.

Thumbs up

That is a bummer to break the trans ear. Is that repairable? But you really have done a lot. Thanks for all the pic's even if it shows a boo boo. That stuff happens. Is the torque converter all the way in?

Yeah the torque converter was all the way in. I think what happened was that the guide pin was rusty/corroded and the trans hole had some corrosion and that was enough it was not allowing it to seal and slide all the way in. The guide pin came out with the transmission when I separated them... So I took 2 guide pins out of a spare junk 5.7L, cleaned them up and installed them in the motor.

Quick update:

Trans is repaired and back in. Headers, spark plugs, trans cross member are all in.

Need to get a 28 spline yoke and find a way to measure for a driveshaft.

Front and rear brakes are done, calipers, pads, rotors and hoses. Still have to install the master cylinder and line lock.

Having to jump back to a couple other projects to make some money.

Installed the new headliner clips. Will need to find a way to secure the headliner so its tight.

Well I got some more progress done.

Got my buddies to help me with getting the hood on. Finally have a good idea of the whole picture of stance and everything with the hood and wheels on. Click image for larger version

Got my other 98 z28 project car done and onto its new owner. I now have a spare T56 and a 6.0L with CNC ported heads and cam. Main bearing in the motor is bad and squealing. Why someone put a LS1 intake on it from a corvette without egr I do not know. Maybe they thought it was an LS6?

Also put on my ignition coils. I need to find some ignition wires or boots that will work for the LS wires. I have a set but they do not fit factory wires. Click image for larger version

Hired a guy to finish the headliner. I am just going to have a professional finish it so it looks good.

Still no 4L80e yoke yet, so no driveshaft measurements.

I also have to finish the brake master cylinder, power steering lines to the gear box, run brake lines on the rear end, install the new dash pad and reinstall the lower dash panels, cruise control switch, make up the engine harness & cruise control harness, run fuel line and evap line. both door windows and panels, windows, install the front and rear glass, exhaust system and I am sure a few more things. I can do this, probably not by the end of this summer though.

LS1 intake without EGR? No such thing. All LS1 intakes have EGR. When GM deleted the EGR they used LS6 intakes. So ALL 01-02 LS1 f-body's have the LS6 intake from the factory.

Car is coming along great and L@@King awesome !!!

The intake number is 12556333 and does not have the flat bottom. Says it is from an early corvette 98-99.

It's been to damn hot to work. I am exhausted after being in the shop for 10 hours a day without A/C. So after work, I don't want to do much. Since my last update I went and got a 4L80e yoke out of a pick 'n pull, got a 477 u-joint and put it into a ls1 aluminum driveshaft to see if it would fit the car. Needless to say, it fits, barely with the car in the air. With it in the air, the yoke is hanging out by 3.5". That driveshaft is 41" long. So should I get a driveshaft made that is 43" long? I do not know yet how much it is going to slide in with the vehicle on the ground level, but I don't think that will be 3" worth...

Anyone else have any input on this?

This... although the best thing to do would be to get the car sitting at ride height on jack stands and measure center of yoke to center of yoke. Take that measurement to a driveshaft shop and they'll make you exactly what you need.

Excellent progress. I haven't been to CZ in a while so I had some catching up to do. Great work man, look forward to seeing it driving.

Long time ago

Well I just realized it has been a very long time since I posted any progress but it has also been awhile since I have had time to do much progress. My wife can not live with my neighbors anymore so we have had to do some home doll-up and painting and are searching for a new house. She actually would like a tiny/small house and is okay with me having a giant garage.

I spent some time parting out a Volvo S60R for a friend to make a couple bucks and finally went on my vacation of 10 days in Ireland which only helped putting off working on the 70.

I have posted my 02 Formula with 23k original miles for sale for 15g. No real serious interest yet though. Hoping to use the money towards a new house and to finish this car.

The headliner was done professionally.

I did get a few things ordered and in process. The driveshaft has been made and is in place. I Ordered an upper radiator support, dash pad clips, chrome trans pan with a drain plug (drain plug is the real reason for it), some exhaust reducers, trans cooler and power steering lines. I also custom ordered a PSI conversion harness, but I was told it will be a bit. Hopefully get it this week or next.

Well... I now have to spend 6grand this week on a new roof to make a house deal this week. So hopefully spend some time getting the interior done or working on the wiring that still needs to be done.

Update:

Ran into an issue with my 4L80e, the rear speed sensor was broken, then the bold holding it in broke and is so badly corroded into the transmission I need to drill it out and tap. I got so frustrated I ordered a new monster transmission for 550hp with a 2300 to 2500 stall converter that should be here in a couple weeks. I threw it up for sale for $600 or I will just keep it for a rebuilding less.

I have made up a radiator fan bracket and need to install it. The lower hose I pieced together with a homemade coupler. I just need to get some heater hose and heater hose connectors to mate it to the heater core.

The brakes are all done besides setting the proportioning valve which has to happen after/while driving. My wife actually came and helped me bleed the brakes to get that finished.

My friend and I got the psi Conversion harness started and fed through the firewall. Almost all of the harness is hooked up besides the transmission part. We are just trying to find a spot to mount the PCM and the fuse box under the dash. So we started to assemble the dash more in hopes of trying to find a spot.

I ordered and got a new horseshoe shifter and cable assembly from shiftworks. I installed that to as far as I could.

The fuel lines are installed. I used nylon fuel line. I mounted the corvette fuel filter next to an evap block above the rear differential. I ran the lines up the drivers side next to the brake lines and using many of the brake line hold down spots. I wrapped them in wire loom to help protect them.

What are people doing for the evap purge system in their swaps? Not much I see going on for it.

I am going to order the dynatech exhaust, I like the sound of it for what I have heard and it is a different tone than the constant flowmaster and borla that I have had for so long.

My wife has commented how the seats are not as "comfortable and plush". Maybe a newer set from a G6 or Grand prix would fit in on the old tracks? That is another problem though for another day.
