Re:MY LSX DODGE PROJECT 2 Years, 4 Months ago  
Just a boring update...

Got the Yogis In Tank Module Installed



Ran all the fuel lines and placed filter.



Got my transmission dipstick mounted



My good buddy Frank re-working and extending the OEM harness.



Worked on my dash... still need some trimming to get it to fit flush, but im liking how it looks...



Ordered my Starter



I also modified my gas pedal brackets to allow the throttle body to open fully. Now going to work on making my spark plug wires. Finally moving along a bit...

Just an update... she was running:



but now she's not because I went and did this... new lower compression heads- 9:4:1 compression. The ones currently on the car are 11:1:1 compression (3 sets in less than a year lol) I need the lower compression for this: Borg Warner 76mm turbo

Thats gunna be a beast! What did you do buy a motor with thebfactory wire harness off a bone yard? I would like to do a ls swap as well if i can do it without busting the bank. Holley makes a harness with a brain but damn if it wont cost about $3k for those items plus the motor

You're doing a fantastic job on that thing!!!! IMO It sounds great just like it is in the video and I personally wouldn't change a thing. Although that turbo would be temping.

Want some roller rockers for that small block. I have a set here I'll never use! Didn't see any on that LS, so I thought I'd make the offer.

Re:MY LSX DODGE PROJECT 2 Years ago  
Thanks guys, appreciate the kind words... this may be put on the back burner for a bit now though... My daily driver just started blowing white smoke and misfiring... not sure if its injectors, egr cooler, or headgaskets (but no matter which, they are all expensive fixes) It's a 6.4 powerstroke so head gaskets and injectors are cab off jobs. Im hoping its the egr cooler since I have the EGR delete kit I purchased a while back and never installed... that would just take about 6-8 hours of work.

Questcap. I have an upgraded trunion, chromolypushrods, dual springs and ls7 lifters I plan to throw on there... how much for the roller rockers? I probably can't pick them up anytime soon (please see above- lol) but maybe I can try to start to put some cash aside...

Re:MY LSX DODGE PROJECT 1 Year, 8 Months ago  
Well, I should have been done with the motor on this thing already, but money goes so much faster than it comes! LOL.. Also... I spent a bunch on apes and cables for the bike.

Anyway, I knew I wouldn't finish the turbo setup by Hot August Nights, so I set it up just to run it as is for now:
