Sold off the 454 and started looking for some kind of LS engine, didnt really know anything about them back then.



These pics are backdated, trying to catch up a little bit.
Here are the front section of the frame painted black and firewall is about to get some paint also!

Found an LS engine, itīs a LS7X Warhawk engine.
Used engine with one wrecked head, piston and rod-damage in one cylinder so some work required but the price was nice.

Katech built engine that sat in a twinturbo z06 with poor tuning from the guys that ran it here in sweden.

Needed a new head, new rods and pistons.
The Callies crank was okay

No work on my Chevelle for two weeks now.
Time to go racing with this mean machine



25.1E chrome moly chassis with full carbonfiber 65 chevelle body!



New engine this past winter.
CN Billet engine block with AJPE billet heads.
526cui and topped off with a PSI D-screw blower pumping out around 3500hp.
Not my car, but a friend of mine and Im one of the mechanics.
Learn more about the car and our team at www.abmracing.com

The sticker on the injector translates something like this: Expensive as f*ck but paid for

Maybe this should be moved to projects?
Any admin who can help me?
That's not really that bad, as long as that is all of it. I bought my 66 from a body shop owner that had his guys working on it during dead time (for years). It was in primer and looked pretty straight, although I could see evidence of patches on the back sides of panels. By the time I got through removing stuff I didn't like, this is what it looked like. LOL Now it has nice, new, straight AMD panels over a blasted and epoxy painted skeleton. Looks better, but it was a lot of work. Good luck with your project.

The block was bored to 4.155 so with my 4.00" crank it was a 434 cui.
New Wiseco pistons and Callies rods was balanced together with the crank.
And bottom was assembled.



Modified a Holey pan for crank clearance and put an AN-bung for oil return from the supercharger.

I agree the firewall looks great in body. Good choice. Keep it up!
