Building The Ultimate LS BBC!

It's a Big-Block! No Wait...It's an LS? If you remember, a few years back we dabbed a bit into building an LS to look like an old SBC/BBC in our Project Way-Gone '66 Chevelle Wagon. We had so much fun that we decided to go that route again in our '55 Bel Air build, but go a little bit further to see if we could fool more people. There's no doubt the LS engine is the new SBC … [Read more...]

Holley LS Fest West 2021!

Holley LS Fest West 2021 If you have not been to a Holley LS Fest event, you are missing out…especially the West event in Las Vegas. The East event gets a lot of attention, but there's some things that the West event offers the East event can't. From full on Pre Runner Off-road trucks to Pro 2 spec drift cars to your average Pro Touring Camaro and even LS powered Mustangs, … [Read more...]

LS Engines: Tools of The Trade

Tools For Working On LS Engines Lately we have been working on a few different LS engines and realized there are some tools out there that can help you build these engines into the reliable, leak free engines we all love. Now these tools aren't absolutely necessary - you could get by without them but it's like that old saying, you need to have the right tool for the right … [Read more...]

Don Estel’s 69 Nova SS

Story by Don Estel I bought this Nova SS in 2019 from a shop in Oregon. The car came with a 509 hp 502 GenVI motor and a Tremec TKO 600 5 speed trans and 12 bolt with 3:73 gears. The prior owner performed a 2 year restoration ending in 2004 and only put 800 miles on the car at the time I purchased it. I drove the car for a couple of months when I decided I wanted to make … [Read more...]

Project Collateral Damage: Measure Twice, Cut Once

Building The Ultimate 1970 Pro Touring Chevelle - "Collateral Damage" A few months ago our very own Lateral-G owner Jody picked up a 1970 Chevelle. He had a vision for the car - handles like it's on rails, tons of power, stop on a dime, and to be able to put ten's of thousands of miles a year on it. The goal wasn't go out and build the baddest auto cross machine ever, it … [Read more...]

Project No-Name: Blown LS Engine Build V3.0

Building A Blown LS On our Project 1966 Chevelle, we've dubbed it Version 3.0 since this is really the third major round of upgrades for the car. The very first time we upgraded the engine was over 10 years ago when we rebuilt the 454 BBC that came in the car. The second time around was four years ago when we ditched the BBC and went with a built LS3. In all honesty, the … [Read more...]

Holley LS Oil Pans – Which One Works Best?

Holley LS Oil Pans - 302-1, 302-2, 302-3 On Project No-Name Chevelle we have been using the Holley 302-1 oil pan for years. With the stroker LS3 it was the perfect pan for the engine and the car. The only downside was that when turning hard the inner tie-rods would hit the oil pan at full lock. We were going to weld some stops on to fix the issue, but didn't want to lose … [Read more...]

Holley LS Fest 2020 Can you believe it? It almost doesn't seem real - a car show actually happened this year!

Naturally there were a few changes from previous years. The biggest … [Read more...]

Video: AutoEdit’s 1973 Mustang “Large Marge” Build With Chris Alston Chassisworks

"Large Marge" 1973 Mustang Build With lots of time at home recently we've been watching a lot of YouTube. One channel we stumbled upon was that of Jason Lewis of AutoEdits and his 1973 Mustang. At first glance, a '73 Mustang isn't a popular choice. If people are restoring a '73 Mustang, it's usually the popular Mach 1 versions, not a base Mustang. But the more we watched … [Read more...]
