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 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...]
