Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

Was guna be a while before the motor would arrive so got to work on the other stuff. So my truck was home finally but needed a lot of TLC... Wish I had a garage with a lift but oh well... Got under her and cleaned up and painted the frame up. Got roughed up and 4 stitches but worth it







Went to work on the rear of the truck





Wanted to repaint the axle, and shocks and well.... pretty much everything down there. So here goes





C-Clips Out



Inner Axle Rods



Ready with new caliper brackets on facing in



Test Fit (had to shim a bit)



All Back in

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build



Then did some work on the bed with fresh paint, fixed my fuel pump lid, put in my new 340lph pump in, and battery tray put in.







My bed cover was pretty nasty as well so took it off a clean, paint, and new 4mm cushion all around... the old stuff was messin up the paint



After this focused in on the Front of the truck:

Checking out the setup and the thrust bearing position



Started putting it together

Now it was time for the brakes

The Kore3 bracket needed a bunch of grinding on the spindle to seat properly



After some shims, they were on

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

I guess since your down in FL, you can just keep on building. Hell, your tracks don't even close down there, do they? If they do, it's only because you guys "Think it's cold" LOL. Not because it actually is.

Haha! Yea; its pretty warm year round here, I'm in Miami and rarely do we ever see below 60* lol

Thanks guys!! Glad your digging the progress

Had some time this past weekend and cleaned up the bay, got rid of the AC monster... plan on filling in the holes with sheet metal and painting later. Cleaned up the frame and got rid of some wires and painted the fenders while I was at it





Also these things came in

Blower Lid



LSA Fuel Rails



Blower w/TB and Injectors




This weekend doing the valves, cam, VVT delete, and hopefully blower.... maybe will be able to clean and paint it all as well.

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

Any header recommendations?? Biggest primaries I see on the shorties is 1" 5/8.... My buddy tried long tubes 1" 7/8 on his lq9 swap and was such a headache he went to the shorties.

Stainless works through cpw, but need their mounts, too.

Awesome project, keep it up!

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

I wouldn't use anything but Stainless Works longtubes on that, and as said, you must use CPW mounts for them to fit correctly, and use tubular upper control arms. Really, in a build like this, thats just minor anyway.

Love the blower. I kinda wish I had kept mine, just because it is a little easier, but since I daily mine, I couldn't justify a blower vs turbo.

Thanks man!

I wanted to use solid mounts so the longtubes went out the door and wound up getting mids 1" 5/8 primary.... should flow better than stock manifolds and like you mentioned minor stuff anyways.. Less headache at this point is always welcome.

Some progress this weekend started to take the motor apart and internally looks great, looks like it was well taken care of. Big bummer however the spring compressor tool I picked up didn't fit right so now they are sending me the right one.... So couldn't make it happen

Here are some pics or the motor:



Very healthy looking



Off goes the damper



Since we couldn't do more stuff for now, ended up cleaning up and painting the block up:





Will hopefully get the springs/rods/cam/vvt delete/blower on this week when I get a chance. Then have the acc. drive to put in and the crank needs a keyway still.... arg lol

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

Thanks guys! Hope everyone is having a nice holiday season so far

I don't have pictures but almost everything has arrived for the motor to go in minus the new transmission getting built... will likely take a few weeks before we get it in. Tony from Animal Performance Transmissions was very nice and hooked it up for the holidays.

Did the BTR dual springs the other day with new seats, seals, tip, and retainers.





Keyway pin came in for the crank from ATI and the new damper and pulley.... next will be cam with the VVT delete, oil pan. I hope to have this all in the truck within the next month or so.*fingers crossed*

Are those pics playing tricks on my eyes... it looks like the retainer is smaller diameter than the spring diameter.

Yea; it does look like it in the last picture your right, especially the closest one.... but look above they have a lip on the lower end that wrap over the springs. Would be a mess if they wren't when we start this thing up

p.s I'm guna take a look at it tonight when I get out, it actually looks like it might have chipped or something

Spoke to Aaron at BTR and he saw the pic, said it is normal and nothing to worry about as long as the retainer is centered. Thanks for bringing it up Petro

The spring is flat up top and has a pretty large surface area for the retainer to sit giving the illusion of the lip I mentioned.

Gotcha it just looked different to me. I thought it was probably the pic playing tricks on my eyes.

Would be awesome.... there is a guy who sells them?? I'm not the best at fabbing stuff up and making it look that nice

Got to put some work on the motor over the weekend:

Oil pan out, everything looked solid minus the 1st cam bearing that looked a tiny bit rough on the surface towards the bottom still smooth but not glass smooth like the top.. Read it is pretty common?



The cam



Changed the tensioner to the ls2 damper for the chain and has quite a bit of slack... some say its normal but feels a bit much... I'm guna change out the chain to the c5r one and see if it helps. The cam gear came with the kit



Here is pic of how it will look soon hopefully just mocked up nothing is bolted up yet

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

Man that is going to be a fun ride! I'll find those pics and post them up for you. He doesn't sell them but I plan to have one dabbed up just like it but it may be a couple of months.

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

I can't seem to find them and I was sure I had some of him making the template etc....Anyways the only thing you can't really see is the circle/hole with a squared portion at the top so that side would sit flush with the bracket since the plastic part of the pedal sticks out in that shape on that side.

I got a bit of work before I get to the pedal but as they say its a work in progress

What really sucks is the LSA dress kit I wanted is back stocked everywhere, really sucks... They have this one but I think that alternator is guna be a problem from the looks of it:



This is the one I ordered which would give me the clearance but apparently has been back stocked since Sept. from GM

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

I'm pretty sure that the one with alternator down low on driver's side won't clear the p/s gearbox.

Glanced over it.... I already have the LSA water pump and had my build planned around making it look as clean/factory as possible. I'm likely about a month away from having the motor and trans. in the truck... if by that time still no answer from GM I will start to re-think my options for sure.

Petro.... yea I agree on the gear box being an issue

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

I 100% understand on the factory look. I love that. I even used factory clamps on my hoses on my 1st go around, besides I really like them. Once I start the turbo build though, it just won't look factory, no matter what I do, but I am okay with that. LOL

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

Do you have a action plan on a driveshaft yet?

I've been splurging a bit on this overall build if its not obvious.... at this juncture I'm likely guna have a carbon one made with the driveshaft shop. My buddy went through a few on his LQ9 swap ext. cab getting vibrations and other issues then went CF... has been beating it up for over a year no problems.

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

I believe QA1 is making carbon ds now as well. No idea on their pricing, but defiantly shop that around. A driveshaft is something I won't cheap out on again. If you seen my build thread, you know why.

Re: xtremegeek LY6 LSA Build

Def. don't want to cheap out, learn from others mistakes or your own

Still need to get the motor and trans in to measure anyway so got some time.

Motor will be ready to go in the truck this weekend and tranny arrives next week so very soon!

I want to run some r888 tires with the new setup and might end up making my outer lip on the rear wheel a bit wider.... Did some measurements and looks like I can get away with about an inch more lip and would tuck the xtreme fender flare but would be right over the bed fender... would have to do some cutting. I could add an .5" inch and keep it safe.. I'll have to measure more in depth as the day nears.

Some pics of the gutted radiator support cleaned and painted:
