I hope to get back to it after a 6 hour MTB race in a couple weeks (assuming I don't crash and break something). It's not stainless Marc, not sure what grade of steel it is but it's not showing any signs of oxidation (yet). I do need to get moving so I can decide if I want to get it powder coated before the paint shop if there's much of a lead time for paint which I expect there will be.You'll find again time to work on the project...
I see you didn't protect neither coat the Speedtech chassis... Is this stainless steel??
Not much to look at really, the body is an empty shell. Here's a picture of the inside, just a bunch of wires and control modules and a fusebox that I need to find a home for. Vintage air suit case hung to help figure out where everything can go. Need to put the gauge cluster in to get a better see if some things I was thinking will work. Waiting on a couple hole saws to put the cluster together so I can put it in. I'll get an overall picture once I get the subframe moved back under it, hopefully this coming week before I do the MTB race - just in case I break something crashing.....The car? Interior?
Yeah, it's a ways up there isn't it? I had an oh crap moment when I put the fenders on and saw what it looked like. I did a bunch of measurements and thinking about it before I ordered the hood but still OMG I thought! Anyway, Stephen and I did some more measuring off the fenders and I think our plan will work, I hope to be able to post a picture after we get a bit further that will show it works. If it doesn't I'll just have to jump off a bridge LOL.Out of curiosity what are you considering for a hood? Looks like that LT sits up pretty high.
Absolutely not to many questions, that's what these forums are all about right?I guess you like those Ultimate Headers? Would you recommend them? What kind of flange or fitting does the header have to connect the exhaust pipe? There website just shows an open pipe. I guess you could weld a flange or ball and socket to the stainless steel?
My engine mounts and subframe forced the engine to sit very close to the firewall. I could not disconnect the direct injection electrical plug on the back of the engine. The engine sound deadener foam was rubbing on the firewall.

I chose to cut a hole in my firewall and add more room for my hand to unplug the connector.

Did you have the same problem?
My LT4 sits a lot lower than your LT5. I don't know if it is the different engine or if it is the different subframe and motor mounts.

I know, I ask too many questions.
You could put an LT in without cutting the firewall but it would be really tight and the engine would really need to come pretty far forward. I think Mark Stielow did that on one of his builds and an LT4.Holley makes a set of headers for a DSE subframe and LT engine. I am tired of buying Chinese stuff. I like the Ultimate Headers but they only make a set of shorty headers for a DSE subframe and LS engine.
The Ultimate header looks to be better quality at a cheaper price compared to the Holley header.
Ha, I am happy to hear you have the same clearance issues as me.
