  1. LSx Nova Build

    It's not much lol it needs a little work but it will be nice out there. Can work on my car anytime, shoot my guns whenever, blow stuff up or whatever lol
  2. LSx Nova Build

    Well I am getting my nova in a couple months and need to start planning out the build. I want to do all the work that I can do myself. Idc if it takes forever or I mess up a lot of stuff in the process. I want to learn and this car has a lot of sentimental value to me and I would be happier if I built it. First is getting rid of the 406 SBC and powerglide. If any of you know anyone who wants an alcohol 406 that runs 5.90s/9.80s let me know. The engine hasn't been raced in about 3 years so i would refresh it with new bearings and rings. On to good news. It already had a mini tub, heidts front end, adjustable suspension and a leaf spring set up built and designed Ron Rhodes. I was going to do a 4 link but its cutting 1.2x 60 ft times. Also has a line lock and cage nhra certified to run in the 9s. My question is what computer set up to go with. I am thinking Holley efi. I am going to do either a 370 or 408 ls engine with ls3 heads. I also want to do a turbo 400 built by Cameron powers (built barry's trans guy). Idk who to build at least the short block. I was thinking Texas speed or Thompson motorsports. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it

  5. LSx Nova Build

    I got a lot done last weekend. Pretty much finished everything besides get it running. I got my turbo back and some new 210 injectors. Now my harness doesn't fit these injectors so I have been waiting for adapters for them. Should be here Monday. Also changed the rear shocks to some double adjustable Vikings and have new coil overs for the front on the way. Hopefully I can get it hooking again while also keeping it on the ground. I got everything else back on the car and ready to go. May put some stock ls1 injectors in it to start it up to see if anything is wrong. Ready to get it back going again.

    It's not that spacious lol it's not long at all. Having the inner fenders out helps though lol
  8. LSx Nova Build

    I got a lot done yesterday. Work from 8 to 3, then had to rush home to get my taxes done. My buddy David came and helped me get everything in the car. I changed the a arm bushings, bearings, new pads, got the motor and trans in, the front accessories on, radiator in, the hot side on, and most of the wiring. Waiting for my turbo to get back and to buy some new injectors. New Viking crusader rear shocks should be here this week. Hopefully I can get it on the dyno is about 2 weeks.

    I'm thinking of doing a 417 lower intake and a 6 inch cowl. It will fit then lol

    It was on 10 lbs lol and we are completely done with the hood yet. Going to take a da to it and trim it a little more. But I am suppose to go get my motor either tomorrow night or Saturday.
  12. LSx Nova Build

    I have done a lot and not a lot at the same time with the car. I put some new leaf springs on the car, which lowered it 3 inches. Thank goodness, it was sitting way to high. But now my shocks bottom out so I am getting new ones. Needed something more adjustable anyway. More than likely will get some vikings. Also cut the hood to fit the intake/intercooler. Looks so much better with the hood on. Also yanked the motor out. Didn't make enough power so we went with a custom cam and some better lifters. On top of that last week I sent the turbo off to get bored and for a billet wheel. I should make a decent amount more with the new set up.

    Thank you lol I am way late. I've just been so busy lately. Trying to work on my car, work, family coming in, trying to buy a new place and just life. I deleted taptalk off my phone so I haven't been getting on. I actually like the browser version better.
