  1. Random thought thread

    Anybody have any recommendations for an exhaust shop? May need to have a couple of bends/welds made to finish out the exhaust if we can't make it work. Does anybody know anyone who does 3D printing? Would like to mount my wideband using the factory ashtray/cigarette lighter tray.

    Reflashed the car last night and it idles much better. Not sure if it didnt write to the ecm or what. Need to get the driveshaft back in and the exhaust buttoned up and she will be ready to hit the road again. Planning on getting that stuff done on Sunday and it all goes well and my son hasnt made his debut then I will run it through emissions on Monday.

    Tried to upload the video but this will have to do.

    I was almost ready to take you up on the 60lbers and then they finally showed up. We fired the car up for the first time last night and everything sounded good. Oil pressure was a little lower than I liked but it was cold and that oil looked like sludge when I filled it up so we'll what it looks like when it's had a chance to run for more than a few minutes. Didn't want to idle and had no gas pedal with the ls2 tb. Swapped the original back on and everything worked again and could give it a few revs.

    Engine is in and just about ready to go. Picture is a couple of weeks old but the knock sensors, harness, plugs/wires and headers are on. At least two plug wires sit directly on the headers so I'll need to wrap them or figure something out. Need to get the intake manifold and fuel rails on but new fuel pump is in. Transmission is still out of the car but that will be the next to go in. Ordered 42lb injectors from Brian Tooley but haven't heard anything since I ordered on the 15th and I'm afraid they are going to hold everything up. Waiting on their response but may need to find injectors soon if anybody happens to have a set of stock ls1/ls6 injectors. My old injectors are shot form sitting. Should have seen some of the old fuel that came out of the lines.

    Made a little progress over the last couple of weeks. Getting close to getting the engine back in. Still cleaning and preparing everything and getting parts in. Old fuel pump is out and tank has been drained.

    Depends on the package but yes around 1k. Some of his lower packages were 8-900 and top out at 1500-2k. Also depends on how much paint correction he has to do. We got the ceramic pro gold package which is "4 layers of ceramic pro 9h followed with one layer of ceramic pro light. Exterior windows treated with ceramic pro rain and rim faces coated with ceramic pro wheel and caliper" for 1500. Said it would take about 3 days.

    If anybody is looking at ceramic coating this guy looks legit. Came highly recommended from the Tesla community and his work looks good. We're going to have him ceramic coat the wife's new Model Y.

    Lol nah. Maybe one of these days it will get a LSA blower but main goal is to get the car back on the road. It's been sitting for a few years at this point. V1s aren't really known for their 1/4 mile performance. It will be much more likely to see a road course before a 1/4 mile at this point. I plan on beefing up the rear end but that's secondary until it is running and driving. Baby is due Jan 14 so we are on the clock. It's stock bottom end LS6 with arp rod bolts and decent sized cam. The heads were sent to AI for port/polish and bumped the compression up slightly so it should make around 420-430 to the wheels.

    Nothing like a baby on the way to get a project motivated. I planned on checking with the guy who took over Phil's Transmission now known as Matt's Transmission to see if they had any interest. It's going to take quite a bit of time and effort but she will live again.

    Update: Engine is back from Shackletts and ready to go. It's good thing I never tried to run the engine after I got it back from the machine shop in Murfreesboro. We will be moving the car this weekend to a friends shop where it will finally be resurrected. It's been a long time coming to say the least. Any recommendations for a transmission shop to go through the T56?

    What's up guys? Been awhile. I've seen some mentions about ceramic coating and am currently looking for a decent shop for the wife's new car. Anybody have a shop they've used for ceramic coatings?

    That thing is sweet. I'd love to have a charger with the white/black color scheme.

    Think a guy I know is part of the ownership group of that restaurant. Sounds like an interesting burger to try.

    Have you tried Stock & Barrel? They have a decent burger too. We went there after games in Knoxville and now they have a Nashville location.
