Dont worry im sure come next winter I will be building another LOL. Car ADD.

To answer costs here is a rough estimate

Hotside piping/vbands/flexpipe- $400ish
Wastegates on sale -$450
BOV on sale- $100
Injectors on sale $305
Turbo “ebay GT45” $250
Turbo Blanket- $40
DEI Header wrap-$150ish
Intercooler-$135
Intercooler piping/vband and cast elbow- $175ish

$1700

I built the kit around the GT45 knowing I would want to upgrade to a T4 Borg warner S475 or S480. since theya re similar size. The T4 S475 is around $850usd. With the way the build is taking off I wish I would bought it already lol.

Looking to buy a lot more shit in the upcoming months. I got my trans mount made this weekend so the 4l80e is going out to be built soon, ordering a PTC single disk converter, SFI flexplate, TCI trans controller and looking into a plug and play EFIsourse MS3-gold box to control the motor. I already have a stock harness 90% finished but I figure I may bite the bullet and get it done with before day care bills come at summer end lol. Working lots of OT these days.

Thats great!

It will give people like me realistic expectations on the cost of horsepower/kickasscar parts per dollar

My own turbo project involves a 180HP turbo V8..lol

Car is ALMOST ready to fire. Pulled the tune from the PCM, need to work on a custom OS to get it fired up. Been a LONG time since I went that in depth with EFIlive so im sure it will take me all week to get it fired up. I do have a leak at the fuel rails that I need to address. However I tapped the rails with a mallet this morning and the injectors popped in. So I may be good to at least fire it up then mess with the brakets I made.

Gauges are all wrapped up though!

Wow I havnt posted on here in a long time!

Car has been running great, recently I had my balancer bolt back off. I ended up pinning the balancer since it was a bit messed up and same with the crank. I designed up a guide tool at work and made it out of Hardened H13 and drill the crank with a carbide drill. Waiting on the ARP bolt but the oil in the car didnt look promising. i saw some bearing material. Hope the motor will last the rest of the season then decide on what I wanna do. Been debating parting with the turbo stuff and going LS3 6 speed. but thats some pretty good coin. I may end up just forging the 5.3L maybe bore it to an iron 346. Who knows. Still thinking 6 speed though.

I got my new seats in this weekend as well. Also ordered a nice Nardi Steering wheel which should be in this week.

I also made some spoiler extensions I was planning on making a group buy for but more tire kickers than interest. The white one with the third brake like is only on by 2 way tape as I wanted to make sure im happy with it before I drill holes in my spoiler. I think I prefer the non brake like version. However I have other plans for this winter which may need to be done before I go ahead with bolting it on. (diffuser etc)

Anyways there is my small update and a few new pics of the car.

Jay

Thanks guys, Im hoping to keep the updates going, I kinda stopped as I thought they were killing the forum. I got the car running Thursday night, oil pressure was all good idle but have yet to take it for a spin as I was gone camping for the weekend. My Nardi wheel is in as well just need to grab it from my buddy.

Motor seems to be fine! Did a couple quick blasts around. Amazed what changing the seats and steering wheel did to the car. I literally feel like I'm in a go-cart. Steering feels nicer and more firm.

I did not. It is something I have been wanting to do since the Header is pretty damn close to the rag joint. Close enough I had to cut the dust shield off. Planning on a Kmemeber anyways so at that time I will probably swap it. I missed out on a good T56 combo yesterday. Debated to long and it sold on me :(. About to buy another combo though!

Guess I'll have a stout 4l80e combo for grabs soon!

For now the motor seems to be fine. I think down the road it may happen. At least the trans I want till be in the car, a long block is a simple swap!
