Higher miles typically. But usually prices are more dependent on how whole they are. Harness, ecm, accessories etc.

Put in a few hrs today. Stripped the interior, running battery cables and audio stuff etc. Mounting a platform (just hanging loose in pics) for my amps, plan on putting some circuit breakers, fuse panel, battery charging posts, and a battery disconnect on it as well with all wires hidden behind. Also building a trunk organizer platform on the bottom, hide the battery in the bottom of it.

It looks vertical, but it's not. It's on a angle.

I also received my new adjustable fuel pressure regulator, just waiting for my injectors to come back in to reassemble that.

I found a 2gb flash drive under the carpet in the car. It's loaded with about every type of music imaginable. Shows it was last loaded with music in 2011.

So much yet to do.


I did hear that my injectors made it safely to Hawaii and should be on the return Monday. That exciting. Hopefully get the intake back together so I can get the new rail and fuel pressure regulator installed.

#BSTDMRC #LSSWAPPEDMARAUDER by Cheapthrillb2, on Flickr
Today's project. Drove to lane automotive (1.5 hrs one way) to put hands on the B&m and tci shifters. Didn't know which I wanted so wanted to feel them out..... Well they are absolutely identical. I couldn't find a difference in any way between the two. Pretty happy with the turn out aside from the screw heads in the panel. But couldn't come up with a way to make the indicator bezel tight to it w/o doing it. Thankfully I had spare center console parts to practice with.

Old shifter didn't line up with gear pattern (Ford VS Chevy) and had no lockout from park to first so any bump of the shifter and it moved easily. I hit neutral at the track on accident and bounced it over 7k and 16 psi at 120mph.

I was bummed I didn't get a mullet in the box or a foot shaped gas pedal.

I would of got an outlaw shifter or Diablo style but since I do drive it on the street the reverse lockout lever seemed it would get pretty old pretty fast. And I wasn't sure how clean of a install I could make with that style.

Got my tce lines in and finished test install. Just waiting on the new front wheels to come in to test fit before painting the calipers.


Working on relocating the turbo/exhaust etc. Continuing progress to clean up the engine bay... Current state...

Also working on relocating the radiator to under the core support instead of behind it.
