😳😳😳 It’s time.
It’s been a long time coming.
Yes, that’s oil pouring from the car after the #burnout
Boo thang has a broken heart. That’s ok. Daddy is about to get surgical up in this piece! Baby mama has the blues and I got the cure!
All jokes aside, the #pontiac 400 #engine is #bad. Pretty bummed about it too. The engine was built by one of the best in #Dallas
I figure I got a little free time on my hands...let me take a crack at it.
After noticing low oil pressure I drained the oil and changed the filter. While under the car a bottom end knock was audible. Found a bunch of cork gasket material clogging the filter. Really bummed because the engine has less than 2k miles on it.
You start from where you are with what you’ve got so here we go!! I’m #rebuilding the #400. I’m thinking about doing a few more upgrades while I’m at it. She’s been neglected far too long. She’s been built for 7 years and I have less than 2k miles on the build. I think I can drop a little dough and get her finished up and start enjoying her! I can’t let her sit and suffer any longer. She deserves to be shown off!
Transmission: Currently running a #turbo400 Thinking about going with a #700r4. Thoughts?
Rearend: 3:55 It was rebuilt 2k miles ago as well. I want to see how it drives after the build and possible transmission change.
Paint: #gm Cyber Metallic Grey. Not changing it. Love it!😍 Needs touchup.
Wheels: #foose Legends. I sill like em.
Tires: #bfgoodrich #gforce T/A
Interior: 90% complete. Need suggestions on a #console and some #audio
Now would be a great time to do the wire harness I’m still kicking myself for not replacing when the build one completed. Huge regret, but here we are. Thinking about going #painlesswiring Thoughts? That was the brand to get about 10 years ago. Has anything changed?
I’d love to do something with the #suspension too. It’s been lowered and has traction bars. It rides like hell. #suggestions ?? #teach me something. I’m ready to #learn
