    I haven't updated in a while but that's because we've been working one exhaust and turbo plumbing. Not very conducive to continuous updates so here is where were at right now. The 2.5" exhaust is plumbed back to the turbos and the 2" is plumbed up to the front cross member and then it transitions to 2.5" before going into the bottom of the intercooler. I've got the oil cooler mocked up into place and I'm ready to do some bead rolling on the pipes where the silicone couplers will be and then I need to do miles of finish welding on everything.

    That looks awesome! So is the cold side all aluminum?

    Hi Stephen,

    Yes per STS recommendation the charge pipes are 2" aluminum and then step up to 2.5" before the intercooler. I'm going to come out of the intercooler 3" a d up to the intake. I still need to block off the old ports on the intercooler and finish the mounts too.

    Thanks for the compliments guys! I need to get the end pipes pulled off so I can bead roll them before I finish weld them. So much going on under there!

    So after doing some searching around for commonly used lower hoses in LS conversions I found this gates hose that looked like it might be really close. Well after trimming about an inch off one side it now fits really well. This is Gates hose 20450 which comes off something like a 1985 Jeep CJ7 in case anyone is looking in the future.





    I also got a chance to start eye balling the down pipes after the turbine wheels. From my research it's basically best to go as big as possible here. Realistically that's going to be 3" for me. So, I picked up some 2.5 to 3" transitions from Summit and trimmed them way down. Here I've grabbed a left over 3" radius to start seeing what kind of room I've got. This is a medium radius bend and I've got some much tighter and also some that are larger radius so I should be able to get it to work no matter what.





    Another thing that I need to start looking at before the down pipes get too far back is my fuel tank situation. I've got the stock tank and it's in good condition but I really don't want to have a sump hanging down. I've also got an extra 69 Camaro Rock Valley tank that looks like if I were to cut about 4" out of each side might fit pretty well. Not sure yet what that would do for the total capacity so I need to do some math there on that idea.

    That's it for now, more updates soon!

    Thanks a lot! Maybe this thing will make it to RTTC? We'll see. It wouldn't be painted but could be good to shake the car down.

    Sorry for the lack of updates. The wife and I bought an older house and I haven't been in the shop for over 2 months. Hoping to have updates again soon.

    I hope the new/old house is working out well. Any time in the shop with the Stude? It is an incredible build.

    Yes thanks for following up. The house is finished up and I've been working on our 65 Olds F/85 getting it ready for HRPT which is only 3 weeks away. Fixed a whole bunch of small things on it and some bigger things as well. Look for some updates on the Studebaker around the end of June .

    That's awesome Josh. That was fun when they were doing the Cruise on Main stuff. Then it kind of fizzled out. Hopefully one day the Studebaker will be out of the garage and get a little vitamin D. Haha.

    I thought since I got back from HRPT 14 and it's still kind of quiet around the shop I would mess around with this car a little bit. A while ago I sent some rear wheels back to Jason Rushforth to have him widen them from a 9" to a 12" for the back of this car. Well I got them back and they look killer. I also in the mean time picked up a low mileage LQ4 from another friend so I've begun transferring all of my accessories and oil pan over to that engine. Hoping to slide it and the T56 back into the car so I can continue fabrication. Here are some pictures..















    I also had the chance to pick up another hood and drivers side door. Both of which were fixable but since I found these this will be much easier to start with.
