    Default 67 Chevelle - 6.0/4L60E

    New here, Not really classifying my project as "Pro Touring" but am building it myself to look good and hopefully drive decent. I will post a few pics to get everyone up to date.

    Built the engine about a year ago - 6.0, ported heads, LS6 cam, LS2 intake - Hoping for 400hp & 20+mpg. Life gets in the way, yada,yada - Anyways I had a day off finally so I dropped the engine/trans in. 1" setback mounts, Shorty headers, Smaller PS pulley. Everything seems to clear so far. I need to modify the trans mount a little by dropping the tab for the trans down a bit. Still looking for a Grand Cherokee steering box.

    OK, I hopefully got the motor in for the last time - I used a 302-2 pan and I am telling you, The factory couldn't have designed it better - Fits perfect. Excellent ground clearance, Tie rods clear and I was able to get it in the car over the x-member with the trans on it. I am using 1" setback mounts and it has just enough room for the trans dipstick with a slight bend to get it closer to the head. I could not be happier with that Holley pan, Great job on the design. Here are a few pics. The tie rod pics are at full lock.

    I installed my MagnaFlow 2.5" stainless exhaust with X pipe & polished mufflers. Fit great and I dumped the tips right behind the tires so I was able to use one of the other tail pipe options for the down pipes to connect to my shorty headers.

    Me & my son installed the dash in my car - Needed to get it in for the wiring - Car was completely stripped it's a puzzle getting it back together. I made a lexan insert for the cluster in the oven over a mold so it had a flat area for the gauges.

    Made a bracket for my fuse block & relays - PCM is behind that mounted under the fender - Finished putting loom on my harness - Glad that is over and hopefully everything works - Fingers crossed.

    The damn thing runs! :thumbsup: After what seemed like a mile & a half of wiring modifying a truck harness it fired right up - The first video is the first time it ran with new heads, cam, intake & harness - I was stoked. :D The smoke is coolant burning off the header from a plug I missed in the head.

    Second video is the sound with the 2.5" Magnaflows with X pipe - Very happy with the sound. I am using a PCM programmed for a 5.3 with different injectors and will eventually get the right tune but it friggin runs.

    Finally rolled the 67 out of the garage with the drive train in it to see how it's sitting. 6.0 / 4L60E - Small block springs with 2" spindles. Rear I am not sure - Were in the car when I got it. Tires are 235/45/17 & 275/40/17

    I've had the car 5 years so this was a pretty big deal for me.

    I'm pretty happy where it's at - The top of the door (where your arm sits) is 37" Complete interior still needs to be installed along with the windshield so it will probably come down a bit yet.

    Just thought i'd share. Opinions welcome.

    LS2 covers. I have since made a cover for the battery to clean it up a little.

    Now on to the cooling. I changed the t-stat housing around and the dump in the radiator so now I am moving onto the electric fans - Used what I had on hand - Old road sign, Actually worked very well. Did the cutting & bending on my break at work & finished it up at home. Don't mind the PVC pipe - I will detail it out & paint later.

    Worked out well, just wanted to share.

    Al, what power steering pulley did you use? Is it OEM # or a Dorman part? Nice car by the way.

    Thanks for the props. Hopefully by spring it will be on the road. Need to install the complete interior from carpet to headliner, install all of the glass, bleed the brakes and put on the trim/bumpers.

    Dorman 300-201 PS pulley.

    Awesome build, I am going to be starting on my Dads 67 Convertible on the next few months. He has had it since he was 17. It was the car that got me into cars. Love 67's.
