It's practically a nascar stock car, but turns great both ways lol. And believe it or not, when we finished it, he drove it straight to the DMV and got plates for it so he can drive it on the street. If that's not awesome, I don't know what its.
    Great job on the Camaro!

    Do you happen to know if there is a build thread on the internet for the Mustang project??? I would love to check it out.

    Thank you. I took all the pictures over the last year and 9 months. I've made decent progress for doing 90% of the work on Saturdays. I have more pictures from the last couple months I need to go through and upload.

    Be patient. I have just a few more things to finish, then I'm going make a video of the nastiest burnout our shop has ever witnessed.

    Thank you! I'm not sure if there is a build thread on it. Apparently it was originally built as the prototype for a kit car. Once it was finished, the builder decided against producing it, so it's one of a kind. It's had a couple owners, the current one being our client. I found a for sale video on YouTube a few months ago before I painted it, but not a video of it on the track unfortunately. I'll see if I can find it again.

    It's all good. I have to finish the intercooler piping, build the intake piping, finish fastening the fuel lines and brake lines to the chassis, and buy/install some 5 point harnesses. Those are the big things at least.

    Stock turbo/stock injector duramax's can put out 550-575hp at the wheels, which is roughly 1000lb. ft. So with my PPE tuner, I can probably get it at or above 500hp. I will find out for sure if I make it to a dyno day in the near future.

    I would really take a look at EFI live. I switched from an edge tuner on my Duramax and it was a night and day difference. Running the DSP 5 switch I can go from a 50 hp over stock tune to a 150hp tune or even a tow tune with the turbo brake. Truck drives like stock and will not smoke at all unless I load it up in 5th or 6th and then it will only blow a black puff and take off as soon as the turbo spools. The only reason you would ever know the truck is not stock is the torque converter. It can lock up pretty hard and is only really obvious in traffic when it will unlock at about 15 mph and when I roll back into the throttle it comes up a few hundred rpm and locks again. Im running the Suncoast LVL 5 on my allison which obviously you are not. EFI live is the way to go in my opinion though. Truck should be making just over 500hp at the wheels and something like 900ft lbs of torque.

    Yes I know that EFI is the best, and it will eventually be what I use, but for the time being I'm going to use the PPE. So far it's working pretty well.

    Haven't posted pics in awhile, so I figured you guys would like to see something new. I haven't taken as many pics as normal (sorry) but these are some random ones from the last couple months.

    It's amazing how well a bent clothes hanger makes it easier to figure out the proper bends for brake lines.

    I made a second battery tray to mount the second battery in the trunk.

    I bent the intercooler mounting tabs to wrap around the radiator support.

    Radiator hoses/pipes and intercooler piping.

    Couple pics of how I made the MAP sensor fit in the intercooler pipe.







    Started building the intake. I bought Empire Diesel's stock turbo weld on flange.

    I had to shorten the oil filler neck another inch to clear the intake.



    I'm a little on the fence about the intake. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. It pretty much had to come over the top of the motor because it didn't have enough space to go over the passenger side of the motor, otherwise I would have had to cut a hole in the hood...

    I did put the gill on though.



    I took the car for a short drive and I got some fuel at the gas station around the corner and gave it some hell when I left. Burned the tires through 3rd gear and kept it straight the whole time.

    So far, daddy likey

    Couple videos.


    This is when I took a friend for a quick test ride. Spinning the tires through second and letting off. Chirped the tires shifting into third, not a full throttle run.


    Duramax Camaro Test Drive - YouTube


    This one I took my fiance for a ride around the block. The video really accentuates the rattles from the doors being disassembled and the lift pump being annoyingly loud. The rear axle is also making a whining sound over 20mph, so that's on my list of things to fix soon. This was also not a full throttle run.

    I have only loaded a small tune on it and it runs great. There's still a lot of little things to work out and fix, but it'll get there.
