aftercooler

The aftercooler is from a Chevy P30 van. It required trimming about 3/4" of the header panel and dropped in like it was made for it.

Ill probably leave the fuel plate as is......trying to keep fuel milage somewhat respectable. I do have a friend that grinds 4B fuel plates if the bug hits me.

Are you saying you bought a new NV4500 that has been fixed? Because originally, both the GM and Dodge NV4500 had fifth gear problems.

For more info, see Dan the Gear Man's articles.

Correct, bought a new case......no 5th gear nut problem. Chevy also put the shifter up a little closer to the firewall so this gave some extra floor room which I need for two more shifters

hey tndonor, thats a really nice truck. What color is the paint? Is that the gunmetal pearl used on the TJ's and Xj's? Thats the color I was thinking of using on my J20.

Hows the vibration? I'm pondering doing either a 4bt swap or a supercharged 231 Buick swap.

Yes the paint in gunmetal....code pq7. I saw a sample at the paint store and my decisions were over.

Ill be happy to let anywone know in the SC area know of my visits down there. Id love to see what everyone else has.

Vibration...... Im not roadworthy yet. HOWEVER....there is some vibes on startup and shutdown. I rode in an early bronco and it was not noticable compared to a healthy V8. There are many fctors there....isolation mounts....weight of the vehicle. I am heavy enough, it is a not an issue. I am also using a 4B that is internally balanced, with fluid isolation mounts, with a hefty weight.

shiny stuff

where do you get that shiny insulation that you have on the floor and firewall? does it have a name besides "shiny installation"? good luck with the build, the truck looks great and its my dream set up.

shiny insulation

The insulation is for air conditioning ducts. You can even get some that has adhesive backing and just cut, peel, and apply. 10-15 dollars per roll is better than dynomat prices!!!

In all fairness.....my truck looked rougher than Mikels when I got it. 3 gallons of bondo, who knows how much fiberglass, 2 gallons of primer, 3 coats of paint, 3 coats of clear, and 4 months later I had a good platform to start with.

I polished a turd of a body the best I could. There were rust gaps in the bedsides I could put my whole hand in. Believe it or not I am jealous of most everyone elses truck because they are a better platform. Underneath all the makeup mine is ugly.

Thats why we do this. Its fun and rewarding when its done!

You have a beautiful and very well thought out truck, VERY similar to what I'm doing (less lift, VE pump and D70 for mine). I can't wait to see your truck running.

update

Well here is an udate for those following. I got a stub shaft made to go between the D300 and NP205. Also is the bling for the truck. I found a way to have braided stainless hydraulic clutch lines made. I think it looks infinately better than the plastic line I was going to use.
