Been thinking about transmissions lately. Definately staying manual. wondering if maybe a nv4500 might be a better idea to stay with overdrive. Any ideas?

We had to build a gantry crane just to move this sucker. i wasn't going to pay $650 at HF, so some scrap, a chain hoist, and some wheels and VIOLA! perfect crane!



made it mobile!


hidden under the grease:


ready to go in for some fitting:


off with the bed!




moved back the cab to make room to set down the engine.


ahhh progress! i have the next 12 days off so stay tuned.

Made some room:


between the rails for the first time!


ok so the cab would need a 7" body lift......




touching the floor......


making some room.


oh, hello there..


have to rework the front braces and notch the frame to come forward about 4".


enough for tonight, back at it tomorrow!

better fit today with fresh eyes!

If we just taper the firewall inwards from the top i can get the v/c out UNDER THE HOOD!


We'll graph this back in and shorten the trans cover plate:



Found a local place that can source used AG pulleys! so it'll fit the rad in there good.


much better.


only a few inches low now!


Driver side trans bracket into floor.


pass side:

Got to the garage bright and early and hung the inner fenders to get a better look at how it'll fit in there. man it gets better everyday. i can't wait to get some mounts made up, and let it hang in there to see how much it squats.

I was doing some reading and i saw some recommend a HX35 turbo. is it worth the upgrade? is there a better turbo? or maybe swap housings an wheels on the one that's on it? what kind of boost am i looking at with the factory vs. upgraded setups? again i'm looking for about 500 RWHP and RELIABILITY.
