I also upgraded to the new Holley touch screen from the older version. Fabricated a new dash panel out of aluminum to house it as well.

Last spring, was out on a hot lap with a buddy. Laid into it, making a quick pull from 65 or so.....BOOM, clank, clunk, bang, twang

Hauled it home and pulled the rear diff cover....and all the gears fell out. lol

Put it all back together, went to take it for a ride...backed it out of the shop....put it in drive...no forward gear at all. FACK!


So short story long, it's now got a fully built and billet'd 4L80E with a transbrake, and i sold the 12 bolt and put a 35 spline Moser Dana 60 in it with a True-Trac and Wilwood brakes in.

That ended up being an expensive beat run.

Re: Project Family Truckster: 2wd Conversion Turbo LSx Blazer Build

The new rear end and trans seem to be working well.
Here's me and my buddy's turbocharged Viper from 40-130ish. In mexico, of course.

Mr. Turbo everything. I bet your Hotwheels had turbos. I will have to try to turbo something someday. Looks like a serious blast!

Haha. And to think, it all started with a ride in a Buick T-type over 20 years ago. Took awhile for the boost addiction to ramp up but it's full force now.

What's that boat in your avatar? Looks sharp from the little I can see.

Re: Project Family Truckster: 2wd Conversion Turbo LSx Blazer Build

Its an old 1986 Baja 200 sport with a 200hp Yamaha. Still does about 70 mph. My wife bought it for me. I wonder how fast it would go with triple turbos...:devil
I saw one of those turbo T types in the 80's at the Baylands Raceway up in California when I was a kid. It did a wheel stand and came back up half way down the track. Thing was ridiculous. It had a big "V6" on the side of it in graphics. My 66 Chevelle did an 11.5 in the quarter first time out and they sent me in to tech which said I had to have scattershields and fire extinguishers etc. So I didn't have any money for all that rollbar jazz so I never got to race again. I was not selling the car. Girlfriend wrecked it...

Nice rig. I used to have a 17' Hydrostream with a 200 Merc on it. That thing didn't need turbos...it was scary as hell just the way it was.

Haha, that's one thing I won't put home brewed turbos on. Bump the keys and it starts every time.
If only I could afford the $250,000 EACH for the Merc turbo motors....

Nope, not this year, unfortunately. There's been several years that HRPT has gone pretty much right past my work, and my house, but this year isn't one of them.
