Re: Project WideBody

Thanks for the update. I am on the fence about my motor. I have a 305 now. I am debating on an LS swap or a 350 with a Fitech or Edelbrock injection.

Re: Project WideBody

and i just received my new 20" front wheels from COYS (a year later), so once tires arrive... a set of 18x7 and 20x8.5 Coys C5 gunmetals will be going by-by...
So what rear size are you running?
Tire sizes?

Re: Project WideBody

so, back when i ordered the new fronts, i spec'd the same wheel only in 20"...

not saying it was their fault, but when they arrived, the order was referenced from my 10 yr old original order, and a set set of 20 x 8.5 showed up.

i decided to keep them and re order the 20x7, thus giving me 4 wheels in the end to sell, rather than 2.

current set up is this...
20 x 7 / 225/35/20
20 x 8.5 / 255/35/20

for sale soon (not now, and i do have 2 interested parties)
18 x 7 / 4.25 bs
20 x 8.5 / 5.25 bs

Re: Project WideBody

you wont be disappointed.

install has some quirks...you have to trim the opening for the factory harness behind the cluster, not a big deal, but i prefered to open it up a lot.

since i have removed most factory wiring, i used the factory harness and colors to bench build my harness and tie it all in.

i mounted the control box under the column, drop the ash tray and look left...nice piece of factory sheet metal right there. i then ran the cable for the gps over to the pass. side and set the gps where the factory ecm sits.

i really wish they would make the control cable about 5', then both could mount behind the glove box with ease.

Awesome! I also got the BIM module to include air ride pressures so that will be another thing that needs to be mounted. Thanks for the info!

Re: Project WideBody

well, here is the latest update...

the truck is together, has been driving great. so good, that i listed the old wheels for sale, and so much interest in the ONE pic of the truck (that said NOT FOR SALE, but could be)...it has led to the departure of the truck...

she left this morning for the new home just out side of Dallas, TX...a few parts still in boxes.

ten years of changes and enjoyment have now opened the door for another...love to find a clean Pace truck or White SS.

Sad but totally understand Look at my title block of (SOLD) trucks... and that isnt even a quarter of the toys I/ve had. I am looking for a RCSB myself. Tired of C10s but want to keep it old school! Cant wait to see what you get next.
