Re: Fastfreddys 454ss

Next is the rear roll pan with wind diffuser (I will see how close I can get to my rendering)and interior,but Iím changing the carpet and center console to black. I got the carpet from classic industries but I think I will lay some dynomat down first.Then using some bucket seats from a 2015 dodge caravan that are black with a red stitch off craiglist for $200 ( I just have to figure out what wires goes to the side air bags and not hook them up). For all the purist. I am still saving everthing. So no 454ssís were harmed in these mods.

Re: Fastfreddys 454ss

Mocked up the fiberglass roll pan I got off amazon today. Fits pretty good for fiberglass.Now I have to take it off to install the diffuser fins and paint it.

Re: Fastfreddys 454ss

Painted the rear roll pan. I though I would give a preval sprayer a tray again.I sprayed a single stage urethane. Works really well. Not bad for $12 including a rustoleum hand sprayer from Home Depot (I went through 1 sprayer with a jar and 1 refill) I used this same sprayer when I painted a hood a few years ago. Just make sure you use a high end primer no rustoleum or dulicolor.You donít need any special filters and you throw the air sprayer cartridge away after your done. Great alternative to someone who doesnít have a compressor.Gives you a little bit of orange peel over a real spray gun. But I was planning on cutting and buffing it anyway. Next I will double stick the air fins.

Re: Fastfreddys 454ss

Taught my 17 year old neighbor how to paint a hood today. Turn out perfect. Had a little freight damage that I had to take care of first. Next week I’m going to tint the windows. Then start on the interior. Going to install the black carpet, dynomat the floor, finish wiring the sound system, replace the seats and dye the door panels black that I got off ebay. There goes another tote to fill with the factory stock parts. Should take about a week on the interior. Then comes the engine performance mods.

Re: Fastfreddys 454ss

I've been looking @ this style of hood to replace my damaged one. Steel hood? Manufacturer?

Re: Fastfreddys 454ss

I bought the hood off summit racing. It was $319 with an extra $99 for freight. Best priced hood anywhere and they fit really well. It’s all steel. Does not come with a spring or release. Make sure you save those before you hall your damaged hood off. What they don’t show or tell your is this hood comes with a plastic ram air intake insert. But if you want to cut the intake out, the best tool I found is an air reciprocating saw. I added a pic of the back of hood

Re: Fastfreddys 454ss

This might bore some of you. But I desided to send out my tbi to tbiparts for a rebuild off ebay. I had the throttle blade base plate bored to 54mm, thinner blades, and removed the adjustable internal regulator. Since I have no way to adjust the fuel pressure, since I removed the internal tbi regulator. I added an external fuel regulator with a gauge. I really did want to spend $150 on a aeromtive 13301, $150 on earl an fittings and a $30 gauge. I decided to buy a universal adjustable fuel regulator off amazon for $55. There were a lot of good reviews on this regulator. But the only think is you have to buy better o,-ring for the 3/8 fitting into the regulator and the fuel lines included in the kit are to short and are garbage. So you need to buy about 5 feet of braided fuel line.The only two fitting I had to buy was for the 5/16 metal fuel line to 6an and a fitting from the return on the tbi to the return. If the adjustable fuel regulator sucks. Iíll just Buy an aeromotive regulator and still be money ahead.

Re: Fastfreddys 454s

I had a hard time incorporating the fuel lines and return line to a external regulator while using the factory tbi.I ran tons of dead head fuel regulator in cars and trucks with carbs. But never for a fuel injection system with a return line. Im sure a lot of others may be wondering how to run the fuel and return line. Got it figured out thanks to nastyz.Here is a diagram on how I ran it to save money. I mounted it up front so it’s easy to adjust. I decided to keep the factory fuel inlet line that comes from the fuel pump to the tbi. I also bought a mechanical fuel gauge instead of using the liquid filled gauge that comes in the kit. Because when the liquid in the gauge gets hot from the engine heat. The gauge can be off by 20 psi. Here is a diagram I drew out and of few pics of how and where I mounted it. I won’t get my tbi back till next week. The last picture is a before pic for reference.

Re: Fastfreddys 454ss

Also found aluminum radiator for our 88 to 98 trucks. I have used these radiators on 3 builds with 180 degree thermostat and the temperature never got above 185 on 90 degree days cruising at 5 mph. Made in the USA. Champion radiator makes two sizes that have transmission and oil cooler lines ( but you can be plug them off if you have a manual trans or donít have a built in oil cooler),includes heater core line out. Also depending on which one you pick.They make standard and extended fill neck.The cc1520 with a 34Ē wide core and a 40 5/8 overall and a cc622 with a 28Ē core and 20 1/4 overall.You can save a lot of my money with free shipping buying the radiators from ebay for $200. Way better then griffins $750 just for the radiator. Champion says they price match but I didnít ask.If you buy the cc1520, champion does not make a dual 16Ē fan shroud so you have to buy the shroud off ebay for $100. If you use the cc622 with the 28Ē core you have to buy the 14Ē dual fan shroud from champion radiator ( but will need minor mods to fit) Make sure you buy a temp sensor relay kit, unless you want to run a toggle. But the dual fan kit 170 off/ 185 on needs to be bought from summit racing, jegs, ebay or amazon. Iím saving the old radiator, shroud and fan. So it could be put back to stock
