Finally got to work on the chevette. I cut out the old floor, and started putting the rear suspension in. I put the enging in last night to mock it all up for mounts. The bad news is that the a/c will not fit in the stock location, so it will have to be moved or deleted from the build. i made an idler out of the power steering pump by removing the pump sliders inside, filled the pump with Moble one and capped off the outlet and vented the inlet.
Long time since my last update, Changed my mind on the Rover v8, It was going to cost more than it was worth. so i went with my second choice an LS1 with an automatic, I bought it complete with the computer, and i even bought the HP tuners program and cables so i could set it up the way I want. Engine and trans are out of a 2002 TA with 54,000miles on them. $3700.00 delivered I even bought the dash cluster fron the car so i could use it in the chevette. The first pic is the donor car, OUCH! the second and third are the engine trans combo.
