We've almost got enough stuff to build it collected up. Now looking for a suitable candidate for Road Racing project!

Progress? What's that? Seriously, my car has been sidelined forever. I am now back to working on it. As stated earlier, I sold off all of my Turbo Buick stuff and ended up with two LSx motors (one true aluminum 5.7 LS1 from a Camaro and one iron block 5.3 from a Silverado. My plan is to run all the truck externals including the drive-by-wire throttle body and truck intake on the aluminum motor creating essentially an aluminum 5.7 truck motor. I've also bought a Z06 cam for it. I've also collected up a very low mileage truck harness to use and the DBW throttle pedal.

Because my work space is so limited at home, last weekend we took the body off the chassis and stored it in a friends LARGE X HUGE shop (I'm so jealous). We then took the rolling chassis back to my house so I could work on it. I'll update as I progress....

cobalt327 Hows about "Iceman, Inc."? Maybe w/a mural of a big-A polar bear.

Or, "Iceman's Hot Rods, Unlimited".

Got lotsa room to work with, in any event!

DoubleVision I`m of no help either but I do have to say thats a awesome truck Iceman. It looks like a old ice delivery truck or is that where your name came from? If not it sure does fit. It would be cool after painting and restoration to have a false ice company`s name and logo painted on the side. Something like "Artic Andy`s Ice Delivery" or "Eskimo Ed`s" Just random thoughts.

The carb setup was easy and runs great. I bought the motor out of a wrecked GTO and they cut the wiring harness and lost the cpu so instead of buying all that stuff I just spent 650 bucks and bought the carb kit.

cobalt327 FWIW the May, 2009 Car Craft has an article on the "Complete Chevy LS accessory drive and pulley swap guide".

It's 6 pages and includes OEM part numbers- it isn't just an advert for March pulleys, it goes into how to do things using OEM/junk yard-sourced parts.

IMO, just the info on alternator interchange and power steering pump pulleys would be worth the price.

Stovebolter Yes. Looks great. My compliments Tubbed! How are you liking the carb set up?

My 36 is sitting on the sidelines so I can get my son's 65 Elky going. I just started ordering parts again yesterday for the 36. I still need the LS2 water pump. But I do have the modified fuel injection wiring harness back. Going to get started mocking up the headers soon. Then hopefully I can at least get it started......then pull for a good cleaning and paint the frame.

How's your progress going Sinister?

SinistrV6 Thanks! Your pics helped a lot! Good lookin' car! My exhaust will take up more room than yours but I think it'll work.

Tubbed71 The stock GTO pan was 1 3/4 lower than that
05-07-2009 09:11 PM
Tubbed71 Yeah thats the one, the pic isn't that great but it's all I had left.
05-07-2009 09:09 PM
SinistrV6 Oops, posted too soon. I think I see the "batwings" in that bottom pic.

SinistrV6 Thanks for the pics. I can't see the "wings" on that pan; you sure it's a C5 Corvette LS1 pan? It would look like this:

Tubbed71 Here are a couple, I also got a better pic of the motor mount.
