- Springs - They are the heavy duty police springs, so far the extra weight of the engine has been cancelled out by an "aggressive front end diet regiment" ( as you can tell...the car not me )

So far the ride height is the same as stock, but I am keeping an eye on them.

-EFI - could you write a note to my wife? [img]4.gif[/img]

With a little luck it will debut at SSHS2 for its shakedown cruise

What headers did you use?
I'm very interested in this swap because I want to slap a 454SS motor into a 91 and then burn a new chip to work with the 454...

Bambinator.....Hedman Header part number HED68610. These are the headers that I have been runnin for 3 years now on my 91 Wagon big block car. They were the best fit out of the sets I tried. They allow easy access to everything.

Glad to see someone else is interested in doin the Big Block swap. I have NEVER regretted it. These big arse heavy cars should've come with big blocks.

It would be nice to see more big block cars out there.

C ya'll at SSHS2.........DW.

Thumbs up

It's ALIVE!!!!




With a little charity from SScotto :P....I can report that the 9C1 is ALIVE!!!

Buttoned her up and fired her up in the driveway!!! now only a few hundred "minor" things (like brake lines) and she should be ready to wreak a little havoc in November!


I just wanted to thank all the great folks in GASSIT who kept me out of the ditch on this undertaking. In 9 months it went from a "glorified planter" (thanks Bud for that one) to a frame-off rat-powered bruiser that you can actually start from the driver's seat!!

A special thanks to Mrs. Hagar for reaching a new level of patience and support for my toys ..Could not have done it with out her!!!
