    Absolute Top Speed of the SC. What can it do?

    Yeah, with the 460 I don’t think HP will be a problem. However, 6K rpm will definitely be in the yellow as it will not be a high rpm performance build. More for cruising around and those summer fair weather hiway runs. 2 plane intake for smooth bottom end.

    Absolute Top Speed of the SC. What can it do?

    Huh. Anyone run factory rear gears (2.73) behind a T56? Unfortunately, I don’t know anywhere up here that it would be 1) safe to run at those speeds 2) Troopers here have no qualms about laying spike strips. Lots of lllooooonnnnnggg hiways, but Motorola gets a SAT boost link. Damn, that’s...

When I rebuilt the brake system on my wife’s H2 after a braking failure (one cracked front line, both rear line were weeping bad). In...

    T56 swap discussion/questions

    I also went with the now obsolete McLeod bell and 1/2” spacer. Also had bronze sleeve made for the crank hub to fit the GM pilot bearing (using an LS1 T56). Despite having an LS1 input & output, the clutch adapter (trans front plate) turned out to be a Viper/Camaro Retrofit. it clocked the slave...

    Super charger top removal

    Do the spark plugs from under the car. Use the red anaerobic sealer for the top. do not RTV. Making a ‘spanner’ is not hard, cut a hardened piece of 1/4” steel in a matching arc with a tab at the end of the arc. Then cut a 3/8 or 1/2” square (for breaker bar) in the other end.

    DIY Supercharger Plenum Nut Spanner Wrench Files

    Get a spanner wrench like they use on fire hoses and grind the hook to fit the grooves. That’s what I have. We used the same style in the shipyard for waterside electrical connector ‘nuts’, both types have a hinge in the middle for use on a certain size range. Just for those that don’t have...

    Finally pulled one of the heads off! So I have questions:

    DON’T reuse your head bolts! That are 1 time use. With the stud kit it’s all good. When I blew the left side gasket, i had to replace it twice! This was before I got the studs, so that a couple of sets for the whole job because I removed both heads and cleaned up. Had to take them to have them...
