    Default Project Foxbody Coupe lt1 396 swap

    I'm moving everything over here where it should be! As I get better navigating the site over I'll be more engaged or try too lol... What started out as a 93 Trans Am 396 build has taken a few unexpected turns and now it's a 89 Foxbody Coupe Gen2 Lt1 396ci swap build...
    Callies DragonSlayer crank
    Callies Comstar Rods
    JE/SRP forged dished pistons
    AFR 220cc heads
    Super Victor efi intake
    Aje Kmember with coilover conversion
    Torqhead 24x full kit
    TH350 TCI 3600 N2O stall
    Nitrous Express 75shot shark nozzle kit (came with the 93 TA)
    Rear 8.8 with 4.30 gears and full spool, which will probably swapped for 3.73 later
    Planning to add a 76mm turbo later so I haven't bought headers yet.... I'm swapping the 93 engine over to 95 stuff to use the torqhead kit... Heads should arrive in a few more days then they're off to Lloyd Elliot as money permits.... So between now and then I have to determine if I'm just going to run N20 or just continue the build towards a turbo setup.... Decisions decisions.... Lol

    Looks good. Quick question...Why go with torque head when your able to run a regular dizzy with that intake and go with a stand alone for fuel?

    When I bought the torqhead kit I had a regular lt1 ported intake and stock ported casting heads and it was going in a 93 Trans Am and I was/am planning on swapping the 93 timing cover to a 95, and at that time I wasn't really aware of other stand alone fuel/ignition systems so when the torqhead 24x kit came available I thought it would be a good idea because of being easier to get tuned because of the Ls 411 pcm
    So this build has just kinda evolved to what it is today... Lol

    Finally found a good set of used sbc swap Dynotech 1 3/4 stepped to 1 7/8 for my Foxbody! $200 plus $40.00 shipping, guy said approximately 500 miles ran on these before he pulles the engine out to do a lsx turbo build on it... so I jumped all over this deal ! Lol..... Things just move slowly so I'll be back asap... Im saving up for 4Bolt splayed main caps installation now so the short block is coming back apart lol...

    You can sell off the cam sensor the 24x stuff uses and get a vortec dizzy for cam sensing.

    Also, send the intake to Lloyd for him to port it nicely to match the heads.
    Correlation does not imply causation.

    Im going to stick with the torqhead 24x full kit since I already have it and a stand alone wiring harnesses.... Next up is having the 4 bolt splayed main caps installed then the heads and intake will be shipped off to Lloyd Elliot to be freshen up and intake ported to match like you mentioned and a custom grind cam for my setup then I'll start assembly on the car with the AJE-Kmember and coilover conversion as the car is currently sitting on blocks with nothing under it lol... Once its back to roller status I'll set the engine in and start that process.
