When I get closer to the install I'll have a few questions for you as this will be first auto to manual swap and I need some guidance on hooking up the electrical on the tranny. I'm going to use the vss from the trans as I'm going to install electronic gauges.

No problem. Right now I'm designing a mod to my stock 80' hood to convert it to a "cold air induction" hood without changing it's stock look.

Enjoy the pictures

The engine that will become the SC 383. It's a 80 model C20 truck block that came from an old GMC of mine.


The ps dash and center console detailed before storage


The back of the speedo and tach


A relay of some sort


Engine and lighting harness where it plugs into the fuse box


Main harness while it's still in the car


A/C and heater vacum parts


Bracket that bolts onto the steering column bracket and pedal bracket assembly


DS seat and carpet removed




DS view with the shifter removed




Main harness with fuse box

Nice start, I like the idea of storing parts in the tubs. Keeps the dust and varmints out of them.......

Great block for a 383, what heads you planning on using?

I hope you will continue to document your progress here. I enjoy following along on these builds.

Probably AFR 200cc runner and 72cc combustion chamber as I'll be running a supercharger. I'm going with a Lunati retrofit roller Voodoo cam. I'll continue documenting progress as I go along. Fixing to remove all engine wiring and start draining coolant as I'll begin pulling all the A/C and heater parts both inside and outside. Then after that the engine and transmission. I'm selling my race built Turbo 400 from the car so that that money can be used on the build.

I'll post more pictures tonight. I just boxed up the DS dash area, and am about to start cleaning up parts so that I can decided what to keep, sell, and thro away. The front and rear suspension(excluding front spindles, rear bearing support hubs, and parking brake hardware), whole drivetrain and engine harness(excluding the diff and it's parts), whole braking system, and whole exhaust system is for sale as I'm going to be putting on parts that I always wanted but never had the time or money to do so.
