DIY V8 build old school style
Well after months of planning and aquiring parts i started the project
My V8 conversion using a mixture of old school power and new technology.
Plan : pull the LE5 and drop a carbureted 350 V8 with 700r4 manual shifting capability automatic.
I wanted to control the engine and bolt ons with new circuits and let the existing computer control the inside of the car as well as lighting systems and safety features
The car is almost complete just working on small issues while I drive it to work in the day time.
The original time limit was 9 days to do the conversion but after some delays it has taken longer than anticipated but defintely worth the wait when it fired up
I dont want any flaming or negative comments cluttering this thread! I built it the way i wanted it.
