Still have it, right? For parts?
What the hell happen?!
yeah for sure. I’m sure someone will want parts. How many miles? Could get some money out of that LS
Of course I do. The entire drivetrain is probably gonna get swapped into my '83 if I don't blow the motor in the Yukon *knocks on wood*
check out the build thread for the Tahoe and you'll see what happened. 193k miles and I'm planning on keeping the LS actually to swap into my square body
Sorry for the long hiatus guys! Had a lot going on in the office, got married on March 14 to the love of my life, and now here we are!
Guess who is getting a new transmission in the Hoe? THIS GUY! 4L80e with billet internals, billet torque converter with 2500-2700 (what do you guys think of that stall? 35” tires and 3.73), built to handle over 1000 lb ft TQ. Should be going in within the next month!
Also converting back to 4x4, doing the pump rub mod on the transfer case, having all of the electrical gone through, and possibly dyno tuned right after.
Wife even said, “after it’s all back up and running, might as well get it painted!” See, I knew I married her for a reason!
Congratulations! You converted it to 2wd?
It was 2WD because the 4L80e was a 2WD transmission, and I didn’t have time, nor the money, to convert that transmission to 4WD.
Congratulations!, and welcome back! Sounds like a beefy trans! What brand are you going with?
Congratulations Nathan! I knew she was a keeper when she was working on your truck. Did y'all meet over here or over there?
There’s a local guy here called Total Transmission Supply. Guy seems to know what he’s doing! I’ll upload the specs in another post.
Hahaha right?! We met in Fort Myers almost 5 years ago. Met in Centennial Park, walked down to have sushi, and the rest is history now.
