Bringing it back up from the dead...

Changed directions with the build guys.

Decided that the 1.8l eaton was ting going to be enough blower to satisfy me and the 2v heads didn't seem to appealing anymore so I picked up a set of 4 valve lincoln navigator heads.



I got rid of my T.E.A. stgIII 2v Romeo heads and got a 6-71 blower.



It's a 6-71 large bore, figured it would be plenty of blower for a small block 331ci motor.



Plans are to adaptor the 6-71 on top of the 5.4 4vlave heads...

Back up.

So the builds changed up a good bit. Life happens and I'm A.D.D. Like crazy so it's gone a different coarse.

I've changed directions from a '02 Lightning drivetrain to a '00 Lincoln Navigator 5.4 4valve with a 6-71 large bore GM blower.

This is the wiring from an '00 Lincoln Navigator, computer and harnesses... Along with the front timing cover and valve covers that are needed.



Cleaned up the valve covers real good and decided to give them a coat of paint.



And paint action



Decided ford GT blue was fitting for them. Also I've decided that the 4 valve heads are going to keep my coils much dryer than what it would have been 2v in the open.

Looks like I'm going to get a tubing bender, I was going to let a friend do some tube work for me, but it seems he's too busy, so I guess I'll be getting a JD2 bender in the near future...

I ended up picking up some motor plates for a mod motor

Figured I'd give you a comparison of a stock Lightning/termi blower, beside a 6-71



A good bit of difference

The stock Lightning/'03-'04 cobra blower is a 1.8L blower some 4 bangers aren't even that big... This 6-71 is pretty damn big!

Figured I should open it up like I'm doing every other part of the build, any thing that can slow airflow was removed and is being ported...

Sooo

Strength ribs had to go



Since this isn't sitting on its side and being used as an exhaust they're not needed for integrity



Also I know this is about the same as taking a shit before a ride, but I dropped a little bit of weight. Lol



And next for the exit side of things

Alright guys, don't grill me too hard, but I tried to accomplish a task that was to large for my small garage and angle grinder. Haha

I need some more tools for the garage.

I gathered up a few brake items for the rig, I'm going to run wheel brakes, and I Have decided to run a pinion brake as a parking brake. If I don't X the idea all together... ( if I push through my wheel brakes, they'll get yanked for my pinion brakes)

Patooyee was grateful enough to cut me some brake adapters to mount rotors to my rear hubs... It's a real Close design to his pinion brake the cuts. He was talking the idea down for the size tire I'm going to run (53's) with the size dia. Rotor I ended up going with 12.19... A 14" rotor would be a better match for the size tire.

Only plus I have working with me, are they are a billet 6 piston caliper to keep down on caliper flex (4 piston superlite) and to have a better bite. The 47 vane make them a heavier rotor, but they'll cool better if I hit them a lot.




Going to safety wire them too







Also got my RH lugs in.

I know pirate isn't much for body lifts, so I'm proud to anounce I'm taking my 3" Performance Accesory BL off, in place of a 2" billet aluminum JC Customs BL

I gave him a few measurements and a picture of my composit puck, and he had mine cut that same night... Pretty cool. I downer is they're a little bit heavier.



So I had him polish it a little and throw his logo on it.



He's got a new CNC machine and is down to work with me on new stuff, so the 4x4 is going to start having Rockwell pieces cut. Starting with this side inspection cover plate. I was messing around in the garage and cut this out of some scrap I had laying around... (Downfall is it's 3/8" thick and heavier/uglier than what he can do)

My ugliness



A little bit of grinder action.

Ordered a sheet of dark lexan for the rear glass to give it a tinted look.

Tracing it out.



I cut it out of cardboard, but I don't remember using it as the template, I think I traced straight from the window.



Both sides cut out, plans are to keep the center glass.



Last, are my "steering column trim" pieces lol, well they're clearly not for a fire wall or a hot rod, haha...

Wasn't impressed with the last ones I cut, so I found some scrap 1/8th aluminum and cut out a few inspection plates for my rockwells now I'll be dropping a smidgen of weight on the heavy bastards.



It was about to much for my old school band saw I was using



I ended up scoring it for free, and think it's a wood citing bandsaw, but I ordered a metal cutting blade



Last pic, they didn't come out too bad.

Back in its mall crawler former glory days, I had a cut through with 4) 10" speakers (was going to do 8) but I lost interest... Fast forward 10yrs and I've lost interest in all that gay shit and actually want to hit some holes hard with a fully functional 4x4...

So I plated up the back of the cab with the tool box lid I previously posted.



Inside view



Back seat still sits over



All bolted up, also ended up using aluminum bolts. Had these from a previous project, figured they'd work out pretty good.

I have a few poser shots, but it's bringing the build closer to the end.



Got FOA 18" coilovers, still need the springs and 2 need to be rebuilt, I'll probably go through all of them.

Also got the rest of my 4-link rod ends, jam nuts, and tube adaptors...



Also finally picked up a bed liner to act as the bed on the truck. Basically a light weight bed with tube work underneath it, to hold a little bit of weight (battery, fuel cell, tool box...



While I have the bed sides bolt to the frame work to look as though the beds complete. This is just one side propped up.



Also finally took some pieces off the chunk of the Rockwell to get cut by my guy. Pretty excited to see the outcome...



Not much weight, but it all adds up... Little Rockwell diet.

I'm very interested to see how this truck turns out. I am doing a very similar build with the exact same truck. Only difference is mine will be on Dana 60's. Keep trucking man

A little bit of billet aluminum poser porn...



We're reworking the pinion delete caps, to eliminate one less spot for oil to leak, and to keep mud from seeping in. And the large and small bearing pieces are being cut.

Dropping weight were I can.

Cutting the small bearing pinion off




That end piece was 1lb




All in all I'm going to be able to loose all this rotating mass



Pinion delete cap



Doing a little test fitting with the bling bling...

Worked on the back glass a little bit more.





Steering column piece for my down bars



Almost there, ended up scoring this window surround for free.
