For this build i will be using the LSX 376, with just south of 1,000hp with minimal boost, & a 2yr warranty this will be a good starting point. These have made well over the 1,000hp mark so it will be fun to see what it can do.

The gas filler has been filled in, and some guys just mount the new filler in the trunk. I didnt want to open my trunk to add fuel so i made a motorized tail light to access my new filler location. check out the link below. More info on the Facebook post.

Have had some questions about my ride height & crossmember. First image is a rolling height about 1" from laying frame. The pictured Progressive Automotive crossmember has been built to be set up for my desired ride height (4" from ground to rocker) & uses the corvette c-4 control arms & spindles. It uses the Ridetech suspension Shockwaves, Accuair valve body, & controlled by Ridecontroler to operate between laying frame, ride height, & speed bumps.

The rear- I narrowed the frame 5" to tuck the 20x10 Intro Wheels wrapped in 285/30/ZR20 Falken Tire , a step notch to gives the Currie Enterprises 9+ rear end room to move through the travel via the RideTech triangulated 4-link & Shockwaves, the Shockwaves have an adjustable rebound to help further dial in the suspension. Air is supplied by 2 AccuAir Suspension tanks mounted under the car, & uses the Accuair valve body & is controlled with my phone using the RideController unit.

James -

More pics, yo. Us newbies need more inspirational and reference material from you old hands.

How did you figure out what you wanted your ride height to be? I saw the picture of the Rally rim on your website...did you just lower the body/frame over that wheel until you had it low enough? I'm strongly leaning towards the PA crossmember like you used and I want to research this project to death before I start cutting anything up.

Also curious about your 4 link setup in the rear.

Thanks,
Nate

1954 2 door - Grandpa's Blue Goose

Plans:
LSx, 4L60E, newer rear axle
Upgraded suspension - Meyer IFS, Vette-based?
Minimal body mods - fill a few seams, stiffen frame - AME style center section, etc.

Nate,
Sorry for the late response. I will have new progress pics up in the next couple of weeks.
I determined my ride height just by dropping it till i liked how it looked and would still clear most road obstacles then built my suspension around that height. The Progressive Automotive cross member was also built around my desired ride height so as to maximize my suspension performance.
The 4link is a RideTech unit.
Regards, James

A modern twist on this old car as far as interior and control/management systems. This will have all of the amenities of a new car wrapped up in a 54 body.

This is the rendering of my 54 engine bay using a twin turbo LSX376 set up. The illustration shows some parts in chrome but it will all be black.

There are so many ways to control our modern features on vehicles. Trunk pop, door pop, accessory lighting, remote start, air suspension, and so many more. Why not combine all of those features into the one device that we all have on hand, our phone. The control system can be either switches or buttons and can all be labeled to suit your needs.

Thank you. The modern interior really turns some off but I'm shooting for a simple exterior look with all of the amenities of a modern car. I drive my cars so want to roll in comfort.
