Now that I found the hood, I'm looking into kooks true duel exhaust off road system for the new motor. My question is does the Lq blocks have the same exhaust ports and bolt pattern as the Ls blocks?

Part # 6501-1RHS-MC
Part # 65-9802-OX-DUAL

yes. mainly because blocks don't have exhaust provisions. the heads are all ls-based basically so yes, ls1 headers will work with an lq block with a set of heads on it.

some turbo guys use the truck exhaust manifold on ls1 engines

So yesterday with it being nearly 60* outside I decided to do last remaining odds and ends I had to do to the car to finish this front end conversion. Then I took a look at the roof on the car. I have the bubbling roof issue like many others out there and Ive seen many writes up about this. seeing as though I have bubbling accruing on both sail panel and roof I guess my only option is to cut a roof from a early 4th gen (93-97) to be exact? Are there any companies out there that sell a complete roof , 6litereater seems to only sell just a sail panel?

I had the sail panel off of Kirk's old car! Its under a bunch of scrap now, I don't know if its worth salvaging. Rotors etc have been thrown on top of it. Don't have the hard top though. But yes, either 6le and hope it fits well or cut one off of an older donor car.

So I've decided to lower this car a little more. I'm going to pick up BMR's 1"lowering a-arms and I just picked up 3 ft of 1/2 heater hose to do the heater hose mode. Just have a couple of questions.

1. What, if any needed lubricant can I use to slide the heater hose onto the rear springs?
2. Even though doing this mod is fairly simple how does the heater hose lower the car? It appears in theory that it would raise the rear end.
3. If I choose down the road to remove the heater hose from the springs is just a simple cut and remove?

Thanks guys.

You can use silicone spray or I think guys split the hose down the center and install it with that split facing downward.

You are going to remove the factory spring isolators. They are probably 1 1/2-2" thick and sit between the top of the spring and body.

Shouldn't be an issue reverting back to stock. Hold onto the factory pieces.

So the SLP SS hood finally came today and with the great amount of help I got from Adam (sweetbmxrider) thanks again man I got it home. Cleaned it up a bit


I was also able to pretty much finish the car this past weekend. All that remains is to screw in the inner wheel wells.

I decided today to make the car even lower. I just did the heater hose mod this weekend and today I purchased the 1" lowering a-arms from bmr (AA020H). My wife now refuses to ride in both cars being that she's pregnant haha

hey guys after a solid year of not doing anything to my cars mainly because of having a newborn baby girl, I'm back. I ordered up a ford 9" rear from quick performance for now just the rear end. I have not ordered the center section as of yet. After reading some posts it looks like a yukon center with wavetrack 4:11 gears is whats next. I will also be pulling out the the gas tank,trans, and motor as well by the end of the month. painting the under side of car metallic silver. I also need to decide if I want to keep my 6.0 lq4 block or purchase a new lsx block seeing as though this build will have boost to it. I dont know if my goal is attainable though....that being a 700 rwhp street/strip car on pump gas.

Shouldn't be an issue hitting that power level. Why would you think otherwise?

Good to see you are still at it, Paul. I am going to be selling my 9 inch as soon as I have time to pull it. Its a complete bolt in setup with lt1 brakes on it, no abs. Tru track in the center section, 31 spline axles, 3.73's, arp studs etc. Not exactly what you are wanting but figured I'd let you know. I'll be asking $2k for it with a stock aluminum drive shaft and the drag bar on it. Hope life is good as a dad!

I'm thinking my boost levels will need to be in the low teens and atleast 9.5:1 to 10:1 compression which may take me out of pump gas.

Hey man you seeing off all your equipment? Did you sell the car? Life has been crazy busy but loving every minute of it. My daughter keeps me on the move. That rear sounds interesting I may have to stop buy and take a look at it.

Are you adverse to running methanol injection? I still think you won't have trouble hitting your goal with pump gas and the right combo (especially on the LS platform). LTb1ow is nearly at 700rwhp on a mustang dyno with a turbo LT1, pump gas with no meth at around 15-16lbs of boost.
