Battery in the back?

Are you going to single stage paint?

Engine bay is looking good. My vote is satin....but not body color.

Its not cheap for the supercharger setup all in I think I am about $3,500 just for the blower and all accessories to run it.

You would think I would have a better engine bay shot, but here is what I have handy......wish I had painted the firewall the same satin body color that I did the core support and inner fenders in.

No, I think I am just going to go with a smaller battery in the factory location, maybe laid down or pushed up close to the inner fender. Some things I have learned with driving things hard and reliability. Easy to get to means easy to work on and troubleshoot. This is not going to be a show car.

From a weight standpoint, I would not mind moving it to the rear, but a small Odyssey is pretty minimal weight wise. Ill likely have to add ballast to the car to get it up to minimum optima weight anyways.

Yes. I have always liked the way the single stage paint looks and functions on these cars and I see no reason to change it.

I managed to get the rest of the metal work done. My buddy used to work at a place where they did a lot of lazer work and he would grab some of the fall pieces from the table and put them in a bin for me. Comes in super handy when you are trying to weld up holes =)

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...psbd9fjotw.jpg

I am thinking about farming out the paint work on this as I am really not setup to paint at the new place at all.

I need to get on pulling the engine from the van and getting it ready to drop in as parts are here waiting.

Happy Monday!!

Dig the progress pic of the engine compartment!

slow240 04-23-2018 07:24 PM

My buddy did an lm7 in his 242 and he hid his tiny battery inside the passenger fender with jumper lugs in the bay for ease of jump starting. Let me see if I can find a picture

LSA factory fuel injectors and LS9 fuel rails, this will put the fuel connections near the brake booster.

No this is not the lightest setup, no its not a real LSA, yes its a less expensive way to get good power from the 6.0 and lot of people have figured this LSA supercharger on a 6.0 and 5.3 swap out. Power should be plenty north of 500 to the wheels with this setup and all GM reliability. Ill be running the factory ECU and a custom harness for this setup.

Cool, thanks for the explanation. Seems like a good homebrew alternative and cost effective for 500+hp. Can't wait to check it out!

Engine bay is looking nice. Satin beige would be a clean look in a 240 if your F100 is any indication. What engine management did you use for the Coyote swap?

M.H. Yount 04-24-2018 08:26 AM

If you haven't already obtained the Hooker cast units, you might want to take a look at Speedway Motors cast stainless Tru-Ram units. Flow characteristics (3" collector vs. 2.25", among other things) are superior to the Hooker unit which should help with your boosted application. And I found the exit location much easier to work with when fabbing the head pipes. fwiw https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Tru-R...iABEgKSyfD_BwE

As we said when planning the bachelor party, if you've already got the Hookers, then party on!

Second guessing my decision to take on this big of a project again though...

I seriously thought about sinking a box in there, but found a pretty cool little mount for a small Odyssey Battery that should fit with room for the air filter over there still.

Thank you, I am pretty stoked to check it out also, have a buddy running one and he is hitting the dyno this week, but its a 5.3. I think I am going to go with Gloss so its easy to paint the outside. I really like the satin but hope the bay turns out well enough to look good in gloss.

Ran the Ford Racing coyote control pack with the ford computer. Zero issues with it.

That last line is awesome........I already have the hookers so party on. Those Speedway ones look really nice, wish I had seen them before ordering mine. Ill definately keep them in mind if the hookers dont work out =)

Thanks man, kind of fun. Wish parts were easier to come by these days, seems like 240's are all gone now.

Had a few days home this weekend so got to work on the engine bay last night and kept going this morning.

Here we go...big box of supplies.

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...psizkg5hgo.jpg

Slinging mud, going for a cleaner than stock look but not all super smoothed out.

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...psgw4zmrki.jpg

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3ajzdcof.jpg

About done with several rounds of body filler and sanding. My arms and fingers hurt.

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...psxe3v181d.jpg

Getting ready to shoot some high build Primer Sealer

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...psqh0tqdg6.jpg

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...psgtyiu0wy.jpg

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...pscodg0cgz.jpg

Three coats of Evercoat Super Build primer

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...ps6dc0u0xr.jpg

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...psnyfa2sty.jpg

A few hours of letting it dry and got to work with even more sanding.....320 seemed to perform the best here and I have one half of the bay done, be back on sanding the other side tomorrow.

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...pswu8ulh2o.jpg

Was a busy ass day, and I am tired. One bad thing about the move is I dont know anyone down here so nobody to stop by and check out what I am doing or lend a hand when I need it. Rolling solo on this entire thing so far.

Hope to have it in color by mid week.

More parts should show up in the next few days.

Did make some progress on parts. Picked up some R front calipers and front and rear Brembo rotors as well as some killer adapters from STS Machining.

Wish I could get some good suspension parts coming this way.

Seems everyone state side is out of some good quality adjustable coilovers.

Maybe some more progress this week.

doucheNozzle 04-29-2018 06:50 AM

Ben and Josh don’t have anything?

slow240 04-30-2018 07:04 AM

Ben has those baller JRZ rsone coilovers.

Question on the Ford project: do you know the dimensions of the Coyote motor? I've been tossing around a non-Volvo project idea for awhile involving that motor, but i"m not sure it will fit. The biggest concern is the overall width.

Dammit 04-30-2018 08:56 AM

Would this car be legal in California? This isn't a wholly academic question, but one motivated by a degree of self interest (cf. the vulture query earlier in this thread).

Mueller 04-30-2018 04:21 PM

Welcome back, that truck is nice.... looking forward to the new Volvo build.

1975 and older is smog free, anything else would need to be under the table or within the states guidelines.

M.H. Yount 04-30-2018 09:58 PM

...all of that, if you wanna register it for the street. If this is a track rat....

122power 05-01-2018 12:04 PM

Diesel title works as well. Nice work Sean! And yeah the 240's are not around as much, even down here.

All out of stock. 3 to 4 week lead time, QSRC is a 10 week lead time. This is likely the route I will end up going though.

Its massive. I had a dimensional chart of both engines at one point but its long gone. I can tel you at the widest point it is 6.5" wider than an LS and that is essentially the tip of the head at the valve cover.

Thanks!! I am shocked at just how hard it is to find parts for these things now. I have a couple big items I need and am having a tough time finding.

172 paint code driver and passenger fender would be awesome
Good Uncracked dash- I am willing to pay for this, halfway tempted to try and order a new one.
Any brown interior pieces would be great, door handles, carpet, dash, rear deck or seatbelt covers.

Bunch of parts should show up this week on it and I am pulling the donor motor this weekend, maybe make some progress in the next couple weeks, like engine assembled and in the car.

I'm going to be in Newberg in June for a Porsche 914 event, would love to see your truck in person. (just mapped it out, you are 8 hours away, ouch)

Now I want to redo my engine compartment after seeing your progress...damn it!

Looks great so far, excited to watch the progress!

Never too late to redo it, I had the engine out in less than a day :-P

I am only about an hour or so from Newberg, hit me up if you want to get together.

I figured most people were not on dial up anymore :). I just link pics from my photobucket account like I have done on all my other build threads. Not sure how to resize them actually.

Thanks man, are you from UJoint for real? You guys have some killer stuff I cut my teeth in offroading, just finished building an 05 ram with a 700hp 426 hemi, one tons and 40" tires.


Got this bitch loaded up and off to the painters this morning. Super high end hot rod shop is helping me out with it.

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/...psividzf8e.jpg

They are turning it around quick should have it back in just a few days as all the prep was done for them.

Supercharger showed up at FedEx yesterday, will pick up today. Parts are piling up now!!!
