I finally took the time to get some pictures of my new project. I am installing a 2013 5.7 Hemi and A580 Trans. It already has a later 8 3/4 rear with 323 gears. This is a very solid car and shouldn't take a long time to build. My only problem is I have become so busy repairing daily drivers that the build time suffers. But, cash is king. Sorry I don't have any better pictures of the roller.

Looks good Don... What are your plans for the monster hole in the center of the dash ??? I suspect you will be using the stock gauge cluster & also retaining the glove box the size of the trunk in my Olds ..... Laughing

Well I am thinking about using it for air conditioning outlets. We will see. Looks like I will have to build my own evaporator unit nothing will fit the small space I have.

I really like those suburbans. The work you've done so far is right up to par for you. It's going to be a nice car. Keep us posted on your progress. Very Happy

I was noticing the big firewall recess as well, looks to me this is partly because it's a small car. Should really scoot.

So I can use the stock front dress. It ended up being a 10" set back. Still plenty of room inside and room up front for a radiator and fan.

Does the intake tube say ACME? Did you buy this from someone named Wiley E. Coyote?

That's as good a reason as any. You'll have great front/rear weight distribution, so that's a plus.

Seats are out of a Chevy HHR. The harness is from Hot Wire Auto in Arkansas.
2009 Charger ECU, forward control module, ABS controller, A580 trans control module and a Charger shifter.

Having a passenger seat that folds flat, like yours, is really nice in a 2dr wagon. I'm putting Vibe seats in my Rambler wagon that do the same thing. The HHR back seat probably folds flat and fits pretty well too, eh? I never sat in an HHR but I have a vibe and like the seats so I used them.

I wish I had your ambition Don. The project is looking good. Very Happy

The rear seats in my HHR do fold flat.
