CUSTOMER BUILDS

This page shows some of the customers that have sent us pictures back of their projects.  Some are complete, some are not but we all know that perfection takes time and "life" sometimes gets in the way.  As of January 2017 we have sold over 250 engines to home mechanics, fabricators, and professional shops.  If there is personal info listed feel free to contact the owner it you have questions about their project.  Enjoy!!!

1970 C10 with full Porterbuilt suspension, Accuair air management, BD motor, Monster transmissions 4L65e and a set of 20x8 Detroit steel wheels. I've owned the truck over 20 years and finally decided to do what I've always wanted to do with it and chopped it up this winter. Should be a driver for the summer and will get painted next winter.

1956 Ford F100.  Truck should be completely painted by the end of this next week.  It has 1985 corvette front and rear suspension with the discs front and rear and brake booster works great. The brackets and crossmember for the suspension are from Flat Out Engineering.  85 power steering rack hooks up to the power steering pump on the 5.3 litre nicely. The engine mounts are 2x2 square tubing with 1/4 plate and the chevy shackles.

1989 K5 blazer with a 2006 dbw 5.3 engine. I decided to keep my existing turbo 400 transmission for the time being. The swap was very easy and straight forward with the general installation packet given when purchasing the engine.
