Made it to Hot Wheels Event in Washington. Stepside LUV needed in a hot wheels blister pack :-)

Does this mean it is driven on the street? If so, how are you liking it?

Yup sure is drive able but definitely needs a tune. I posted a drive by down my street on my previous post :-)

So if you were to do this all over again, are there any things that you would have done differently? Or are you overall very happy with the results?

Well future mods I will do is bigger front mount, Front coil overs instead of torsion bars, add traction bars of some sort, cleaner wire tuck, eliminated heater core, trans cooler relocation, lower radiator some how (I raised the hood about 0.5" to clear), redo my trans mount, but other than that it will need a tune for higher boost. Overall this build is great so far, I am greatly happy with it. Thanks Jeremy for your help and everyone else that was involved.
More to come of course like interior work (carpet, Sound deadening, audio, etc.)

I'm happy I was able to be a very small part of this!
- The traction bars I added to mine made a massive difference that was good and bad. I got them because I was getting wheel hop really badly and I was afraid I was going to rip my driveshaft apart. The traction bars solved that problem, but also made burnouts at highway speeds much harder to do, which made the truck slightly less fun. So acceleration was great, but burnouts at high speeds was basically no more.
- Sound deadening was one of the best upgrades I did to my truck. It went from a super noisy tin can, to a Cadillac with about $40 worth of stuff from home depot. It was exactly like dynamat, but waaaaay cheaper, and intended for roofs. It is sticky on the backside, and about 8-10 inches wide. I will be doing the same to future vehicles.

:lol: :lol:

I believe the stuff from Lowe's is called peel and seal. I've never used it myself but I've heard lots of good things and the general opinion seems to be that it's just as good as dynamat, and 1/4 the price.

Truck looks awesome! It's always really satisfying driving something for the first time after major work like you've done. Once you get it tuned we need to see some highway pulls and burn out vids!

Yeah Definitely will be doing some highway pulls after a tune. Will probably do a remote tune before I go to English for a dyno tune.
Burnouts is on the top of my list, just scared of axle wrap lol. I probably dont have the torque or HP to do it, but I don't know how weak these leaf springs are.
Pic for attention haha (added some brake reservoir covers mitsu style iron-ons). I have a matching Tial BOV that will be added soon, so I can get rid of the Greddy bov.

I forgot to add my Throwback Thursday and Wheel Wednesday last week Pics from my page. Since no new updates. Throwback is exactly 3 years apart.

Whoa. Huge improvement! I bet it's slightly faster now too.

Did you get the traction bars yet?

Faster yes, I can now make it to 60mph+ lol
No traction bars yet, debating on slapper bars or cal-tracs (both will be home-made). seems easier to weld some bars on the spring perches and call it done for now.

I had these, but I painted them black. They worked great. https://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/64405/10002/-1

Well Sunday my wifey and I strapped down LUVLEE to make way to English Racing down in Camas. About a 4 hour drive or so. And Monday we made in and wow all these beautiful cars everywhere. Headed in to English Racing for a dyno tuning.
Thanks to Aaron and Jeff for some pointers on my next mods but this horsepower will keep me happy as a daily driver. Thanks to my wifey Ruth for being there throughout my LUVLEE project. Video and horsepower numbers will be coming up in a few.

Small video on my old Gopro. Made 262 HP to the wheels, and perfect driveability. Thanks again to Aaron on the tuning!
