This is worse than an Eagle reveal thread

My next new vehicle will have a 10 release party to annoy you guys…

Old school defrost, not sure why but that hood is confusing. LS swapped F-Body of some kind?

Still need to get title transferred and plates for it, but I took her for a quick rip down North Ave yesterday and she's a runner!

I think that’s an ice box in the hatch area…. So my guess large pro charger? F1?

Looks fast. Widebodied base?

Edit: treed

I know the A-pillars are black but it's not Chris' old car is it?

Nope, not Chris' old car. Chris I think had a YSI supercharger on that car. Hoping to get the car out to a Thursday night in the upcoming weeks or a Sat/Sun cars & coffee.

Really just bought the car to cruise it and have some fun with it while I'm finishing the Chevelle. It'll probably be around for a year or two until it goes to its new home.

Pic for attention but go figure… running into issues with the 6L80E. I kind of expected it to be honest though, they’re so temperamental.

Went for a drive on Sunday, about 30 minutes. Ambient temps were 80-85 degrees, and trans temps got up to about 230 and the car was not happy at all. Threw a check engine light which I’m assuming is for the 6L80E.

I’m going to have to find a way to get some better cooling to the transmission, it’s already got an external cooler, but I’ll need to explore options for relocating it to a spot with better airflow.

Bought HP Tuners again today, should be here tomorrow so I can start looking at the tuneup. More to come with my findings over the next few days.

Tossing around ideas, but if I can’t fix the cooling issues I may think about doing a 4L swap from RPM and never have to worry about the trans again.
