Made what should ne y last purchase from fcpgroton, among the things is a 940 radiator, slightly longer than my 740 core. Purchased an even from kevbot that works fantastic. Need to place one more order through summit racing and buy the controller for the 4l60e and that should be it. I'm optimistic that I should at least be able to see if the car has spark and fuel this weekend. I'm fairly confident that the 10+ hours wiring will work out well. Fingers crossed

This thing is AWESOME!

My brother had a 74 Nova, fire engine red that he drove all through high school. I then took it to college and on the way back to Louisiana the oil pump died, amazingly he made it all the way back (since the engine was hot apparently) but when he tried to start it the next day, it was seized sold. He had it bored 40 over and it used to run neck and neck with my 2nd gen RX7. If only I knew then what I know now, I would have reccomended a redblock!

Oh, and this was my first thought when I saw this build....

That was definately quite something, i chuckled a bit at the video of the burn out. definately cool, i like that he swapped out the front end for a 72 look, that's what i'm going to do, the 73 is too flat.

Yea, my brother always wanted to swap to the earlier front end, but he ended up selling it before he got around to it

as far as plates, what about ...

8V Nova
Nova Ti
Volva

Slightly less, I believe the v8 was rated at 230hp and 260tq, I ran 205/235 to the wheels when it was in the 740

Looks like a mess but I have starter signal and signal to the fuel pump and coil, going to try for spark tomorrow and also for injector pulse, if I have that I'm golden and this project will be nearing the home stretch.
Took another couple hours on the wiring, figuring the pin outs to the fuel and spark computers to get the fuel pump and radio suppression relay to work, ground issue.

You've got to take this... Volnova?... to car shows and so forth once it's streetable. I love the idea, and it's coming together well already. It'll definitely confuse some people.

2316cc = 141.33 cubic inches. However, the Vega's troublesome OHC four was a 140-cube engine - still a 2.3, but 2287cc according to Wikipedia - nearly identical to my old Saab's 2290cc B234i, incidentally. Wouldn't want to confuse it with either of those.

So equal then. 205 at the wheels is about 230-240 at the crank. You'll have more now!

Sweet build. I want to put a 16v redblock in the E36.

Computer upon trigger turns fuel pump and coil on, pretty strong feeling that the wiring is done right, going to try and finish up the valve cover and get the parts out to powder coat then its final assembly for the most part, hoping it will fire up and run well.

After looking at the break pedal i will take a guess that this car really only has 39000 miles on it, i would think if it reset that the pedal would be worn through.















And now for more wiring, my favorite. Led 6 gauge panel with high neam and turn indicators

I have thought about the signal but not really sure how to adapt it to the chevy rear end, sounds like it will work without it but will not cut fuel under decel. From what i read the signal tells the speedo and then that signal is converted to talk to the computer.
Any insight would be great

Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure the speed signal helps with idle control too. I don't have a speed signal, and often times my idle is at about 1500 when I shift into park after a drive.
