I pounded the body up a bit to get the atlas to sit here. It's about 1" below the frame rail, the transmission is about 2" below the frame rail. Clocking the atlas flat is a double edged sword. It doesn't do much for me clearance wise, since the trans is the low point. It would make the front output yoke clear the crossmember, but, if I go too high, then the trans slave cylinder gets closer to inline between the output and the pinion. Where it's at here seems to be a good compromise between everything. It needs a notch in the x-member, but looks like there's a good bit of uptravel before the front shaft would hit the slave. Plus, to go any flatter I'd have to cut the tub, and while I'm not opposed to it, there's not really much reason to.

Here's the front output notch.





It's 2"x2" 1/4 wall, and at the notch it's only 1". But I plated the top. And the 2 mounting holes for the tranny are sleeved with a nice thick piece of 1/2" ID.



Then took it all out, burned everything in and rattle canned it.

Do you ever do any local wheeling? Do you know "dead mans" up off yellow springs road by great valley high school? That is primarily where I go, just wondering if you know of any other spots.

I like what you did with the tj dash board, havent seen it before but i follow the yjs mostly. Im another local malvern guy, i go to great valley hs. In the pictures are you back in the woods on the old train tracks? I take my quad back there but dont really see anywhere to get in with a jeep or that one would really fit well? Impressive build so far! Good luck on the rest!

Nope, never heard of that one.

I followed this parts list:
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/chevy...-adapters.html
Rather than buy the Advance Adapters flywheel/clutch combo.
Worked great, saved me damn near $400.





Hopefully it's in, and not coming back out at this point.





I had the Envoy stock headers, C5 vette headers, and a pair of Pacesetter. The C5 headers were not working at all with the AA motor mounts.
The Envoy headers looked great, and might be a contender for a lot of you automatic guys, but won't work with the slave cylinder on the 465
The Pacesetter headers worked with a dent in the cylinder 1 tube, and a few whacks to the passenger side firewall.

Here's my new problem.
The firebird oil pan has no dipstick hole, their dipstick is through the block.
The Envoy block has no dipstick hole, their dipstick is through the pan.
So, I have a block with no hole, and a pan with no hole.
Nowhere to stick my dipstick.

Most likely I'll just run a dummy light from the pan mounted oil level sensor and pretend I'm in a new BMW with no dipstick.

Is there a boss on the block that's not drilled for the dipstick? If so you can buy a jig to drill it out like they do on the LS7 wet sump conversions.

Yep, exactly like that. I guess some are drilled and plugged at the factory... well not mine.
I'm moving forward with other necessary things, while I decide if I want to pull the pan, pull that header, and try to squeeze a drill down in through there.

Atlas is mounted, floor is cut, twin sticks are in.
Alternator & power steering pump are in.
Cable throttle is hooked up to the cruise control nub on the throttle body, works for now.
Wiring continues...

Boring.

the whole motor is plugged in, except for the MAF which I need an intake for first.

Alligator c*ck. Everywhere!
Made killer progress yesterday, left the shop a little past 10.

There's a short list of wiring left:
MAF sensor (forgot I had unpinned it, a little bit of loom has to come off)
Starter relay (all wiring is at the PDC, just needs tied up)
Fuel Pump relay (all wiring is at the PDC, just needs tied up)
ASD Relay, I just need to make sure it's not going to screw me, so I need to read up on it a bit.
Gauges (8 wires pulled into under dash)
Big 3 upgrade
Grounds





More alligator d*ck hanging out of the cabin. Need to clean my **** up before I get evicted for being a slob/hoarder...

Did you have schematics to go by for the wiring? Or how did you figure that out?
