What's the plan?
With $14,900.00 in parts and labor after car purchase, there is ample funding to turn this Nova into our "Bad Boy." Project to date plans include:
1. Removal of current 327 and installation of a 383 or 415 stroker and Turbo 350 transmission. Estimated cost of $6,500.002.
2.Replace current brake system for 4-wheel disc. Estimated cost $4,500.003.
3. Replace current front suspension with Tubular control arms and related handling improvements. Estimated cost of $2,500.004.
4. 17 inch wheel and tire package. Estimated cost of $1,200.005.
5. Labor is estimated at $3,000.00. This amount will need to be retrieved through sales on eBay Motor of engine/ transmission and current rally wheels.
What are the major milestones or phases of your build?
Step 1 will be securing parts through purchase on eBay Motors for Engine/ Transmission, Brake system, and suspension system. We expect this will take in excess of 30 days during which time some work will progress.
Step 2 is the major operation of the Engine/transmission conversion. We are all positive that unknown issues will "pop up" during this portion of the build.
Step 3 and a major hurtle will be getting total agreement on the wheel tire package to put the car on. As different as each member's personality will be their own proposed style and tire fitments.
Step 4 is the "look forward to" as Team Members will be able to lend their hand to drivability through some track time. Step 5 is our plan to dominate
