403 build

New here. Figures is post a build thread. Even though this forum looks pretty dead.



Picked this up December 2013 and it's almost finished for the most part.
I sold my built and supercharged mustang and picked up the gto for it's replacement. I knew I wanted a gto and a 403. Just so happened I found a 05 IBM 6spd with a knock in Oklahoma on craigslist. Perfect for what I wanted and a color I wanted as well. Called the ad and went to pick it up the next morning. Car looked good so I loaded it up and headed back to texas.

Mods already on the car:
Pacesetter LT catless mids
Magnaflow mid pipe
Magnaflow cat back
K&n hot box

Pulled the motor a week after I got it home.


Here is what I have done so far:

403 kit.
-Callie's crank
-Callie's h beam rods
-wiesco pistons
Ls7 lifters
Pacesetter long tubes (came with the car)
New lifter trays, plugs, seals, dowels, etc
Ls9 head gaskets
Ported ls3 heads
Ported ls3 intake manifold
Ls2 throttle body.
Svede intake (used)
Ls3 rocker arms with trunion upgrade
Ls3 rocker stands/pedastals.
244/248 cam
Gm oil pump
Gm timing set
Slp UDP (used)
Gforce drive shaft
Monster level 4
Mgw-p
Mickey thompson et streets
Areomotive 325 pump
Brian tooley valve springs

Misc:
DIY gauge pod for wideband
Full
Bohnman led conversion and aux mod
Switched out the blue seats for a black set.
Replaced the broken front grille and paint the upper/lower grilles gloss black
06 tails
5k hids


Need to be ordered:
Spin tech mufflers to be welded into the magnaflow cat back.

2qwk,

I need a diff built. Your PMs are full. A lot of progress has been made on the car.


Car made 413 by shop A. Took it to shop B for a new tune, first one ran terrible, made 454/459. Not too bad for being an Fi motor tuned NA


Twin turbo has been installed, will be tuned on Tuesday, June 2nd 2015.

Went ahead and ordered ID1300s to run e85





Made a single gauge pod to hold the wideband and gauge pod. Didn't care on condition as I'm waiting for a bohnman a pillar pod to be made.


Bohnman splitter and gtog8ta sap grilles

Twin turbos finally arrived.



Almost finished with the install.

What turbo kit did you go with? What are you doing for suspension? Are you staying with a six speed and plan on rebuilding it or going to auto?

UPP kit
****ty suspension for now. Kyb shocks/struts, BMR drag bags. Need to do research on what a good drag set up would consist of.


I'll be keeping the 6spd. Had a auto for 11 miles. Hated it and got the 6spd

When the trans goes, I'll go with a Tr6060.
When the rear goes, I want 2quik to build a rear with dss axles
