Nice build! Nice details!
The current springs on N8track's Valiant are the Mopar Performance Oval Track Leaf Spring MP4529414. For some added height in the rear, there is also a +1" height version which is MP4529415
Thanks! Fit typical A body or require mods to work?
Does this picture have the ss springs on it or no? Thanks.
I like the spoiler touch.
A very nice direction on this great build sir
Great fabrication! I like post cars.
In the picture you quoted those are the old SS springs.
this right here is how you state your differing opinion and tastes in someone else's build thread, but stay respectful and supportive of your fellow enthusiasts. very rare skill sometimes.. this thing is going to be sick when it's all buttoned up. looks fast just sitting there..
I just got a set of these Mickey Thompson SC-5 flat black wheels 17x9 & 17x10 that are being cleared out online now.
Looks like it was born there.
Finally running! It was quite a thrash the last couple weekends to get it together. There are still a few things to button up, but I was able to take a short little test drive. The HemiDenny front end felt great, massive steering feel change. Very precise and with good weighting(not too light). The clutch and trans felt light and easy, better than expected on the clutch, since it is rated for 800-ish hp. I still have to get the idle tuning sorted out. I'll post a video when I do. Here are a few pictures of it nearly completed.
Nice! Nice! Nice!
Looks like a pro touring build. What are you hoping to accomplish going to the LS series of engine? Less expensive parts,more power, better handling for pro tour? Just wondering...
I wasn't necessarily trying to make it a pro touring build. More just a moderate budget street car that would be enjoyable to drive. This will be my 3rd LS vehicle, so I am pretty familiar with the motor. Parts cost and massive swap community are the big bonus in my opinion. I'll take it to the drag strip once or twice, maybe an auto-x. I really just wanted to make something I was into now in 2017, rather than the car I wanted when I was 21. 38 year old me has different requirements of a car.
Understood. I've had an LS and driven a few. My swap is an ls3 going in a 67 cuda. I was going to do a 451, but intend to drive it a lot. Figured the 451, like some 440's I've had wouldn't allow that. These platform makes great power and is quite docile doing so as you know. Nice build btw. I'm a follower. Good luck.anxious to see how it runs compared to the 451.
Yeah, the 451 had ok power and ran decent, but I expect this one to be a bit quicker and not leave a small puddle on the garage floor constantly. I didn't put too many engine details in the thread since mopar folks might not care too much about how I built the lq4, but it has: A.I. 232cc ported 243 heads milled for 10.6-.7 compression(on lq4) 230/238 on 113 LSA cam from A.I. Dorman ls2 intake manifold home ported. Hopefully it will trap 120+ in the 1/4, but time will tell.
Please let me know. I was a mopar guy years ago. Now it's what works. I was comparing a 451 to an LS3, but very few videos of 440's or451's vs LS motors. Hard to believed I considered the swap, but like you, I've driven a few and the hemi isn't user friendly. I love my cuda but it's gonna have a gm heart. I like the simplicity of the 451 but the mileage,lightweight, and relialibility of the LS has it beat... Imo. Are you running a 6 speed?
Agreed, and yes the car has a t56 magnum 6 speed now.
I'd like to know a comparison between your car with the previous 451 compared to the LQ4 you have in there now
Quick update, the car is running and the tuning is getting better.
Sounds great! Let us know how ur numbers are when you out get to the track. How's it feel compared to the 451 power wise? You have the power to settle the dispute,,, If it's worth it or not to do.
Where did he go?
