The "other car" thread
I figure this could be a good sticky thread.
My daily is an '07 Denali Yukon i picked up for dirt cheap with a bunch of "mom car neglect" issues and fixed them in short order. I'm running headers into the stock 3.5" exhaust that comes on the 6.2L trucks. I'll eventually freshen up the L92 with cathedral heads and a good "truck" cam. I lifted it a couple of inches and put 32x12's on it so i can pull equipment up to my cabin in West Texas and crawl around the trails without dragging on everything. I want to swap in a 9.5" 14-bolt from a 2015+, fab brackets to swap in a 9.25" front diff from an HD(you can get a locker for those), a stick transfer case(AWD blows), and 33's so i don't have to lift it any more than it is and lose ride quality.
My uncle bought the green truck brand new in '74....... actually on my birthday 10 years prior. He did a big block swap in the 80's, but i acquired a '73 454 with a forged crank and big oval-port heads, freshened it up to a 468(by necessity. The cylinders were pitted), and did a Holley Sniper EFI conversion. I'll either do an NV4500 swap or bolt on a Gear Vendors OD to the SM465. For exhaust I'm running a pair of really long smooth-bore glasspacks in the middle and factory C6 Corvette mufflers in the back so i can keep it quiet without choking it down.
I got the Camaro in trade for another square body truck. It's actually what i pulled the 454 for the green truck out of. I have a Vortec 350 almost ready to go into it for the time being, but I might just do the turbo'd junkyard LS thing and make it stupid fast. I really don't know what I'm going to do with it.
The Suburban was a joint venture between my brother and me. I had it up for sale for a while, but I'll probably keep it and do a 4BT Cummins swap on 1-ton axles. The quarters are rusty, but the floor pans and the rest of the body are ok.
