    I'll only clean the rust off where I have to weld...no further cleaning required

    What do you think how frequently this should be washed or clean? I don't much more idea about this. Please tell me if you have time.

    It's only clean because I was inside the motor...believe me ill never wash it. Every time I wash my road glide it costs me a couple grand. I currently have no duct tape installed anywhere yet but it is a jeep and I'm sure it will sooner or later

    Rub some dirt on that monkey, too clean for the likes of my shop. Needs some duct tape somewhere too.

    Yeah, it's already over powered by about 450 hp. Stock jeep had a 60 hp 4 banger. The lt is pushing just north of 500. The caddy motor just doesn't look as clean is the only reason for not running it, the lt just fits the jeep better. I originally started out with a buick 229 in it when I started, then set a 5.3 in and then came across the lt. It just looked right to me. The ls motor had to have a car intake to clear the stock hood. The buick was cool but there are lots of old jeeps with those. The buick and the ls were mocked up but that's as far as I got with those before I decided on the less desirable lt..just looks right

    That Escalade motor in the Jeep would be a lot.... but add a turbo... AND.... Holy SH-er COW....!!! ...

    It's primitive compared to the ls stuff. This one has a ecm from a 94-95, mines out of an impala. The engine is a 96 model. The tuning software is tuner cats. It's the best program for 94/95 ecm. Can tune multiple times without having to buy the credits like I do for my hp tuner software. It's on a 2 bar map tune. I copied a supercharged tune then have been modifying a little to run on the turbo instead of a belt drive charger. The biggest difference is turbo lag, and that's no problem.. just advanced ignition timing till it reaches equal pressure in the intake, then it starts pouring fuel in and takes timing out. All easily adjustable on the spark, fuel and maf tables.

Tore it down back in September of 15, been back together since yesterday.. new tune. Cometic mls gaskets, arp head studs and a 7 psi spring instead or the 12 in the wastegate. Nothing like hearing that scream from the turbo, still need to fine tune it but it's a real hot rod. It's one of the most powerful small blocks I've ever had and the least amount of jeep I've ever had....
    What are you using for an ECM...??..reflashed GM..?? or standalone..?? and tuning software..??

    Now that I'm thinking that fab list is quickly growing, it's been a 3 year project and just now about to finish it

    I'm sorry, I lied. I sprayed the intercooler flat black and smeared some kind of old bed liner on the top and lit it on fire. It now has the proper patina that the rest of the jeep already had

    No problem on the pics, just remember it was running last year and all my fresh welds are already rusty. No paint was used on this build.
