Thread: AutoPros V8 Build - Photo Thread

  1. #46
    Will post more photos as I can. With everyone taking their vacation times, project vehicles get worked on a little slower. The Dana 300 transfer case and billet adapters are in, and working on larger transmission mount at this moment and we want to modify the controls for the transfer case a little more to look factory. As far as motor mounts, we used the TransDapt biscuit mounts and welded in place of the old mounts. Photos to come as soon as I can.

    WooHoo. Just talked to the kind folks at AutoPros. They are letting us stop by & check out this VX on the 29th. Since we were planning a mini meet in B'more, it made a lot of sense to try & stop by.

    We promise not to drool ... too much.

    On the 29th, the tech that has been working on the VX is not scheduled to work that day but is willing to come in from 9am-10am to answer any questions you guys might have about the build. If you're interested in getting here around that time, please let me know. Thanks!

    I really hate to be a PITA to the tech & make him come in on his day off ... but if he's offering then we are accepting.

    I've got a 2 1/2 hour drive to get there so it's difficult to accurately forcast my arrival time but I'll shoot for 0900.

    Thanks much for letting us do this.

    With such beefier love going into this VX, I'm surprised nobody has brought up suspension yet... I would think that you probably need some tougher shocks/springs to keep all this v8 goodness from causing too much under-steer/wobble and whatnot that another few hundred pounds all the way up front there would cause.... Any plans to upgrade suspension as well??

    I can imagine those guys are even heavier than the stock tranny, too. My question still stands.

    Nope, not the transmission, that's aluminum; the transfer case hanging behind it. That actually helps to bring the center of gravity back towards center mass. You're correct though in that the suspension may need some addressing...time and miles will tell!
