John, I will have several updates on various cars this week. We have luckily been very busy in the shop!

Next, attention was turned to the look of the 6.0 V8 engine. The goal was to have it “resemble” a Gen 1 small block, without going over the top trying to camouflage the late-model engine.



The mock-up block was used with the <a href=" www.edelbrock.com " title="Edelbrock" target="_blank" >Edelbrock</a> intake and EFI fuel rails. We wanted to move the ignition coils off the valve covers, but wanted to do something a bit different to help the illusion.

The result is this “fake” distributor, made from GM truck ignition coils mounted in a circular arrangement to resemble a distributor cap. The truck coils are the smallest bodied versions of LS coils, and the bracket will hold them in the back of the intake manifold behind the throttle body to resemble a distributor.

A rounded “hat” adds to the look.



This way, traditional spark plug wires will route to the spark plugs much like a old Chevy small block.

That coil pack idea is pretty cool!

Next, the attention focused on the side mirrors. These are GM “G” body side mirrors, and a small steel adapter shim plate makes them mount cleanly on the doors, rather than tip inward.
