The flexplate for the 4l80 is listed above. TCI #399754, spacer built in. Engine/trans should be going in the car not this weekend, but the one after. Just waiting on Texas-Speed to cough up the parts now. Trust me, I want it to be finished just as badly as you do :p

"Hoping these will be done this week finally with a little luck. Between machines crashing and and parts availability issues, we're getting destroyed on these. (The heads)" - Matt @ TSP

Oil pickup came yest... windage tray comes sat, really just waiting on texas speed to get the big parts here.



AAF-ALL10140 ENG LIFT PLATE CHEVY LS SERIES

The lift plate bolts where the valley cover goes and has eyelets for chain or hooks. Makes pulling the motor a piece of cake, and puts less load on the bolt holes then say, bolting a chain to the block.

Yeah, those are the GM tube/stick. Same thing, both take slight modification to make them work, but get the job done. Going to work on the battery mount now, will take a few pics of that, want to use all the stock style hardware.

Braille mounting. I used the stock location/ modified holddown. Sturdy, works great.

First, I trimmed the tire inflator holder foam thingy, in such a way that the battery fit into it. This gives the battery about a 1 inch height boost, so its snug against the hold down rail. It also holds the battery from lateral movement, and the foam will help cushion it against shock.



Here's how it fits in there bare, I added some foam pieces in front of the battery to wedge it in there good.


You can see the cutouts I made around where the battery posts are on the battery. While the positive side is shielded by the plastic cover, better safe then sorry. I trimmed both sides with a grinder, just in case. It's ugly, but its functional. You could certainly do a much neater job if you were so inclined.


And with both battery cables connected, complete. Piece of cake.

Some shots of the Mast black label stroker windage tray. Fantastic fit, tucks in the oil pan, pickup doesnt haev to be bent or moved at all, tons of clearance even on my big stroke (good to 4.25"), and proper oil control. Worth the $60 and backorder wait.

This is what I'm waiting on, all coming with the heads in the final package before the engine goes in the car (along with a ported oil pump and YT6670s from Vengeance). Heads got serialized yesterday, just waiting on the exhaust valve/bowls cut and it's done. Delays delays delays, but supposedly they are shipping on Monday.

Vengeance Racing came through with some Yella Terra's for me. These things are hella NICE. Now if only Texas Speed would get me the rest... patiently waiting.
