QuickTime Bellhousing (Scatter shield) Install w/ Pics

Well the time has come to install a new clutch on my 2004 GTO with 20,653 miles on it. This is the second aftermarket clutch but the first Brand New clutch that I am installing. The latest was a seven year old Spec 3, six puck with steel flywheel... it got me 22-23K+ miles of severe abuse between my 2000 Trans Am and my 2004 GTO. Anyhow.. time to move on, Monster Stage 3 with Steel Flywheel, TickShift remote speedbleeder and QUICKTIME Bellhousing to be installed.

Got the parts today and started fitting my QuickTime bellhousing (part #RM-8020, LS1 to T56)

Pulled it from the box to inspect:



Then got right to work, first with the block plate: holding it up to the block, on the aligning dowels and marking with a Sharpie a rough area of where I had to grind for clearance of the Driver's side header and around the starter.
This was really easy using a 4" angle grinder with a used grinding wheel about 2.5-2.75" diameter, a new 4" wheel would be fine as well but I could get in the starter hole better with the smaller wheel. I then finish ground it with a dremel tool and painted the bare metal with black Rustoleum. I just kept checking for good clearance and fitment while grinding a little bit at a time so it would not be sloppy, I left probably 1/4-3/8" of clearance near the header for exhaust movement and no chance of rubbing vibration.






You can obviously see where the block plate needed to be notched for the header and then clearanced for fitment on the top of the starter.

Once I got it to a fit I was satisfied with, I used the block plate as a "template" to mark the areas to be ground, on the bellhousing. Using the marker again I drew lines for guidance, then had at it with the grinder:

With the block plate, holes aligned on top of the bellhousing I could make the marks (at this point I had already painted the bare metal on the block plate but you can see the shape difference).

Continue....

Fitment check on the car until satisfied:





Then of course I sprayed the bare metal on the bellhousing and it's drying over night, until tomorrow or Friday when the weather is good enough to get back outside and finish the install.
I will post pictures of the final product with everything installed...


Hope this helps clear things up for those on the fence about buying a SFI approved Bellhousing/Scatter shield.

Here's the rest of the install with Pics:

Monster Steel Flywheel installed with QuickTime Block plate:


Monster Stage 3:


QuickTime Bellhousing/Scatter Shield Installed, Fits Great!!


Triple check on the header clearance:


Triple check on the Starter clearance:


Transmisson installed onto the QuickTime Bellhousing... nice Fit!!


Overall a very easy install. A Transmission jack would help a bunch! The only thing I am not excited about is the starter is now open to the elements and with the open hole there, it allows a chance for little critters to get in the bellhousing during winter storage.... I'll have to make a cup of some sore to block it off...

Any Questions Ask Away and I will do my best to answer them!

The shipping weight on the box said 31lbs for the bellhousing and I am pretty sure the Monster weighs the same or close to it to that of the Spec 3. So I gather right about 31lbs give or take for extra bolts and grinding....

You're absolutely correct, I omitted that part.

I just weighed he stock bellhousing as best I could, it came out to 9 pounds, so the QT bellhousing is right about 20 pounds.... good guess. There are a few more bolts that I would install as well.. just haven't yet, they're through bolts that just hold the block plate to the bellhousing, I don't see them being 100% necessary. You can only fit like 5 of them since some holes are obstructed by the engine block.
You can see some of these through holes in teh pics above....

Great write up!!! Just a note, I just opened my QuickTime manufactured in March 10' and the starter area is now enclosed. Maybe from reading this post! Got it from a merchant in Novi, Mi. They had them in stock

Looks good... As said above the new bellhousing is now enclosed. It is not certain if the enclosed one will work with the GTO starter. Also, no grinding is necessary if an F-Body Starter is used. This may the the route the poster above has to take with the new enclosed housing.

Now OP... Go break that bad ass clutch in!

hahaha yeah, I like to see old threads bumped, and then watch some of the responses. Sometimes the old thread bump brings back up very useful information though. Next time I make it back to SETX, I'll have to give you a shout.

I know it's an old post but I did not see where the op dialed in the bellhousing? On the new ones is that step left out?

Are you talking about lining it up with a dial gauge ect?

You don't have to do that on the t56 as far as i know because of the locating pins integrated into the block. They don't make any offset pins for us so there would be no way to move it around anyhow. The only thing you can measure is the distance from the clutch to the face of the bell housing, then measure the slave cyl to make sure that you don't need a spacer behind it to fully disengage the clutch.

In addition to the original grinding on Speed's post, I had to grind off the motor side flange flush at the inside of the starter cover to clear the starter so it would seat flush to the engine. No big deal, but the GTO starter does fit fine after a little more grinding:-{

First off, fabulous post and write up. My next mod. I would disagree on not using any bellhousing to block fasteners. I have long argued our cars have more pressure exerted on the bell housing than anywhere else. We've seen driveshaft failures break trans cases, bell housings, and blocks. JMHO Congratulations on a superb job.
