Dual fuel - Tube Front - Rear mount radiator craziness

Hey guys, long time no talk. It finally happened. I bought back my old gto about a year ago. Trashed, guy parted it out and let the bank repo it. Motor, trans front clip gone. For those of you that don’t know me, I was one of the first, if not the first to do a solid axle swap into gto with 4 link.

Anyways, I bought my Og car back and it still had the 9” under it.

After a year of searching I finally found a donor car for a reasonable price for the parts I needed. Bought this car for $1700. Tons of aftermarket suspension parts, 06 back bumper and tails, etc. plus the holy grail sap front bumper. I’ve been mulling over what to do with this car for a year, as I have a twin turbo ws6, supercharged 6 speed ss nova, heads cam converter ly5 73 camaro, and tons of other shit.

So I decided why not take this car and do some more off the wall shit with it.

So here is the plans.
I’m going to tube front it, like I did my trans am but go farther with it. Front he firewall forward everything will be gone, sams the 2 frame rails that come up. I’m going to run a couple chromoly bars from the firewall forward on each side of where the strut rides to catch the strut mount.

I’m going to use the whole tubular k member, coil overs and tubular control arms I have from an f body and graft them onto the gto. If you can’t tell from the SRA swap, I’m not about that super expensive crappy gto suspension life.

Radiator will be minntes under the rear of the car like my nova is.

Dual fuel system, pump 91 and M1. Non intercooled twin s366 or so.

I’ll probably stick my forged 348 and trans braked 4l80e into the car for now.

I’m going to build a chromoly mini structure Inside the front fenders and bumper to tie them all together so that the front can be removed in one piece.

Up in the air on engine management currently, still lots of research to do and it will be a slow process for the next few months while I gather parts and get things ready.

Thanks man! Feels really good to be back in the gto game, and even better to put the things I’ve learned, and the tools I’ve acquired since owning this car the first time to good use on one. I’m super excited to get this party started

I have to retract that. I found a few singles I’m highly interested in and may actually go single now. My buddy has my old big single custom grind he never used and he wants to buy my old twin turbo cam, I may swap him my twin cam for his single.

Looking at these. Any input?




Looking at the Garrett GT88 and the s400 82Ett.
