Thread: 1967 Cougar LSx Conversion

  1. #1

    Default 1967 Cougar LSx Conversion

    I'm working on a 1967 Cougar that will be mostly street driven, and see the drag strip on occasion. The car was a mild custom built in the early 1970s, and the plan is to maintain as much of that old flavor as possible, while bringing the drivetrain into the 21st century. A full build thread can be read here:
    http://www.pro-touring.com/threads/1...7-Cougar-build

    The engine is a 2009 LH8 (aluminum block 5.3L with 799 heads), basically stock, with the exception of a GM ASA cam, upgraded valve springs, Holley Hi-Ram, Dominator ECU, and dual DBW throttle bodies. The combination is intended to look like a dual quad tunnel ram, but use the latest EFI technology. The transmission is a F-body T56.

    Hoping to be down the road sometime in June. Here's a recent start-up video:

    I like the look of dual Drive-By-Wire throttle bodies. I agree, it looks like a dual quad tunnel ram induction setup, but with modern technology.

    Thanks Danny, and thank you for being such a great help. Sometimes it takes me a few times to understand what the heck I need to do with the simplest of things, like a damn VSS sensor! LOL. Your patience is appreciated.

    Andrew, which Drive-By-Wire throttle bodies are those? Also, did you use an adapter (something like THIS) to mount them? Is that a 4150 bolt pattern tunnel ram top, or was it a blank top?

    You're welcome.

    Danny, the throttle bodies are the ones that came stock on my LH8. I just purchased another one from Amazon. ACDelco PN 2173151. It's a very common TB that was used on a huge list of applications.

    The Hi-Ram top started as a blank piece, and was machined for the 4 bolt TB pattern. The spacers underneath are Holley PN 300-221.
    I used those to raise the throttle bodies up a little, so that the motors would clear the flat Hi-Ram top. Andrew

    Thanks for the information, it all makes sense now.
