    Default My Ride

    Hey everyone,

    I've been a lurker on this forum for the past 3 years or so, and I've only recently started posting questions of my own. I've been blown away with all the knowledgeable folks here and I always get quick, well informed answers whenever I ask. I should have posted this a long time ago, but better late than never! Here's a pic of my ride - A 1987 Suburban V10 I bought 3 years ago. It came with a 6.2 from the factory and I quickly fell in love with it... about a year later the 700r4 blew up and things just spiraled out of control since then... I picked up a NV4500 and all the parts to do a swap. I rebuilt the new trans and t-case and recently bought another engine with a banks sidewinder. I was planning on just stripping the banks components off and rebuilding the turbo, but after getting into it I realized the block was a solid core - A crack-free '82 660 casting with the large valve heads. Even though the current engine ran fine I decided to start fresh, since it was already out on a stand, and I'm currently in the process of rebuilding it. I plan on making this thing into a rugged trail-riding and boondock camping vehicle - always been a dream of mine. I installed a smittybilt roof rack and located an old warn combo kit and rear mounted spare tire carrier. It's been a bummer the thing has been down for over 2 years now (work traveling, moving, and life in general have gotten in the way) but I know all the time and hard work will be worth it once it's back on the road. Thank you all for your support thus far, I'm looking forward to learning more and more about these engines with all the knowledge available here!
