2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP LS4 DoD 4T65E TAPShift powertrain swap into a Pontiac Fiero
I figured out a
solution for relocating the alternator but it was a tight fit; and some
modifications were required to the block and chassis to accomidate this mounting
It may be hard to see in the pictures, but there is about 1/4" clearance between the alternator and CV drive axle and exhaust manifold. The CV drive axle tripod end shouldn't ever be able to come in contact with the alternator and the exhaust manifold is double wrapped with thermal barrier. I also applied some heat reflective tape to the area of the alternator that is closest to the manifold. Should keep it sufficiently protected.
Finished the fuel
pump install (Walbro 255lph) and hooked up the fuel pressure regulator...
Also got the water
pump housing/cover cut down and ready for welding. But before I do that it was
time for another test fit to make sure everything I have done so far is going to
And it looks good. I
think I have the belt routing sorted out so as soon as I get the welding done to
the housing I will add the last idler pulleys. The tensioner I decided to go
with on this engine was the most compact one I could find -- which was for an
LQ1 engine (3.4 DOHC).
