Re: Chevelle 2.0

Beastly! Sounds great on camera, but I am sure it sounds even better in real life.

Re: Chevelle 2.0

Sounds awesome Herb. What are you using for a crank position sensor/mount, cam sync and ECU. I see you are using individual coil-per-plug as I have opted for but I hesitate to mount the coils on the valve covers for fear of it looking too much like an LS platform especially with the Hogans fabricated intake which looks suspiciously like yours just sitting in place in this photo! I have some questions for you which I will ask via PM. Again, looks and sounds great!

Thanks! It sounds good but my temporary exhaust is stupid loud!

Your engine looks great David! I have the Holley HP ECU and I'm using a Holley Dual Sync distributor for the crank and cam signals.


112-583 105 mm throttle body
565-200 dual-sync distributor with the 566-103 blank cap.
556-128 smart coil Kit.
558-307 universal ignition harness


I haven't decided where I want to mount the coils, which is why they're just hanging on the valve covers with a zip tie. The plug wires are from a distributor setup, which is why they're so long. Once the engine is in the car and I can figure out where I want everything, I'll trim all the wiring and make a set of appropriate length plug wires.

I've seen the coils mounted on the firewall, that looked really good.

Re: Chevelle 2.0

I had spoken with Mike Lewis about valve cover mounted coils and I believe it was his experience that just bolting them on with the appropriate screws/nuts/spacers led to oil seeping out. Welding threaded stand-offs was probably the best bet if that mounting option was the choice. I had located a really nice set of billet firewall mount brackets that I would have purchased in a heartbeat but they were not available for sale so I ended up purchasing a set of 16 gauge stamped metal brackets which the coils should hide for the most part. As far as cam sync and crank position sensor, I had ATI build me a custom 60-2 (58X) Trigger Shell for their 7" BBC Super Damper with the missing teeth correctly oriented for the driver's side mounted Holley 556-111 Crank Trigger Bracket. The cam sync is an EFI Connection Billet 1X (Accel distributor body/shaft/gear) Cam Sync Plug. Throttle body is the Holley 112-581 Street/Race version with the low RPM taper.

I've thought of that as well as down low near the crossmember. I really have no idea where I want them. I'm just going to wait until I get all the sheet metal work done and the engine is mounted. Before I can start on the headers everything that will be in the engine bay needs to be in place.

It sounds like you have all the details worked out. I wasn't sure what I should do when I started down this road so I went with the dual-sync because it seemed like a simple why to make it all work. So far so good.



Since I'm using Holley Smart Coils, I went with a set of their mounting brackets.
