Blu3streak Project BlueStreak 2011 Silverado build

Postby Blu3streak [OP] » May 31 2020, 10:45am

Old member with a new name and truck. Frank from Texas here with a 2011 Silverado extended cab 4.8L. This truck is still under construction and I will give y'all a rundown on what I have done so far and what is coming very soon and quick. 
2011 Silverado extended cab 4.8L
*Transmission Work*
4L60E to 4L80E swap 
PCM of NC plug and play swap harness 
Speed Industries 4L80E swap crossmember 
Flywheel and spacer installed
*Engine Work*
VVT delete w/new cam position sensor 
TSP stage 2 turbo cam 
TSP 7.4" hardened pushrods 
PAC660 springs w/1 piece seats/seals, titanium hats
CHE rocker arm trunion upgrade 
LS7 lifters with new TSP/GM lifter trays 
New gaskets/seals
New cam sprocket and chain
New ARP balancer bolt
New Melling high volume oil pump 
ARP head bolts
Heads cleaned and valves lapped
Ported throttle body 
Ported intake manifold 
Stock coils and injectors 
Long tube headers with y-pipe and Borla Pro XS muffler 
Vararam Tri-Power R** Air Induction 
New upstream O2 sensors 
Baseline tune from tuner so I can start the truck without issues and keep it all lubricated and moving
*Interior*
New padding and black carpet
Deep cleaned interior
New switches in door panels
Seats deep cleaned (but still smell like beer and piss)
All seatbelts replaced (sending driver side front off for repair)
*Exterior*
2003 Silverado SS wheels sanded down, cleaned, primered, painted gloss black and clear coat (need new center caps)
New hood, new driver side fender, swapped out passenger front door, repaired passenger side fender and rear door, swapped out the bed and am in the process of finishing bodywork, new blacked out grill with blue bowtie emblem, new front bumper, new 1 piece tailgate spoiler, complete brake job all around. 
New smoked LED headlights, new smoked LED taillights, new smoked 3rd brake light 
Raptor liner spray in bedliner 
4/2 lowering kit (not yet installed)
***Coming quickly and soon***
Sealer, Blue Ray Metallic paint with clear coat 
Sunroof w/new headliner
New 2 piece driveshaft w/custom crossmember and yoke
Full custom tune
New front seats
Black/blue seat covers
Full upgraded stereo system 
New shocks
***In September***
Single turbo with new tune and exhaust 
Upgrade the fuel system 
Install lowering kit and have driveshaft corrected 
Rear drum to disc conversion 
Gear change

All this work expect for the driveshaft, sunroof and tune is being done by me. Unfortunately the previous owner was a drunk and did not take care of the truck. The interior smelled of beer and piss and the entire truck seemed like is had been used as a crash derby truck. Lol. Thankfully it ran when I got it and drive, but was severely battered. I am nearly done with the body and will be painting it very soon.

Short clip of the first start up on project "BlueStreak". Ended up with a small coolant line leak, bit other than that and some fresh fuel she is thumpin'. Now I need the driveshaft shop to get their stuff together and get my crossmember and 2 piece driveshaft made up. Been over 2 weeks so far.

That's a lot of work! Looking good! I'm assuming you got it for a good price to make all that work worth it.
