They have a facility near me, don't know if they rebuild there or send to Indiana but I can't imagine that's the case (freight is a killer). I've had the same mechanic work on my daily's for years & he always uses them for "stock" motors and claims they do a good job.

Moser is prob better though. Let us know how the trans hold up! I'd be curious to see. Did you get the "720R" version of the 572?

The 4L80 is/was used in 1 ton Chevy vans, and it's supposed to be tough, which I figure you will find out ! Very Happy

No, I went with the ZZ572 620 flavor. I want to throw some boost at it, and the 720R is way to high compression to do that.

My 4L80 was built by a good friend. I bought all the upgradeable hard parts, so we shall see!

Been plugging away slowly. Shocking... nothing fits. Couldn't find any headers off the shelf that fit very well. They all hung down way too low. So, I gave Dan Lemons a call at Lemons headers. He was awesome. He built a set of 2 1/8" headers and tacked them for me. After install, there were a few tubes that hit pretty bad. So, I cut a bunch of holes and slots in them, took a bunch of photos and sent them back. He made the requested modifications, still only tack welded them, and back to me for round 2. They were super close to fitting at this point, so I requested a couple more changes. Round 3 fit great, so I sent them back to him for a final weld. Talk about doing a great job. Wish I could weld like this guy!!!! He even beveled the edges of every tube at the collector and the flange.

So.... Here's some header porn for you! Photos don't do them justice. They are super nice.

Been a while since I've posted, but here's a quick up date.
- Took the 572 out and sent it over to the engine shop for some ARP2000 studs and bolts to be installed.
- Drilled and installed bungs for the injectors in the intake, and had some custom fuel rails made.
- Installing a 28 circuit Painless Wiring harness (I would say slightly more than painless.....)
- Installed power windows.
- Installing the Dominator ECU with DIS system. (This is an awesome piece, but it is a ton of work.)
- Installed an Aeromotive Dual Stealth Fuel system into a new fuel tank.
- Upgraded fuel line to mostly 1/2" hardline and PTFE hose from tank to hardline, and hardline to fuel rails.
- Installing a VaporWorx fuel controller to run a returnless fuel system.
- Put the engine back in the car. (Hopefully for the last time)

Thanks you! Yes, most likely going to be pretty thirsty. Hoping the fuel injection helps when cruising, but not holding my breath.

I spent a ton of time in the garage Saturday, but sure didn't seem like I accomplished much. Then I realized I spent over an hour making a wiring harness for the fuel pumps that no one will EVER see.
