Jeremy Jon Posted June 28, 2015 Share Posted June 28, 2015 (edited) I don't get on here as often as I'd like, and been asked about engines that I've been developing, but I realize not everyone is on FB either to see pics there ...so here are some pics of my most recent Monsters This is a major revamp of the Revell 1:25 Hemi LX V8, with most obvious addition of Supercharger, but the changes go much deeper, every single component has been modified and enhanced in some way, or else scratch built ...even the plain oil filter was replaced with a more detailed piece The poorly kit (plain blank) heads were completely redone, with casting details, and proper separate Hemi LX valve covers made from scratch, including bolts and twin spark plugs Proper coil-on-plug ignition coil packs were made, and cast separately also The supercharger with bespoke intake manifold is full of detailing, separate throttle body was scratch built, with tight fitting intake tube + cone filter (actually fits under kit hood), fuel rail and injector detail, and Hemi specific "through manifold" oil filler + cap Even the engine accessory plate is more detailed, with proper radiator hose spouts in place, and more detailing, with of course new serpentine belt + tensioner set-up for the supercharger Automatic VAG1 transmission still fits, but I adapted the T56 6 speed to fit now (as shown) I'm pretty proud of how this newest engine set turned out This is the supercharged (C6) LS V8 engine build Lots of hidden detailing improvements on this baby also, and of course the most obvious, supercharger Another LS project, just finishing up this one, a truly unique (since IRL never existed, that we know of?) and fun ...monster 9.45L V12 engine set transmission is a Tremec 6060 6 speed, and fully detailed block, heads, intake and simpler accessory belt system (A/C and P/S delete) with low hung Alternator, block hugger tri-Y headers, and tight fitting intake snorkel with cone filter (due to engines length), to (try) fit some hot rod engine bays?!
