Re: Malibu Racing LIVES!

I'm glad the site continues on. I know things slowed considerably the last few years, due in part to my absence. I'm grateful Chris was willing to help with saving all the information that was gathered over the years. Best wishes to Chris and the site.

Shutting down MalibuRacing

The MalibuRacing.com site will be shutting down at the end of the current quarterly billing cycle, which is the end of September. I hate to do it, but I just don't have the time or interest in continuing MalibuRacing.com. I would be willing to turn over data/information to anyone willing to take it ...

Re: GEN V 454 Swap ?

Pretty sure you won't be able to use the oil pan unless you carve up your crossmember. The front of the pan sump will hit the crossmember. That was my experience trying to use a Gen4 truck oil pan. The GenV 454's are pretty anemic. The heads have really small ports (smaller that older oval ports). B...

Re: Instrument cluster and A/C Bracket update

It was completed years ago. No changes over the last several years. My son completed his degree after changing his major 3 times. He is now back home and saving money to buy a house. The Malibu is currently sitting in the garage covered in dust. It has not been driven in a couple years. I would get ...

Re: Motor Mount Adapter Summary

From what I remember, I located the engine (and motor mount locations) by referencing the transmission mount location. In other words, I installed the motor/transmission together. I then installed the transmission crossmember (Iceman crossmember). This was how I determined the location of the engine...

Re: Swapping to gauges in dash

Yes, you can use existing wiring if available. As Doober said, you will need to use the sending unit that is included with the aftermarket gauges. I didn't use the factory wiring since most was replaced due to the EFI setup, which used it's on harness.

I've seen others recommend that.

Rodney, I found out quick that it would be nice to have a shelf. I'm definitely going to add one. I'd like to find a Weber lid also.

Built my own smoker

I've been wanting a smoker for a while. Kinda' hard justifying the cost since I don't grill that often. So, I did some research and found a cheap and easy way to make my own smoker called a UDS (Ugly Drum Smoker). Basically it is a 55 gallon drum with some added hardware to make it a smoker. You can...
