Weren't those Trailblazer axles offset as well? I know the Explorer axles are but I thought the Trailblazers had an offset rear axles as well.  You could do the same Explorer trick to narrow the rear axle.

Just a thought since you already have it and have it in the budget. You could probably re-drill the hubs to  6x5.5 fairly easily and find some silverado steelies to get 15" or 16" tires on the rear.

Along that same line, there is not even a need to redrill. Trailblazers had steelie spares and Humpie appears to be wearing one on the RF already.

Not much of an update, but I'm working hard to get the BMW out of the garage and back to daily duty so I can focus on this. I got Humpie the engine donor running well enough that I'm comfortable pulling out as-is.

On the lookout for a low profile car style LS intake manifold. (LS1, LS6 or even an LS4) Anyone have one for next to nothing? Even broken, needing major repairs, are being considered. Thanks.

I’ll ask Aeromoto. He had a Vette that was trashed & I think it even had damage to the engine.

Really minor update.

 

The BMW is out of the garage.  Not doing daily duty as I had planned, but rather it was sold to a new owner.  Also Patrick found the LS4 intake manifold he thought he'd tossed in the trash.  He's letting me have it for the budget friendly price of $0.  Hurray!  Just need to coordinate picking it up from him to save shipping $$.

I'll likely be in Indy on business at the end of next month.  I'll be traveling with others so I won't have a car and my free time will be limited, but I wouldn't be against a late night rendezvous in the parking lot if we can make it work.

Cool. Thanks for the offer.  You can get my number from Patrick.

Patrick is trying to organize a garage night to help with the Wartburg, so I'm trying to make it over for that if at all possible.

This thread needs more LS pulling.
