Default BobtailedSnail's LSx MS6 and N/T Nova

While we wait for this project to lift off, here's a video of Matt Hapel's second Colorado build, Gen 3 LQ4, reused the stock headbolts and headgasket. These motors amaze me everytime I see them.

Little teaser. Friend let me borrow one of his Welds to test fit.

This is a 15x8 5.5"BS (21mm offset) with a 275/60 (28") I'll be doing a 26" tall but tire width is unknown. Also the wheel hit the caliper on the face of all places. So a little spacer will solve that issue or shaving the caliper down. Right where the barrel dips to meet the spokes. I'll probably order a set of 15x8 6.5"BS (51mm offset)

More pics

Where it nicks the caliper.

I know the poke is corny. It'll tuck nicely inside the car on the finished product. Thank you to @BigRed06; for getting me straight on what brakes to use in the rear to eliminate the contact issue all together.

Good to know that 15s will work. What brakes are you gonna use in the rear?

Also, I know fender flares are sorta corny but they would cover the poke.

03-05 Mazda6 rears. They should be considerably smaller. A set of good rotors and pads and I should be fine.

I really do want them to tuck. And I'm sure the 6.5"BS (51mm offset) will be nice and flush. I also decided to run 245/55/15 M&H radials. Equivalent to a 26x9. I've had good luck with M&H on my Chevelle (325/45/17) and my Nova (390/45/15). This makes it easier for me on the front tires as well. I can do a 17 in the front with Evo calipers and 245/45/17

Little update. Finally sold the motor out of the speed! No more 4cyl in my life.
Also wrapped up a single turbo Silverado build for a friend of mine.

My first order of business is to finish my Nova before May 18th and have Nishan tune it so I can go to the Cruisin' in Ocean City. Then the Mazda will be focused on. But I did purchase a motor plate and heads for it so it's not on the back burner by any means. I also sold the Powerglide today and am going to cut to make this TH400 fit. Look for mockup pics soon.

I think these should help you fit a bigger tire.

Bump! Spoke to 16W Fab works today and we are finally getting started on mounting the Cobra 8.8 IRS rear in stock rear subframe. I’m putting the finishing touches on my Nova tomorrow get it racing this year. I’m swaying on if I want to still run a TH400 or do the work to fit up a 4L80e.

Flares won’t necessarily help fit a larger tire without cutting the fenders, which I’d rather back half the car and put a 4link in it with tubs before I went with flares.
