We purchased this Charger with front end damage and an Ohio salvage title. We have since fully repaired the collision damage and had this vehicle inspected by the Ohio state highway patrol. This Charger now carries a fully insurable salvage rebuilt title that can be transferred to any US state.

We put lower frame rails, a front bumper bar and header panel on this Charger from a donor vehicle. We also used front fenders and a front bumper from a donor Charger and painted to match the car. The air bags deployed in this Charger. We have since installed airbags and seat belts from the donor vehicle. You can see the link above for the build and progress photos.

We have also done some preventative maintenance on this vehicle and replaced some common wear items. We have installed new intake gaskets, new brake pads, and new rotors. We changed the oil using Mobil 1, the tires have been spun and balanced and, the vehicle has been aligned.

The car runs, drives, starts, and stops like it should. There are no active lights on the cluster and we have put over 500 test miles on it since it has been repaired.

2008 Wrangler JK 6.1L HEMI Swap Part 4

Were back with part 4 of our 2008 Wrangler JK HEMI swap blog. As always the crew here at Power and Performance has been working extra hard to get this Jeep rolling down the road. The experience thus far as been an all around positive and enjoyable one. Everyone involved in this build is truly excited to see the finished product. In our last blog we showed the finalization of the engine mount fabrication and our custom built exhaust manifolds. We have since finished are cooling system and custom built a beautiful 3″ stainless mandrel bent exhaust. We will get to the exhaust and the cooling in a bit, but before we do I want to get even a little further behind the scenes to show the heart of this beast on “the operating table”, so to speak.

As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, our 6.1L donor engine was removed from a Chrysler 300C SRT-8. With a build of this magnitude and importance, we wanted to make sure this 6.1L engine was in the best possible shape it could be in. The engine was sent into our professional engine shop for a complete tear down and refresh. We wanted to to verify that all the internals were in good working order, and pretty up the parts we could with some fresh paint. Here are some photos of the engine disassembled in our shop.

The engine was spec’d out, everything looked great and she was reassembled with fresh gaskets.

 

Now lets jump back to the present and take a look at this custom exhaust that we made up for the Jeep. As you can see this is full 3″ stainless all the way back to a single mac muffler. This exhaust gives the Jeep a very nice deep rumble to let you know that something other than the 3.6L is lurking under the hood.

The cooling has also been completed with a custom overflow bottle fit right up next to the radiator keep the system nice and tight.

 

Everything presented in this blog post has both form and function and is a work of art it its own right. Every single person involved in this build has had a blast working on this jeep!

In the next installment of our Wrangler swap blog we will be putting the finishing touches on the Jeep and approaching the initial test drive. Please stayed tuned to see the finish product. As always, feel free to call or email us with any questions or comments. 866-236-5031 and clevelandpap@yahoo.com

2008 Wrangler JK 6.1L HEMI Swap Part 2

Cleveland Power and performance is proud to continue our latest build! We will be completing a 2008 Wrangler JK 6.1l HEMI swap. If you haven’t already, please make sure to check out our first blog entry on this build.

Due to the overwhelming requests from our customers, we will be swapping this 6.1L Hemi SRT-8 V8 engine into a theft recovery Wrangler Rubicon. Since the theft recovery had no damage, it has already been inspected by the state and carries a Rebuilt Ohio Title. We are now going to go forward with installing the SRT-8 Hemi Engine. Follow this blog to see the swap from start to finish.

In our last entry on this Jeep, we left off with the Jeeps body off of the frame. We took the necessary measurements that we needed and began an inventory list on the parts needed for the swap. As mentioned previously, we will be doing as much of this build as possible in house. That means using parts that we already have here, and fabricating what we can.

When we began looking into doing this swap, we honestly saw a very limited selection of parts and we set out to make our own kit, instead of buying one of the available kits. We are going to compare numbers and in the end see how much our parts cost as opposed to the kits out there. Making our own kit is also going to give this swap better form and fit over the cookie cutter kits out there that use generic coolers, bottles, and hoses.

After removing the original wrangler driveline, the engine mounts seemed like a good place to start the fabrication. Here are some photos showing the original mounts, and the set that we made in our shop.

We also began test fitting the HEMI in the Jeep to get an idea of the available space we will have for cooling, batteries, manifolds etc. Here is how the drivelines look next to each other, and how the HEMI looks in the Jeep.

Next we will tackle the necessary modifications to the exhaust manifolds, cooling, and more. Stay tuned to our blog to see this Jeep come to life, and as always please feel free to give us a call at 66-236-5031 with any questions.

 

2008 Wrangler JK 6.1L HEMI Swap

Cleveland Power and performance is proud to announce our latest build! We will be completing a 2008 Wrangler JK 6.1l HEMI swap.

Due to the overwhelming requests from our customers, we will be swapping this 6.1L Hemi SRT-8 V8 engine into a theft recovery Wrangler Rubicon. Since the theft recovery had no damage, it has already been inspected by the state and carries a Rebuilt Ohio Title. We are now going to go forward with installing the SRT-8 Hemi Engine. Follow this blog to see the swap from start to finish.

Below you will see pictures of the wrangler, as we received it, next to the 6.1L HEMI donor engine.

We will be doing as much of this build “in house” as possible. We will be fabricating bracketry, mounts, and whatever else we have to so that by the time we finish this swap we are prepared to do another one.

We started the build by taking the body of the Wrangler off of the frame to see what were working with. Here are some pictures showing the body off of the frame.

 

We can now remove the original driveline, and begin fabricating our mounts. We will be using the original transmission and transfer case out of the wrangler behind the HEMI. Stayed tuned to this blog to see the build progress. As always please feel free to call or email with any comments or questions.

83 Trans Am custom build with Fourth Gen LS1 swap Part II

Cleveland Power and Performance is proud to present this 83 Trans Am custom build with Fourth Gen LS1 swap, which will show you how easily you can update your Gen 3 F-Body with a ton of bolt on Gen 4 Parts! We will be incorporating an LS1 Driveline swap, updated to larger disc brakes, a fourth gen Trans AM Interior, and incorporating every piece of a late model Trans AM into this classic beauty! Long live the 80s!

In the last installment of our 83 Trans Am LS1 swap blog we started off by showing how we received the Trans Am. We received a stock, 5.0L 83 Trans Am with the goal of swapping as many components out of a Fourth Gen as possible. We are going to build this 83 into a modern upholstered, fuel injected, tribute to the awesome era that was the 80’s!

In our last blog we left off with basically a bare shell with no interior and no driveline. We have since started to replace the old with the new. Take a look at the pictures below showing the modifications that we have done to the front cradle to allow for the fitment of the LS1 engine

We also opted to put bigger brakes on the TA to give it some more stopping power. We ordered a kit from bigbrakeupgrade.com that allows us to use fourth gen calipers and rotors on the front by modifying the stock 83 spindles.

The brake kit made installation a breeze and is a huge upgrade in both form and function.

We also began plans on modifying the firewall to allow for the installation of the fourth gen heater box, ac components, brake system and more.

 

Next we will begin mocking up the engine and blueprinting the underhood compartment to figure out where we are going to run our harness, ac lines, etc.

Stay tuned to our blog to see this car come to life.

Salvage Dodge Challenger SRT-8 6.1L Rebuild

Follow this blog to see this Salvage Dodge Challenger SRT-8 6.1L Rebuild from start to finish!

We received this Salvage titled 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8 with light rear end damage and light interior fire damage. We will be replacing the damaged interior parts on this car and offering it for sale. This Challenger would be the perfect candidate for a custom build or to repair your wrecked challenger. This Challenger features the 6.1l engine, automatic transmission, leather interior, navigation, Brembo Brakes, and much more. We have seen our Challenger donor vehicles used in many very unique custom builds, from Classic Plymouth wagons to the iconic Challengers of the seventies. Our donors have also provided all of the interior, driveline, and electronics on heavy fire and flood damaged Challengers.

Here are some photos showing the Challenger as we received it.

As you can see from the pictures, this challenger suffered no front end damage, and most of the interior was untouched by the rear contained fire. The vehicle did get hit in the rear, which pushed the trunk pan in a bit. We started this rebuild by removing all of the interior, which will allow us to thoroughly clean the trunk and floor pans, as well as inspect the interior for other damage.

We will continue the build by thoroughly cleaning the floor and trunk pans to eliminate and odors caused by the burn. We will also replace several other parts on the challenger that need to be replaced, then test drive the Challenger and ultimately offer it for sale. Stay tuned to our blog to see the finished product. If you are interested in this Dodge Challenger, please give us a call at 866-236-5031 to discuss.

 

2006 Chevy Corvette C6 Automatic Donor

Watch this blog entry to follow a start to finish build on this 2006 Chevy Corvette C6 automatic donor car. When we are finished with this Vette, it will be a fully functional, run and drive go kart which will be the perfect chassis for all sorts of custom builds.

This particular car features an LS2 engine with automatic transmission, black leather interior, complete brake system, fuel system, suspensions and much more. When we build one of our donor cars or “go-karts” we strip away all of the clutter, leaving only the essentials for your build.

Here are some pictures showing what the car looked liked when we received it here in our facility.

We started this build, like we do with nearly all of our Vette donors, by racking it on a lift to see what, if any suspension components need replaced. We spin wheels, check control arms, etc to verify that every part that will be going back on the vehicle is true and straight. If any part needs replaced, we obtain it from our back stock inventory of Corvette parts.

Once we have an inventory on what needs replaced or repaired, we start by removing the body panels. Here are some photos of the Corvette after the first stages of tear-down.

At this point, we inspect the engine and driveline to verify that everything is in good working order. We will also begin to inspect the interior components, power functions.

Please stay tuned to this blog to see the second part of this build, and the conclusion in which wee will offer the completed donor Vette for sale.

If you have any questions on this vehicle, or any of the vehicles we have, please give us a call at 866-236-5031 to discuss.

83 Trans Am custom build with Fourth Gen LS1 swap

Cleveland Power and Performance is proud to present this 83 Trans Am custom build with Fourth Gen LS1 swap, which will show you how easily you can update your Gen 3 F-Body with a ton of bolt on Gen 4 Parts! We will be incorporating an LS1 Driveline swap, updated to larger disc brakes, a fourth gen Trans AM Interior, and incorporating every piece of a late model Trans AM into this classic beauty! Long live the 80s!

 

We want to show all of our customers that this third gen TA could be easily swapped over to a fuel injected LS setup with upgraded interior using almost all parts that we have here in stock.

We will be using the driveline, interior, rear axle, front brakes and more from a donor fourth gen Trans Am. Nearly all of the parts that we will be using in this build are here at Power and Performance, in stock and in our warehouse. This is truly an all “in house” build.

We started by striping the interior of the 83, and taking out the original 305 engine to allow for mock up. We are going to use as much of the fourth gen interior as possible. A good amount of the new interior fits nicely and does not require an extensive amount of modification. Other parts will require a some modification, but in the end will give the 83 a much need update.

This is just the beginning of an exciting build and we will be posting pictures of the process as we go. Please stay tuned to our blog to see this car come to life step by step! Next up we will mock up the interior and drive line to see how everything fits and looks. We will also start on the rear axle and upgraded front brakes. Please feel free to let us know what you think of the build!
