Quadrasteer Suburban tow rig

2003 Suburban 2500 Quadrasteer camper towing 8.1L 6.0L swap 4L80-E

Overview

Having really liked our 2005 Yukon XL, I was gearing up to tow a small-ish camper across the country with it (5.3L 4x4 3.42 gears, Autoride). At some point I decided that a 1500 with soft coil springs and tall gears might be OK for camping a few hours from home (I even got the airbag shocks and compressor working again), but for thousands of miles and tackling the continental divide, a stouter rig was in order. No interest in pickups since they're too cramped for 6 people all day long. While looking for 3/4-ton Suburbans I remembered that some Quadrasteer ones had been built. Since I was involved a little with the truck 4-wheel steering during my time at Delphi (see https://patents.google.com/patent/WO2001020822A1/zh), I decided no other vehicle would do. So after chasing them down in various parts of the country, I ended up driving to Syracuse to pick up this Maryland native.

Can I build a Buick in here? Picking up a Regal GS with no engine, but lots of aftermarket parts. Plans are something like this: -Replacement L67 engine (S/C 3800) -Ported supercharger and matching intake -Intercooler -Undersize supercharger pulley (3.0"?) -50lb/hr injectors (left over from E85 conversion) -Fenderwell air intake -Stainless headers -custom 3" downpipe and exhaust -maybe a cam -Dyno tuning at ZZP -Stock suspension -No exterior mods. The idea is a comfy DD and sleeper...
