• Bloomington Area Career Center would like to thank Jerry Adams at Mid-State Transmission & Auto Repair for his generous donations to our Automotive Technology Program.  

    Jerry Adams donated transmission parts for the current 4L60E transmission. 

    Bloomington Area Career Center would like to thank Dave Sisco, Mike Dennis, and their employees for their generous donations to our Automotive Technology Program.  These donations will greatly facilitate the construction of a V8 engine swapped, GMC Sonoma within our student laboratory.

     

    Dave Sisco of Sisco’s R & R in Fairbury donated our base project vehicle, a 1998 GMC Sonoma.

     

    Mike Dennis of Lincoln Truck and Auto in Bloomington donated our swap powertrain, a 4.8L engine and 4L60E transmission from a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado.

     

    This hands on project will challenge students to “think outside of the box” as it will involve custom metal

    fabrication and the integration and implementation of modern electrical control systems and electronic instrumentation.  The projected use for this vehicle is to teach pass thru programming in regards to powertrain management and advanced engine performance.
