ok guys so im pretty new to owning an ls1 and i picked up a 99 camaro motor off craigslist for $1500 with 80k ish miles im going to be putting it in a 2000 zr2 blazer but before i do that i will need to get a stock throttle body and maf which brings me to my question are all ls mafs and tbs compatible with each other? and will any other ls tbs bolt up to the ls1 intake? if upgrading the intake which ls intake works best with a stock 5.7 ls1?
If you choose to use anything other than the 3 wire maf if your using the 99 camaro PCM dont forget to have the proper maf table flashed into the pcm.
If you need a plug and play harness for your application I can acconmodate you on that.
The LS6 intake is a great mod. The ls1 drive by cable throttle bodies are all compatible. You can even use the truck throttle body on the car intake. But you should be able to find a throttle body for a reasonable price, they are a dime a dozen.
oh so i guess ill need to see what set up comes on the current performance wiring harness before i look for a maf but for some reason i want to say its going to be a 5 pin and its the same as a 02 silverado? i maybe wrong tho i cant remember but if it is a 5 pin will i have to find a specific model tb or are they all the same as long as its a ls1 tb?
if i were to do the ls6 intake at a later time will the ls1 tb bolt up im just curious cause as far as i can tell from pics the ls2 intake looks like its set up different so i wasnt sure if they were all a little different
ls2 throttle body won't work. It's a 4 bolt, a ls6 intake is a 3 bolt intake. Most all truck intakes were 3 bolt until 04+ when they started to do drive by wire, then they went 4 bolt intakes.
If you need any help I have done this swap in my 2003 zr2 with a lq9. PM me if you have any questions, lucky for you you can now buy mounts/headers/oilpan from CPW, when I did my swap there was nothing available for me.
Here's my swap on zr2usa: you may want to consider posting there or on s10 forum, they can help you more.
i have lurked the hell out of your build lol along with the others on zr2usa but i cant get them to approve my registration i have applied and sent the picture but nothing ive even talked to kevin to try and find out what i was doing wrong with no resolve all your info was very helpful i couldnt see the pics since im not a member but between your build and mikes 5.7 build you guys gave me the confidence to give it a shot
