91 s10 I'm picking away at. Where I'm at right now. Need to step up my return line and figure out my headlight switch wiring which is killing me. 5.3/th350 cam and headers and 3600 stall. Got some welds sitting on the side waiting for it.

Your fuel system at the tank is very nicely done. I am not a fan of the aluminum line I think I see running through the chassis, but nice work.

Oh yeah oil filter, didn't have access to fittings over the weekend so just used some hydraulic fittings that were to short. And the fram will be gone this week. But how are you guys putting mechanical water temp gauges on these? Is there an adaptor I need to buy? Thanks for the comments not a huge poster on the forum but lots of lurking and research.

Mine are 1 5/8, I bought the complete kit new but second hand. I'm having a battle with the steering shaft even with their mount kit.

i had to move my steering column down about 3/4". it got easier when i figured out to take the collector off and then hammer it on with a block of wood once all the pipes were in place. the ceramic coating made it a pain in the ass to slide the collector on and off but i got it. check out the vids i posted in the carb and conversion section.

Is that a 10 micron Jegs filter on the inlet to the pump? A good bit finer than you need on a pump inlet, but the way you have everything arranged it should work well.

As for mechanical temp sensors there are multiple active threads talking about that. You need to build your own adapter, either in a radiator hose, by tapping into the water pump or by drilling and tapping the block heater plug. Sort of hard to fit the large mechanical senders.

Well truck wouldnt move, although the drivetrain drove in on it's own. Checked line pressure it was good. Talked to a few local shops and a buddy over it. Decided to tackle my first tranny rebuild at that point. Started on Friday. Had it in sat morning with failure. Checked line pressure and had nothing. Swapped pumps with a parts tranny I had still nothing. So off came the pan, find out the culprit was a few loose bolts on the valve body. Now I'm back in action. Just gotta find the right universal joints for the steering shaft.

Won't lie I downloaded a episode of muscle car on my iPad and surfed some YouTube for how-to's. My current issue is fowling the plugs within 5 minutes. So gonna add some grounds and pick-up a USB-serial cord and get that in check before I ask to many questions. Most f my stuff is second hand, so no manuals or specs for me

dr.dub
06-06-2012, 03:21 AM
Well within 5 minutes it would fowl plugs and stop running had to drop oil do to fuel mixing in it. Got the laptop sorted out and still fouled plugs and exhaust was eye burning. Double checked my grounds and added another one. Holy shit the idle smoothed out and exhaust smelt better. Just to figure out how to use the map graph now

Picked the truck up as a roller(500), the drivetrain was in my Mazda b2200 before this but it was a poor chassis. I scored the intake and msd and oil pan off a buddy who was going turbo(600). He found me the cam spring pushrods off one of his buddy's(650) Motor came from a wrecker 200,000kms was a good deal. The mount kit and headers from brp were from a guy who wasn't able to use them for his project scored them for 650. Also got a meziere water pump second hand I decided not to use. Tranny was $20 another 240 after rebuild. Tci flex plate was used cause it was on hand late at night. stall regulator and fuel pump was all from jegs. Rad came from eBay $140. Bought all my an fitting locally but the line came from eBay. So far it's cost me around 5000 with getting mostly deals. With no deals I wouldn't wanna know. The an lines and fittings cost me alot more then I was expecting.

Not sure on the setup your after but if drag is it..i hope u got calverts split mono drop leafs..u would want them hands down..i would use calvert split monos,caltraks an the ranchero adj rear shocks ..up front would be some moog v6 springs an some 90/10..u would be good to go then an hook in dirt with 10 yr old weathered slicks

dr.dub
06-23-2012, 08:17 PM
It's got drag shocks all the around now and moroso springs up front, with 2" drop spindles. Mostly drag racing I would say. But with the split mono's do you just adjust ride height with the overlap? Would like to get a motor to handle more nitrous down the road. I have a spare 5.3 that needs a rebuild, but once again I'm fairly new to the lsx's world.

suicidal racing
06-24-2012, 06:39 AM
you can get split monos from calvert that are reg ride height or drop.the spring is designed for drag racing..if u want to use your stock springs..then you could always pull a leaf..a pulled leaf on my 95 s10 got me 1.5" of drop..its a mini truck deal though..

the reg split monos might drop the truck down some also alone..best bet would be to call calvert an talk to them..

if u want to find some good info you can go to google an type in this site:yellowbullet.com s10..then look threw all the s10 posts..theres a number of them in the stock suspension section on the bullet..you can then see different setups and such..or try s10racer.com


im sure you have heard of bobby flippin if your a s10 drag guy..heres a pic of his suspension..pics old..but he was going high teens an 1.20 60ft when it was taken..hes been 1.14 now..but it looks like he has 1" drop blocks in the pic..his rear setup at the time was caltraks,split monos and qa1 dbl adj shock..hes on 275s in the pic

If you are scared of blocks You can make a set out of 2x2 Tbg . Some alum. Blocks will fold up on you under a load. I found out the hard way on national TV Pinks All Out Belle Rose La. No Problem . I left on both kits in my Blue Blazer and Folded the pads and blocks as well as Broke the pinion yoke. I replaced them with 2x2 tbg and never had issues after that.:cheers:

def dig the build man..makes me want a gen 1 dime..lil tip ditch the 2 90s in the pic your killing the flow and making the pump work harder having to draw threw the filter and the 90s..i would just move the filter left an stick a straight line between:cheers:

dr.dub
06-25-2012, 10:42 AM
I wanted to flip the pump upside down but couldn't find any info on running them inverted. As well is there much info out there about flow rates and loss of flow with 90's? I can't get my fuel regulator below 7. Which is a tad high but I have no control below it. I ran 3/8 aluminum line which should be fine according to instructions. -6 lines and elbow for 24" under the hood. I was tossing around the idea of going to -8 for the return to 3/8 line and see if that helped return flow?

NGO big updates still has a horrible stutter from 1500-3500. Summer was a wash working 70hr work weeks almost every weekd had 10 days off and 11 the next. But I build a new toy box so my dad could have his back....

So 35x22 4"slab 8" footings 10' ceilings with a 20x8 back door to my alley and a 8x9 front door to driveway so I can get my new 3500 inside. The few days I had off sucked my bank dry building this. Plus the city inspector came out and dinged me for no railings on my deck. Plus I stripped the whole front yard down releveled it and put new sod down with underground sprinkles. So once man cave complete it's install time.

Sounds like it will be stripped right down powder coated and painted and hopefully ready for next year

Rather buy the adapters for 60$ with hardware.

So I got a 6L block I'm looking for some advice on what size motor to build and what I should stuff in it for parts. I picked up some trickflow heads for this combo, forget which set I have off have but they came off a boosted motor and was told they would suit a n/a much better. Thinking 408 but not sure it's mostly gonna be a Friday night special truck after this. I'll take any suggestions.

How hard you want to run? How much you want to spend? 6.0 can be built cheaper, 408 will go faster.

NGO big updates still has a horrible stutter from 1500-3500. Summer was a wash working 70hr work weeks almost every weekd had 10 days off and 11 the next. But I build a new toy box so my dad could have his back....

So 35x22 4"slab 8" footings 10' ceilings with a 20x8 back door to my alley and a 8x9 front door to driveway so I can get my new 3500 inside. The few days I had off sucked my bank dry building this. Plus the city inspector came out and dinged me for no railings on my deck. Plus I stripped the whole front yard down releveled it and put new sod down with underground sprinkles. So once man cave complete it's install time.

Lol never noticed that was just test fitting I didn't have the proper lugs at the time. Well everybody has there preferred combo. I have a local buddy helping me out with most of it now. Just curious what some guys can suggest, in out of my element when it comes to picking parts for a combo. Goals? Hmmmm I have nitrous kits trickflow 235 heads and just don't wanna be the slowest guy on Friday nights. It won't see highway driving just beat on in the city. And I apologize for the lack of pics but working 6days a week 1200kms from home has slowed my wrenching time. Should see my house in march I'm hoping.

i'm building a similar combo. s10 - LS2 short block with decked TFS225 heads. i went with a 236/242 110+4 cam and had to flycut the pistons. all depends on how much money you want to spend!

So I had a few weeks to play on the garage during break up. Went to install my mini spool and had the wrong splines, so that got welded. Found out gears were 3.41 in it. My only problem is it has a horrible stutter between 2-3700. I had a 770 street avenger on it but it had vaccine secondary's and with the cam I thought was the issue. I now have a qft 750 mech sec. But I'm still getting a horrible stutter below 3k, and it's running rich. The qft came with 72 primary jets and 84 in the back. I had a buddy come over and my timing with map was out to lunch so he brought it back which helped abit. I've put 68 in the mains and moved the 72 to the rear and it still sputters below 3 and runs pig rich still. Power valve is a 6.5. The stall is a jegs 3600 8" I believe and I can't get it to flash over 1800. Really frustrating. But after 3000rpm it's fun as hell gets a little squirmy in second at times but the bottem end is pissing me off

That's how she gets rocked till I get the bugs worked out.

Floats set right? Start at the start I say. Starting with the motor (so I don't have to search forever) what's your setup?

Ok it's a 5.3 out of a 04 Tahoe with .560 cam.(ill have to dig up the full specs) it was suppose to be more nitrous friendly. Did Pushrods and springs. Brp 1 5/8 mid length headers. Aero motive 11213 pump and 13301 regulator. 3/8 pressure line and 6ft of 3/8 then -8 on return. Pressure sits around 6.5-7psi at idle. I'm running a Vic jr intake and mad 6010 with Ngk tr5 plugs. And then the qft carb. Which out of the box made my eyes water instantly after I put it on.

Sounds like you need to tweak your IFR and idle air bleeds, but you need to know which way to go first.

Start with that. No sense chasing your tail guessing. Let us know what you find when it gets installed and we will have a better chance of figurin it out
