i got a question for you guys about to expect out a 5.3 with ls6 cam, ls6 heads and a ls6 intake took to hagadorne to get it cleaned up.it also has hypertunic rods with clevite bearings, with dish piston on a rebuilt bottom end and i will be runing true daul exhaust i am new to the ls i would built a 6.0 but already spent the money in this build

anyone know how to tune out the EGR crap? This damn Bravada keeps throwing an evaporator code. I need all the powah this ole 4.3 can give... lol

Ummmm. Look in your sig silly.

:lol:

I licensed my 2000 s10 the other day to get familiarized with the program. pretty simple to eliminate stuff. Although the computer on this truck seems rather limited. Guess cause its a manual and V6.

Should be a runner. My dad's friend has that exact setup in a 68 camaro. It's a fun, dependable, cruiser for him and will surprise some folks if they think its just a tree fitty :D

They say a poor craftsman blames his tools.
Anybody ever measured to see if their clutch needs a shim?
My Harbor Freight dial caliper may not be up for the job. Or it could be operator error.
I'm not precise of a guy.
I watched the Spec video and his straight edge didn't look all that secure.
The idea is that you measure from the bearing to the torque tube, then from the bell housing to the clutch fingers. Subtract the two to get the gap.
I've done this 3 times and got 3 different measurements.

That's awesome news Johnny.

I'm not sure about using a tape measure on something that's measured in hundredths and thousandths of an inch.

I've got a dentist appointment this afternoon, but after that I'm gonna go buy a damned digital caliper and see if I can figure this shit out.
I need to know ASAP so that I can go ahead and order the shim that I need, if I need one.

Hey guys,

I am looking for a set of 243 or 799 casting heads for my 99 FRC vette.

I have a Ls6 intake complete with fuel rails and injectors I would be willing to trade for the right set of heads, or pay cash.

Also, I guess there is a car show off of 70th street this weekend in Shreveport if anyone wants to go.

I got just the t top seal. Both were about $70 shipped from Rick's Camaros. Easy to install, just four screws. Used a flat head to push them in place. I had to do it twice to get them to seal right on the edges, but it wasn't bad. Took me about an hour to get it perfect. I'm gonna spray it at the car wash tomorrow to test them out.

I wasn't able to make it this morning. My tune still isn't right and puts it in REP mode andI'm waiting on a new MAP sensor to hopefully cure the issue. While I'm waiting, I went ahead and ordered new pushrods and troubleshot a couple little leaks.

Steve, I am going to shoot you a PM just to maybe get a new perspective on a little issue.

Johnny-LT1-runner
03-18-2012, 09:18 AM
So I'm 6 miles from home and my voltage starts acting funny. It'll act like it's not charging then I can get on it an it goes back up, and letting off also does the same thing. I drove 300 miles yesterday and not a problem out of it. I'm tapped into the 5v IAT sensor for power, is that a reliable source? Should I draw from the TPS instead? This shit is getting stupid.

01ssreda4
03-18-2012, 09:35 AM
You know what I think the fix is......12v source with a resistor bumping the voltage down some instead of using a pre-existing sensor power source. Its the only permanent fix. I'd also like to know the usable voltage that the regulator would need to fully excite without "over exciting." That sounded dirty.....

Johnny-LT1-runner
03-18-2012, 10:34 AM
From what I've been reading it's anywhere between 4v and 9v. Another problem is we were already short two 12 v sources, so where do we pull another one from? Fuse box?

No, spun a rod bearing. I think the damage started when I threw a belt the other day and over heated it pretty bad. I finished it off at the track. The motor always had low oil pressure issues, now I know why.

mconway68w
03-20-2012, 08:30 PM
Turns out coolant was never low. It was heat from the friction of the spun bearing at the track. It wasn't until the car was cold later that night that I could hear the knocking. When I cranked it in the morning, it was unbearable.

Pipes in south shreveport has a 99 camaro, but after my deer incident, I pretty much mauled that car lol. It does have manual seats though and I'm thinking about goin and getting the seat racks off it. I need to go check out that firebird. I still need some interior pieces.

As an FYI, the manual track isn't any lighter then the power setup. They are both heavy as shit. I did a power seat delete and quickly realized that weight savings just wasn't in the cards. I still have my old power setup if you need it for repairs.

I get pretty bored here at work, so I've been making something this past week.
Originally It fired rubber bands, then paperclips, and today I present the new ammo.

The laser sighted rubber band gun. A complex array of rubber bands, metal clips, plastic rulers, and of course LASERS.

The 8 bladed exacto knife ninja star. Capable of burying itself into a wall, or anything else for that matter, at a minimum distance of 25 feet.
It is highly accurate and poses extreme risk of injury to the operator if handled carelessly.

Hi everyone
Nice board; and looks to be some cool, knowledgable people here who have some great rides(all of them faster than my slow poopoo car, lol).
My car is a '99Z, it's very near stock and only 40k miles on it.

I recognize some of the screennames here from my old LS1/LS2.com days years ago.
I've been out of the car scene for a while and my car isn't running atm, but hope to be going again in the future.

I'm a S'port native and have been to RRR several times, d'bottom, ShrCity, etc. to watch races and just hang. My dad is an old school hotrod mechanic & racer from way back so I have a little experience and info on cars in general.

Altho I don't have weekends off of work, I hope to get out and meet some folks here when I can and learn a little more.

We did the same, we'd all go down bottom and get crazy. I missed out on up top, they closed it right when I started going down bottom. The GM plant was a perfect spot to drag. Slack Road sounds familiar, but I can't remember it, too many beers back then, lol. I was one of the few that made it out of there the last night down bottom was opened. I still feel bad for that one dude that died. I don't even know what happened to the other dude.
