Anyway, got it running and driving , but, having some problems getting the ABS to work without flashing codes and working erractically.
Do you have any specifics on your ABS problem? Have you pulled the codes with a scanner? What PCM and wireing harness configuration did you use to run the motor? This very well could be an incompatibility beteen the Colorado's gauge cluster, body control module, your upgraded PCM, wiring harness pin outs or any mix of the above.
Excellent swap by the way. Would you mind offering up a few juicy details about how it drives after the LS1 install?
What rear axle do these trucks have? I was told that was the reason that the S10 never got a V8 (not even a 4.3L L99 or 5.0L L30)
the s10 has the same rear as the fbodies, its a 7.5". i'm not sure about the colorado's. the 4x4 s10's have the 8.5. i did the ls1 swap with my s10. i bought the carrier and gears out of a ws6 and swapped them out. i went from a 4:10 open to a 3:42 limited slip.
I have just bought a colorado 3.5 reg cab auto there are no up grades for this thing. Iwould be wondering if you know any body that has one that has any thing done to it besides yours. Also how these things run E.Ts. how yours runs with a ls1 and if it will still will be able to go to the bad guys at the D.M.V. mine is my daily driver so I have to keep it smog leigal.I have seen in sport truck mag a canyon with a turbo, thats cool with 350horse 350tq.
I guess runs mid 13's.Any more colorados or canyons out there!
Sorry I didn't get back to anyone sooner,but trying to get all the bugs out. First of all it is a 1999 camaro ls1 with 6 speed trans, made all my own mounts, used stock driveshaft, my own custom exhaust. Got a painless harness and a 1998 pcm, The truck computer didn't like this idea at all, so I said you don't like the ride, get off. I had to rewire the dash and A/C controls, starting system and added my own gauges. Used an aluminum radiator and an electic fan (in front) and the rest will be history. It goes like crazy, lots of wheel hop ( working on that ) gas mileage ain't that great, but when I learn to keep my foot out of it , or my first ticket, I assume it probably will get better, was going to Superchevy this weekend but the kid had to work. Well that's about it, so good luck to anyone who is crazy enough to try this on such a new vehicle, OOOh I forgot I live in a area where the man doesn't sniff tailpipes.
