I am using a LY6 6.0L out of a 2008 Silverado HD pickup and keeping VVT. I'm putting it in a 1994 Firebird Formula. Even though it's an iron block, I'm not too concerned with weight. 70-80lbs isn't a whole hell of a lot in the grand scheme of things.

My brother is doing the wiring for the e38 PCM to hook into the stock body harness. He's been wiring VVT-i Toyota motors for years and really knows his ****. All I plan on doing is using existing tuning software (HP Tuners) to tune with. I am using LS2 fuel rails with stock LS2 33# injectors, L76 intake etc.

VVT is like having your cake and eating it, too

i dont guess anyone can tell me what size injectors the L92 comes with, stock?

39#. The truck injectors wouldn't work with the L76 car intake I was using.

I finally got an event in, and I'll say it works as advertised. Its going to take me a while to get used to the new power curve, but it pretty much doesn't ever run out of power, regardless of where its spinning. It didn't blow up, didn't over heat, and kept good oil pressure all day long. To say I'm happy is an understatement.

Here is some on-board camera shots. I also added 315 R compound tires, so I was checking for tire rub.

Kinda off topic but do you have any shots from your garage with the car up in the air? -- I'm dropping the front suspension in my garage as well and was curious how you chose to lift the front end up and hold it up.

Thanks.

Nope, sorry. It was just sitting on a couple of big 'ol jack stands.

Here is a bit of a post script to the L92 / LS3 hybrid. The motor has been running well for nearly two years, with no complaints. So far, I've been autocrossing the car with an extra 1 - 1.5 quarts of oil, and along with the Improved Racing baffle, this has been enough. However, I want to start doing some track days / HPDEs, and its time to take care of the weak link in the motor: the wet sump oiling system.

The new setup will consist of a ARE 3 stage dry sump, 12 quart tank, and a Setrab oil cooler.
















My prime inspiration is coming from this build thread here: http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/index.p...opic=14181&hl=

Both the owner and builder of that car have been extremely helpful in supplying information on this upgrade.

Glad to hear it is holding together nicely!

On a side note, did you run the L92 oil pump on your motor or did you swap it? Was there any problems switching over to the fbody pan and eliminating the pressure relief that was in the truck pan?

Thanks!

I'm running a stock LS1 oil pump and F-body oil pan and had no problems.

O1badz28 looks like a nice set up. When you did your engine swap did you also have to change out the water pump on the engine? I'm looking at putting in an LS3 into my 98 so any advice would help. Also the 58 to 24 reluctor wheel converter, did that work out? And were you able to keep your stock instrument cluster working with it? Thanks!

Looks like a serious upgrade. How much more hp will that dry sump suck?

Its using all LS1 (f-body) accessories. The Lingenfelter box and all of the various harnesses worked out fine, I haven't had any trouble out of them in the past couple of years. I still have the stock instrument cluster. It runs like it left the factory that way, and you have a hard time telling the difference between the LS1 and the LS3 except for the exhaust note and the physical differences in the engines.

ARE told me it would add 40 bhp. I suspect most of that is probably from the ATI damper, but they weren't specific.

Yes, although I'm running 39 pound FAST injectors. The L92 truck injectors didn't fit after I switched from the truck manifold.

I realize this is an old thread... here goes nothing.

I'm wrapping up a similar swap on a '99 SS. It's become obvious the stock airbox is a restriction. What did you do for a CAI on your build?

I'm still around (and so is the car) I just don't come on here much these days.

Its some random 3rd party aftermarket lid that I swapped with some guy on FRRAX - I'm not sure what brand it even is. The old dyno numbers were with an SLP lid.

It probably is limiting performance, but going to another CAI just hasn't been much of a priority.

Since my post I've been steered towards this unit with the TSP MAF by a trusted tuner.

I don't have any data on it right now though.

If you don't mind, update this thread or shoot me a PM with your data when you finish. I've been eyeballing that lid.
