Agreed that's a possible cause.

I would also check the wiring to the sensor and the plug too. A frayed wire or damaged plug could cause the same sort of issue. Step-son & I sorted out a TPI Z28...

Why 20w-50 in a stock bottom end engine? Valvoline is excellent oil but that's not the recommend weight oil. The factory didn't set up the bearing clearances for that thick...

Sharp looking car! C5R block - BES definitely cool stuff in my book.


Really hard to put a price on the car. Maybe $20,000 with the right buyer. Lot of folks are afraid of heavily mod'd cars.

It is good being back as a regular again since 2015. However the early days on LS1Tech in 2001 - 2003 were incredible. Even old LS1.com was pretty good between 1998-2001 too.

No idea G, I'm pretty shocked Futral was banned.
I think the shop flooded one year due to a Hurricane but Futral recovered.

Between 2010 - 2014 I was seldom on LS1TECH

Pounds also depends on what fuel pressure is used. I think Ford does ~43 pounds and GM LS is 58-60 pounds. You may want to to do more research.
