With how cheap these motors are, especially older gen 3's, which can be found with a pcm and a whole harness most times, I went with the HP tuners route right out of the gate. I figured if I broke...

Dude you are a total animal. I can't believe you got that all done in a day. What bounced around in that cylinder? Spark plug end bust off? At least you had the trusty old 6.0 laying around haha. ...

I was saying more along the lines of an entirely extra 5.3 or whatever motor really, since yours is already torn down. A lot of people have great luck with just throwing in a junkyard motor and...

Me personally, I would just throw whatever crap 5.3 you can in it and get it running. I'd build yourself a sick motor once you get everything together for the turbo setup. I'd go sloppy style for...

I'll say it again.... WOW. A 9.8 with a cammed gen 3 4.8 and a gt45 turbo. You really can't ask for more from a cheap combo. Just so awesome I can't get over it. Makes me want to build a...

dude! Thatís awesome! A 9 second pass with a gen 3 4.8 with a cam and a gt45 is seriously amazing. That really shows crazy potential for a crappy gt45. What about just a cast s475? 400 bucks and itís...

Since the 3650 had an integrated bellhousing Iím imagining like the cd009 it would have to be cut off and then an adapter added. The clutch is a pull style while gm is a push style so it would have...

i was in a similar situation when I first did my swap. To the best of my knowledge there isnít any good way (or any way really) to keep a 3650 with an ls swap. If theyíve done much since I looked a...

In that case I guess cleaning it out wouldn't be the worst idea. HD2 kit also not a bad idea. DON'T sell it! Just finish it you'll be happy you did everytime you mash that pedal down to the floor...

I think pushing that gt45 to the limit is a good idea and also an interesting experiment. I'm curious to see the limits of these things. Did you ever buy hptuners to try your hand at tuning at the...

Wow those are some seriously respectable numbers. What is done to your motor? What kind of psi does that 3.4 make on your combo? I'm excited to play with it. I've enjoyed the turbo stuff that...

I totally disagree. If you have a cd009 to start with then yeah, go for it. But for 1700 bucks I'd go with the t56 all day long. As far as availability, yes they are a bit more common but people...

You have a build thread? If you don't definitely start one I love z32s it's on my list for my next swap. I'd love to see one getting done before I do one. Good luck.

I got a kit from Gforce. Haven't installed it yet. It was 600 I think but cheaper than a t56. They are the cheapest kit I've seen so far.
