That’s a bad bitch!!!
He was welding on 2 different cars today and I was checking them out, looked good.Yeah i forgot, it was his kids communion today, and yes bob is the fab guy over there, hes a bad mofo with a welder/fabrication. Hes done a few things for me that other people that were supposedly "the best welders" couldnt do lol.
Congrats on the numbers!
Possibly, but I'm not sure. Would doing that tell him my converter is holding me back, if so then yes I guess lolCongrats!
I meant locking the converter at WOT in third on the dyno.
Yup, thats exactly what Joe said. Kinda sucks as I just had the trans out when the motor was out in December. I could have did it then, oh well. At least I'm not paying a shop to do it and double paying.Solid numbers Shawn. I bet that thing is a riot on the street!
I bet the converter that's in it isn't meant for wot lockup, that's why they're saying you need a better one.
A circle d triple disc would be excellent in that car.
Locking it up at wot would pick you up some real power on the dyno too.
Yes the reservoir for the intercooler was low, it runs on its own reservoir and pump. One of the hoses runs thru the inner wheel well. So we are assuming the body shop had to disconnect that hose to get the wheel well out. When they reconnected it, they probably just topped off the reservoir not realizing the car needed to run to cycle it thru and you need to watch it and top it off as it cycles thru. hence the reason the last couple of pulls he went to 6400rpmAwesome numbers! Did you figure out the IAT issues?
Meaning 2 different styles for the 01 Camaro or meaning 2 different operating temps?I recall there are at least two different LS thermostats.
Really and both part sizes are for the 5.72 different parts, size.
I would run a 160 if I were you.
Yeah ask him, I dug into it some more and seen nothing that indicates that. I see 2 different part numbers if you buy the housing with it, then it’s like a package deal.I remember my buddy saying the 5.7 is different I can ask him if you like.
I like the idea of running a 160, it will never run that cool ever. Some folks drill small holes around the perimeter to help with burping the air out of it.
So you might be on to something. I started digging more into it last night. Apparently they started using a new style water pump around 01-02 that does in fact have a different water pump. I couldnt find a different brand 160 in stock anywhere, but did find a 187. They are exactly the same except the height or depth whatever you want to call it. Also the 160 which is longer, already has holes drilled out on the bottom. pics to followdo you have the pn's? You are running an f-body wp?
No but would have been sooner than later. I started experiencing similar symptoms as when the o2 went bad on my Regal twice.Was it dead?
Did you see the tabs as well. The thread kinda drags on, the tabs give the details in short form lolFinally read thru this thing. You built one helluva show and go car. Mad props to you. I just can't fathom spending so much money into 1 car ..I'm just too cheap lol fortunately you'll make your money back if you decide to ever sell.
