I like working on it, but I hate HAVING to work on it to keep it on the road. Last month it was o2 sensors, axle bearings, oil change. This month it's going to be transmission mount, spark plugs (pretty sure my bad o2's fouled a few plugs), and transmission fluid change. In a one car garage. Shoot me now.
transmission mount shoulda been one of your first mods/repairs/upgrades/whatever.

what all is it doing now?

yeah. I'm just trying to spec you out parts, and I got off early yesterday so I didnt do much of anything.

first off skip the roller tip rockers, either go full roller or leave the stockers, save the money for the pushrods and spend it on rockers. that cam seems overpriced IMO. IIRC, you can get a custom grind for ~$350 or so. stock pushrods are capable of .650 lift, so that money could be spent elsewhere

Yeah, but doesn't the Crane 227 hold the cam only record for LT1s? That was the main reason I was looking at it. Sure, its a bit more expensive but it seems to be a proven part.

As for pushrods, I don't mind reusing the stocks I just figured since I was thinking of upping the rev-limiter to 6500 and the car has 114xxx on it, I might want to look into hardened pushrods. I think I might remove the crank from the parts list also though because upon further consideration, an aftermarket cast crank wouldn't be any better than the stock crank and I'd have to get it balanced anyway. Might as well just reuse the stocker.

P.S. - I can get the cam here for 335, which seems to be as good a deal as any of the other cams.

I thought I had taught you better than that. is your car going to be the new LT1 cam only record holder? the 227 is a good cam, in fact its one of the best OTC cams you can find. but remember that just because it works in a pure track car doesnt mean it will work as well for a weekend warrior dd

As for the pushrods, IIRC, 93 and 94’s came stock with hardened pushrods to begin with. And as far as hardened, the only real benefit for hardened pushrods is if you are running guideplates. Because the pushrod hardening is to keep the outside of the rod from grinding away to nothing against guideplates with NSA rockers.

you can up the rev limiter to 7k if you want. the stock bottom end of these cars is twice as strong as most people give it credit for.

Here’s what I was running in my 94Z with 12.5 cr
230 / 240 - .544/.576 - 110 LSA
with a stalled A4, full bolt-ons, handported heads/intake, and some spray
IIRC, I paid around $350 for that cam (somewhat custom grind) 4 years ago


another option
http://www.lingenfelter.com/sites/li...mationv1.3.pdf


and another option is Comp Cams XE 230/236 if you can find it. I've seen some here an there used go for less than $200



also, you need to get some good springs/hardware to compliment the cam as well. I was running 918's for a while till they started having failures (not my personal ones, but Comp started farming out the manufacture of their springs and less quality came about). I switched to PAC 1518s that are good to .650 lift. the 1218s are good to about .600 lift and the 918's are about .625 lift.

I didn't see anything listed on the springs you had selected on what their max lift was.

also... you should do this in the 4th gen section. lol

and find some heads or have yours ported to maximize the cam.

I don't want anything too large cam-wise. I'll look into that LPE cam. As for the springs, I found them in this thread: http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/lt1-lt...ion-guide.html

Not sure on their max lift. I'll look that up also.

I'm not wanting you to go with the biggest donkey di*k cam you can. even mine wasn't the biggest around. mine was set up for 40/60 split of track and dd. tho it was nicknamed the ThunderFu*k II cam...lmao

you have the benefit of the m6 that you dont have to fight as hard for idle characteristics or cam surge with a converter.

Also, that LPE cam looks like it would work as well. Also, those crane springs have an install height of 1.750 and a coil bind of 1.080, so they should be good for at least .600 or .650 of lift. Since I wouldn't be running anywhere close to that, they should be fine.

Zabo's '00 T/A Build Thread

With the resurrection over, I decided to have the previous thread locked and relaunch the build thread in this thread.



Long short of my ownership:

- Found it wandering lots back in June 2010
- Placed a deposit, and swept it off the lot within 5 days of it's arrival there.
- Said dealership was a Ford stealership
- Needed Brakes and other minor work from sitting (29,718 miles)
- Drove trouble free (and learned to drive stick in the process) THROUGH THE WINTER of 2010/2011
- April 2, 2011 the car was totaled in a drag racing accident (sanctioned IHRA track).
- Secured a loan on the verge of bankrupting myself and rebuilt the car.
- Bill: $10,300; paid $10,395 for the car.
- Replaced door emblems with NOS 1998 Sport Gold Metallic emblems
- Rear bumper cover given the CETA (Collectors Edition Trans Am) blackout treatment
- Replaced the factory rear after discovering that the Torsen was KIA 10/2011
- Installed WS6 short stick, custom made 'Bandit shifter knob' from a 1977 Special Edition Trans Am, and TSB Rumbler Exhaust
- Purchased and installed AP tips, tucked TSP to gain a few inches in clearance
- Dropped the car off at Backstreet Performance in Medina and had the LTs and ORY installed, as well as the EGR pulled. Had them also reset the car for the lack of EGR/Cats/O2s

To do list:

- Weld up Cutout section and pick up/wire up an electric valve
- Purchase/install a Y pipe brace
- Install Prothanes
- Get a Daily Driver!
- GET A BETTER PAYING JOB!
- Pick up a set of Speedlines and widen rears to 11" for 315 rears
- Remount old tires on current PA6s for spare/storage use
- Put it away..

Down the road a few years:

- Strip the whole car
- Reweld the core support ('05 accident)
- Realign/Reweld (4/2/11 accident)
- Build/Swap the rear for road racing
- Build the transmission
- Respray in a custom factory Maple Red/Gold Flake mix
- Overhaul/breakdown and clean engine

And Pictures:

I haven never seen and LS1 car in a junkyard here. I'd be in heaven if I did, I'd pull so many parts since they have no idea what any of them are worth.

Where do you think my rear quarter and door came from? Actually didn't cost all that much considering.. wish I should have asked whether the door was a '00 or '01 door. I know the Fender was a '98 (still had the Delco/Monsoon amp in it too).

But knowing some yards around here.. they DO know what they're worth, and won't part out a complete engine. Blown or not. Blown 3.8 (rod through block) still wanted 1000 bucks! 2300 bucks for a complete running engine with 140K miles. A friggin V6! Yeah, you may have a stroke now.

Probably could have gotten 5K easy out of my engine/trans if I hadn't saved the car. Oh well.. trying to transplant it into a third gen would have been hell.

But knowing some yards around here.. they DO know what they're worth, and won't part out a complete engine. Blown or not. Blown 3.8 (rod through block) still wanted 1000 bucks! 2300 bucks for a complete running engine with 140K miles. A friggin V6! Yeah, you may have a stroke now.

Probably could have gotten 5K easy out of my engine/trans if I hadn't saved the car. Oh well.. trying to transplant it into a third gen would have been hell.

That would have been the major BS. 20/20.. probably would have cost me less too. But eh, live and learn. If she gets hit any harder by an idiot (it happens..) I know for a bonafide fact that everything driveline is peachy and ready for plug and play.

Ok.. so with my bills planned out yet again (lay off season baby!) I'm gonna start budgeting my next mod.

Should I:

- Y pipe and run it off the stock Cats (want to maintain almost stock backpresure but prep for possible race cats and LTs)
- LTs bolted up to stock Y (if thats even possible..)
- Something else..?

i went with the SLP 2.5 inch y-pipe that mates to the stock cats. when i do headers/high flows i will need to change the y-pipe. if you aren't planning on headers/high flows for a while i would get the SLP y like i did, it is real nice.

Kinda plan on doing the whole mess at once. Which was how one of the club members did it to the tune of 1500 shipped. He just ran it without O2 sensors for a month because the extensions for the harness were out of stock at Kooks for some reason. :/

Could always just go full TSP from manifolds to the tail pipes and call it a day. Pull my whole mess, get what I need welded and then respray it with header paint again since it already just looks badass totally blacked out under there.

I do not know of any headers that mount to stock cats, but I haven't ever looked at the shorties. SLP is the only one I know of that sells a Y like that.

I'm just speaking from experience, never seen an LS1 in a junkyard around here. Much less being lucky enough to get there before it's stripped. Had 94' formula show up at one and in 3 days the motor was gone and most of the interior. Stuff goes fast around here.
