My current idea is to re install the 6060 Transmission and the Lingenfleter GT11 camshaft. I need to quiet the car down and make it docile so I would also install some high flow cats from Kooks. If all that works I would then install the 3.70 rear carrier unit and drive the car.

I want to get a custom AC pressure line fabbed so I can re install the AC compressor.

I talked to Andy at ADM about some parts. He brought up their CTS-V brake install and that sounds cool.

So many options, so little $$$$$ LOL

So... you're NOT getting rid of the car?...

Not that I know you, but I had no idea you were that versed in ECUs. Maybe you should tune cars for a living

LOL, well I have been tuning EFI systems for over 20 years. At one time I tuned for others but I don't do that very often. I am SCT dealer and have both EFI Live and HP Tuners. I have tuned a ton of stand alone race type systems. I do a lot of work on the engine dyno also.
I am working with Holley on their new Dominator EFI System. Soon to be installed on my LSX Nova.

I have learned a ton about the GM ECU's in the past several years. Still a lot to learn.
One of my goals while working with GMPP was to share what I am able to learn on these projects. Hopefully to make it easier for others to enjoy thier performance upgrades.

I am not in business so I am not trying to sell parts or services. I do have favorites though

No wonder!!! I had no idea. Regardless - that's still a great job. So - is there going to be much of a benefit of switching over to like a FAST system, or something along those lines, or is this E38 going to be good?

Damn, I wish we could have stolen you while doing the SST Camaro computers & wiring harnesses. It is done now, but getting diagrams and integrating multiple ECU's together was a bear.



Next time we are just going to kidnap Uncle Robin...

Thanks for the info on the heat exchanger. When you said you were using the Lingenfelter unit and were still heat soaking, it seemed odd. On other forums people mentioned not properly bleeding the system and having poor results.

Yep, And we knew that when we filled the system the first time. No mater how good we thought it was free from air it was not. Again tank would have solved that problem. I have noticed some of the tanks on other cars are between the engine and the radiator. I have a Moroso tank for a GT500 that we tried to adapt. No such luck.

It's works pretty well now

Too bad the car was not baselined with the stock LSA motor at the track. We would have gotten an idea of how the Z28 would run

The article seems to say that the car has 515 WHP? How can only that much HP launch a 4000lb car into the 10 second range?

I think 515WHP was the all motor combo. They did a ton of stuff to that car and I think it changed motors 3 times.

Well the GM Performance Parts LSA Crate engine is about 14,900.
THe custom 4L80E and conversion parts adds another 6300.
THe Kooks Exhaust lists for 2400, the GMPP Heads about 1250
The Components from Lingenfelter added another 4200.
Lunati cam was 350, Valve Springs were 400 with Ti retainers. Pushrods were
230, Extra rear wheels and drag radials added another 900.
The modifications to the intercooler top were done by a friend.

Last time on the dyno it made 594 at the wheels. With the losses through the 4L80E that should be about 700 at the crankshaft.

With all the improvements I need to hit the dyno again

Yep, with the first mods and a little juice it was 515.

Only changed the engine once.
2 Exhaust systems
3 Cams
3 Clutches
3 Different Cold Air Systems
3 Sets of rear tires

Nitrous once, Blower Now, Started as a 6 Speed Manual, Now a 4 Speed Auto.
