So I was still having back feeding problems with the 2 step. Wired the 2 step and transbrake on their own separate relay and that took care of it.

Got the slicks on the car and they look great! Some videos testing out the 2 step and transbrake. enjoy!!!

So after a lot more research, I need to buy another power steering pump assembly. Gmparts direct has a part# for a zl1 which I bought and apparently all zl1s are electric ps. Sooo, f me lol. The correct pump is for a ctsv. I will be adding a complete parts list of 100% everything I used to convert to a lsa accessory drive.

Will be sending the torque converter back to get restalled yet again. Still planning on going to the track sunday for the last time this year.

Too big a converter?

Unfortunately. It rips down low but falls off on the mid range and top end. When I talked to them this time they told me I needed a 1b? Live and learn I guess

Mine is big but I don't run past a 1/4 anyways

In third gear the car just makes noise until I hit lockup then it starts accelerating again. I guess I'll deal with it being on the tight side vs ridiculous amounts of converter slip.

What size is it?

This is a very nice post. I have thought about doing a clone myself. Glad to see I wasn't crazy with my thoughts. Keep the posts coming!!

It's a 4b.

And my fuel pump decided to take a crap tonight for no reason. So now I have to weigh my options of meth injection and new pump vs squash or fore dual pumps and e85... decisions decisions

williamp78 11-07-2015 05:38 PM

Man if I was there I'd go E85 being boosted. Mine is a 3b but supposed to be 38-4K. Feels more like 36 ish. Anyways car looks slick man. Keep it up

Thought I'd give a small update, I got all of the metco idler pulleys, water pump, and ctsv power steering pump. Just need the ati damper to install it all.

Also took advantage of jokerz peformance black friday sale and bought a snout port. Will be pulling the blower off this week and sending it out.

Going to be sending the converter out to be restalled as a 1b.

Decided on a squash dual setup with a dsx flex fuel sensor.

Can't wait to see what the ported snout does. Just can't leave my car sit for a month. Will be watching!

Little update-

As you can see, the 2010 to 2012 take a different a/c compressor than the 13s and up and any year zl1(see bracket bolt pattern.) So I got stuck buying an a/c compressor, I moved my clutch over as it was the same clutch, I then realized it took new a/c lines and now I'm waiting on a new condensor as that is different as well.

I got everything mounted up except for the power steering pump and balancer, which I need to buy both.

I did decide to buy a nw 102 tb after seeing how my stock tb blade fits the ported snout. Will also need to buy a new coupler for the cai as the coupler needed is a 4" to 4" instead of the reducer 4" to 3.5".

Aside from those things, I need the flex fuel sensor, squash setup, and converter restall. Pretty minute list in the grand scheme of things. More updates to come!
