Starting LSA conversion

well I went ahead and pulled the trigger. Bought a nice used LSA lower unit and ordered the conversion kit from Andy a ADM. Ive also ordered a new ZL1 fuel pump, magnuson heat exchanger for the camaro, and FIC 72lb injectors. Of course the injectors are 72lb@ 3bar, so will actually be 81lb@4 bar on my car. Im keeping my cam I have now and see how wel it does. it has 0 deg of overlap and is on a 114+4 lsa, so i think it will be fine. Went ahead and ought injectors that I had room to grow into to! I forsee several pulley changes. Ill update thread as I progress.

Congrats! A6 or M6?

LSA on the cam may be tight. I'm 112 and the idle and cold start is rough. Vacuum is low on startup and brake peddle is hard..

Good luck!

+1!

Hope my build thread helps. This one should be an easier one than mine!

I experimented on mine and will probably do a few more just for my education.

Can't wait to see this one...

all my parts are here, but im super bummed. The bearings in the snout of the blower I purchased are bad and are making noise. Hope this is an easy fix. Anyone have an idea of who to contact to get them replaced?

I thought those could be repacked with the 'blue' lube. Andy will know if that may work. Also, there is a thread on how to update the coupler etc. it may also have some info...
