Sacrifice high end horse power for more low end torque. On the street torque is more valuable to me. I like stoplight to stoplight action

Today hed to rerout a few wires, got to excided yesterday. Finally all wires on the drivers side of the engine bay are either terminated or next to their final location. Split loom secured and tidied up as well. Radiator, fan, and shroud are in for test fit. Put air intake system is in for test fit as well. Still plenty to do but gaining ground

Just wondered if it was steel or aluminum. I used PVC once and the heat and pressure from the clamp deformed it. That was back in the days before the Internet when it was harder to find stuff.

Almost there, with these projects, you end up backing up 3 times just to move to the next phase

Replaced module and coil, still no life. Then today I found my mistake, had the cam and crank sensors wired for LS2 sensor stratagy instead of vortec sensor stratagy, and she lit right off. Im guessing that we cant upload videos???

You and me both!!! desktop dyno is predicting crazy numbers. That are actually hard to believe. But, it all is over by 5800, so maybe not to far off. I will say if it is 10% high "desktop" I'll be very pleased. I did just get off of the phone with the Dyno shop, I like his approach, so he's got the job when I'm ready to get serious. If you saw the dyno sheet from the other Dyno shop, stock long block 96 LT1 shorty headers, CIA, and TPI, put 329 ftlb on the ground. This one I added lunati cam and 1.6 rockers 276/286 advertised duration .503 lift on 1.5 rockers, should net 530 on 1.6 rockers, and mid length headers.

Should be interisting??
