HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

LS1 sensors

Post  nasomi on Sat Feb 11, 2012 5:09 pm

On the aftermarket oil pan is there a place for an oil level sensor? Is the air temp sensor? The stock pcm has to be modified, what sensors are deleted?

The oil level sensor is not needed or present on the oil pan that I sell. You delete sensors based on your needs, such as EGR, EVAP and rear O2 sensors. Every state is a little different about what is needed to pass inspections if you have them.

If I can find an 85.5 or 86 roller, no need to worry about such silly things as emissions, so it'll all be gone. This is a list I got from LS1tech.com that i'm trying to sort through:

Cam, rear of engine, behind valley cover - Need - $65
oil pressure, right beside cam sensor - Need - $40
crank sensor, behind and above starter - Need - $15
oil level sensor, in oil pan - Replacing oil pan with custom one, not sure how that's going to work
idle air control, in throttle body - New tb
throttle position sensor, in throttle body - new tb
air intake temp sensor, in air intake lid - Part of hte intake build
mass air flow sensor, in duct leading to throttle body - Part of the intake build
coolant temp sensor, in drivers side head above exhaust manifold - $20
map sensor, mounted on nipple on back of intake - $20

If you can let me know which ones I won't need it would be appreciated. I'm going to look at an ls1 motor tomorrow for $650, it's a long block with intake and coil packs, but no sensors because he swapped them to his 6.0, so I'll have to shop around. I planned an egr delete but I can't find the egr on the diagrams I'm looking at.

I'll probably be buying your oil pan and torque tube adapter because there's no alternative, but I'm on a severe budget for this project, with about 3k to spend including the roller and engine, so I'll have to be doing a lot of fab work myself. Lots of great resources here though, and the hard fabrications are available for the less skilled, making it quite easy.

So far this is my parts list:
Donor car: $800
LS1: $650
Misc sensors: $150
Throttle body: $100
C5 bell housing: $100
Torque tube adapter: $400
Engine mounts: fab
Headers: fab
exhaust: fab
oil pan: $450
Wiring harness: $150
PCM: $100 + programming cost
Alternator: $70
Power steering: unknown
Cooling: Unknown
AC: unknown
Clutch & related: Unknown, haven't looked into it yet

Raw materials for the fab work will probably be a few hundred, i'll be rebuilding hte engine as well, so this is going to take months, and with steady cash flow I'll buy a few things here and there as I go.

Seem like I'm missing anything?

In your list, you have over $1200 in engine and engine related parts that normally come with a complete pull-out. Can you not find an LS or LQ/LM engine complete for 1200?

The cheapest I've been able to find a complete LSx for is $1600, minus harness and pcm, and it's 1200 miles away. Locally there's nothing, at least that I know how to find. My search tools consist of craigslist and ebay. I called my scrap yard and asked them, $2200 for a complete motor. LT1's can be had for $800-1000 complete from what I can find.

That's an awesome site. Thanks, I will definitely be using that in the future. There's one for $1400, I'll have to call and see what all it includes. Craigslist and ebay occationally come through, but much better for small stuff.

Check out the salvage yard F-Part, they are in Bristol which is like an hour away from you i think. They have tons of stuff and considering you are within driving distance they might be more inclined to give you a deal on something. I believe the place Contemporary Corvette is the same operation, but as you can tell by the name they only deal in Vette's. Google either and you will get the homepage.

I am also looking around for a motor (LS1 or LS6 for me) and they have quite a few, though all are priced a bit high they seem like a pretty trust worthy place to do business with.

I have also been using Car-Part which is really helpful, though most of the motors i have called about are either beat to hell, already sold or were stripped for parts. One i looked at locally was listed as 'excellent' but it had a crushed intake manifold.. ugh.

The ls1 manifold around here on craigslist can be had for $120-150, there's a few of them within 50 miles. I will have to check out the salvage yard, the two that are closer to me are "you pull it", and people walk into it, grab a tire iron, and spend the day beating on and breaking stuff, making it difficult to find anything worth while. I found my engine, I just have to go get it, it's 400 miles away.
