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 …

The L33 has flat top pistons. Too much lift can cause issues. Also, LS1 Heads will probably cause an interference issue as well (smaller combustion chambers).

What computer are you using with the L33 guys? The pull outs available to me are all autos, which might be ok, might not (dunno). Would any drive-by-wire LS1 ecm work?

You can get a ls6 crate engine from gmperformanceparts for 5400.00 and they also offer a ls control kit that has the ecm, all sensors, maf and throttle, and wiring harness tagged with install instruction for projects, for around 970.00.

The engine will come with the caddy ctsv oil pan, and water pump, but I am ok with that since it is a new engine and control kit. This is the route I am going to take when I start my conversion. I am still in the detail collecting stage. I wish there was a detailed thread, start to finish ls conversion with all options listed along the way. That would be imensely helpfull.

I like the new home here, I think the renegade debacle was utter crap.

I will most likely go with a modified truck harness, cable operated throttle body on an LS1 intake, and the truck PCM (re-configured). The nice thing about the truck PCM is that it and the harness all reside under the hood. Since my car is track use only, that's a plus for me.

I also ended up going LS1 drive by cable setup on my L33.

As far as the crate engine discussion, I got my L33 for ~$1300 with 10k miles on it, f-body harness and computer with custom tuning (VATS, AIR, EGR, rear-O2 delete) for another $500, and all the accessories/pulleys/etc for about $600. So for 1/2 the $5k crate price, I fully dressed a low mileage aluminum pull-out. If I spent another $3k or so I could probably do some crazy mods like a cam, forced induction, etc, and murder a LS6, but then there's driveline problems... etc.

That said, if I had the dough to burn, I probably would have done the crate motor, and had someone else build it for me. Razz

I'm currently on track for a sub-$8k conversion for everything including the car. cheers

I would be burning LS7 dry sump dollars if I could.

Just to give even more options for folks, I was able to pick up an LM4 with 60k miles for 500 dollars. It ended up coming out of a Buick Rainier. The LM4 is basically the LM7, but with an aluminum block.
