    @Mike That's totally not your fault. The guy just wants to hook people in and then fleece them. No apologies needed. Beech Bend used to be my favorite track. Now I'm not feeling too fond of it for the bad business practices and lack of honest ethics.

    Well, time to fix a few issues and do a couple mods. First, I'm replacing that POS VARARAM turbulent heat sucker. From all my reading, it looks like Cold Air Inductions makes about the best power if I use the JRE scoop. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Smo75RWYXjzUfsZeyoilhCG0jPCzI6PBzmfOpGA_Ae4/edit#gid=0

    Negative. Tear down those non-stock parts on the Fox in to a pile and you got me beat by a long shot! The install is the hard part.

    Not saying your wrong, but nowhere does it say that on their site. https://www.texas-speed.com/p-6147-texas-speed-performance-1721-ratio-ls3-steel-roller-rocker-arm-set-w-roller-tip.aspx But if they do wear, I'll pop them off and have the bronze bushings installed.
  10. 2010 Camaro SS

    So I'm reading stock GM, CompCams and BTR trunions are sometimes prone to premature wear. Less than 1,000 miles on these? :eek: CompCams https://ls1tech.com/forums/generation-iii-internal-engine/1819234-straub-bushing-trunion-kits-17.html#post19278194 BTR https://ls1tech.com/forums/generation-iii-internal-engine/1819234-straub-bushing-trunion-kits-19.html#post19280493 Glad I got the TSP rockers...

    Found weights on the TSP rockers..
  12. 2010 Camaro SS

    That's each. @Tino you going to head swap the truck?
  13. Project #whitetrash

    Which is cheaper? A j/y 5.3L LSx truck motor with ebay turbo or a Cobra Jet? But if you hit the lotto and forgot to tell us, see the below. 2,000hp n/a? http://jonkaaseracingengines.com/shop/engines/kaase-830-c-i-pro-stock-ford/ Or something milder but just as cool? http://jonkaaseracingengines.com/shop/boss-nine-parts/custom-bulit-boss-nine/ http://jonkaaseracingengines.com/shop/engines/kaase-sohc-engines/
  14. Hope mine doesn't leak. That would suck!
  15. 2010 Camaro SS

    For n/a they already flow well from all my reading. Exhaust port needs more work than intake side, if it has to be done. One downside to L99 heads is I believe they have a heavier intake valve since they were not intended to rev as high as the LS3 because of DOD/AFM. So I need to address that once issue for sure. Maybe get a set of intake valves at the very least. Heads I've looked at are: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/nal-88958758 https://www.summitracing.com/parts/nal-19328743 https://www.summitracing.com/parts/tfs-32610002-c01 With my cam, these would flow about 377 cfm intake and 250 cfm exhaust I think: http://www.airflowresearch.com/260cc-ls3-cylinder-head/ https://www.mastmotorsports.com/collections/ls3-heads/products/ls3-255 Don't really think heads are worth it at this point.
  16. 2010 Camaro SS

    To do a cam on a L99, that is what it takes. Those DOD lifter are a ticking time-bomb in a performance application. I like to drive fast, race and rev high as this LSx pushrod engine can go. Pretty sure those lifters wouldn't have made it to 100k miles. If I deleted VCT, it would have been more parts. https://www.briantooleyracing.com/basic-vvt-delete-kit.html If the car was a 6 speed manual LS3 car, I could have done a simple cam, valve spring swap and trunion upgrade. The rockers were an extra on my build. Could have just upgraded the stock rocker trunions, but just went ahead and got the TSP roller tip pieces since I didn't have a way to press out the stockers. Plus, anything that saves me time is worth it. I just don't have a ton of free time right now. So them being already assembled is a plus.

    You already know the LSx makes old Fox bodies faster. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I might take you up on that! Will let you know asap! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Well, I'm about to attempt to start tuning this SS. First thing I'm going to do is get a cold start and idle log and try to fix the idle issues. It idles down and runs like it is missing or has a mild cam. It does this cold and at normal operating temps. An earlier scan with the MATCO showed something like 10% rich condition at times. I'm positive its the VARARAM intake confusing the MAF. If any of you know how to tune with HP, I could use all the tips and help you can offer. If you know anyone willing to chime in here and help, send them a link here.

    Lol, 1100lbs less weight is a lot. Put a LSx in there and see how fast it goes at that weight.

    That land yacht of mine stands no chance.
  22. These new cars are already good for alky. They have to be. E10 to E15 is all over the USA. Post 2005+ vehicles should have no problem with alky. That's when the good ol' US Govt mandated ethanol be blended in our gasoline. I've seen multiple cars on Camaro5 that have lived 3 or more years on E85, so no biggie. Plus... The sensor will allow me to run a tank of E85 and then switch back to 93 pump if I want. I don't have to run it 100% of the time.
  23. 2010 Camaro SS

    I just need the time and place, neither of which I have at the moment. Doubt I can get anything done before Mike's track day at this point. Might rent a storage garage and toss it together over the winter. Should be ready by next race season.
