Re: What Did You Do to Your Hotrod Today?

I do have a nagging message that always pops up with "service electrical system". It's possible there is something disabled in your ECM file that is causing the message. Sometimes if anti-theft or VATs is disabled in the tune on a stock vehicle it will cause messages like that. We can check yours s...

Re: What Did You Do to Your Hotrod Today?

Since you narrowed the scope of discussion to "Your Hotrod" and "Today", I don't have much claim. Most of my fleet is running well, but did just have a 2nd starter fail on the Z06. Time for some heat shielding. The faithful FRC is back with a stock LS6 engine. The Nova is ready for some action maybe...

Re: WTB: Small cam for ls daily driver

The only thing I would have to offer is a stock LS7 cam, but then you would have to swap to a front cam sensor cover Gen 4 timing set & extend the cam sensor harness.

I actually need 1 good tire of same size. If I end up buying 2 new tires I'll donate you the used one.

I used to boil my fuel in the tank on hot days. I added an Aeromotive fuel pump controller and I added a Derale cooler/fan in the fuel return line. I no longer boil fuel on hot days. Of course your results may vary. Fuel pressure will drive more lb/hr through the injectors. If your injectors are mar...

I have been very pleased with my Rick's tank. I left E85 in it for 3 years now without any sign of particles in the fuel filter. My fuel gauge has stopped working but I haven't determined what the root cause is yet. I bought just the tank and use an external Magnafuel 4303 pump. Doing it again I wou...

I've been gallivanting around in Baton Rouge this week. Chris is correct, the legend of dropped LS7 valves was all the encouragement I needed to pull the heads and send them off to Frankenstein for new bronze guides, new exhaust valves, springs, and port work. A medium duration cam from Cam Motion f...

I am using Fuel Injector Connection (the other FIC) 127 lb/hr in my Nova. They're pretty well max'd out a little over 1,000 rwhp on E85. They have good street characteristics and are a stainless steel body so no sticking or flow issues running E85 for the past 3 years. Do you research on E85 compati...

Interesting thread. Favorite colors can probably trace back to some twisted encounters with the mailman. Here's a big surprise - I like bright colors. I find white, pewter and silver to be boring. And I simply don't like black wheels (even though I'll probably put some on my black truck). Fortunatel...

Thanks Randy, but I've actually had to back off doing wrenching at my house. I simply do not have enough time anymore. Barely get things done on my own cars these days.

If you decide to tackle the cam swap I can lend you some wood rods to support the lifters, valve spring compressor, harmonic damper puller & installer, etc. Time however is something that I rarely have. Let's just say my car's coolant temp was still 130° when I started it up to come in to work this ...

I actually saw that one for sale and forwarded it to a friend a few days ago. Looks like a steal. That was tempting... I saw that same car and though about sending it to you I jumped on it pretty quick. I knew there were more than a few local folks that like to track Corvette ads. Already scanning ...
