I get to pick up the engine harness tomorrow. Bad news is the yard gave me a Cadillac Northstar ECM (same part number but different program) back when so I had to get another ECM. I guess I will ebay the Northstar one to try to recoup that. Looks like I will get away from the body and work on getting the fuel lines and exhaust hooked up. I will get it running next before I get back to the bodywork. I needed a break from sanding anyway. I hope old Frankenstein comes to life soon.
I have a 2007 LS4 ECM and PCM if you need it, Im in Austin...... Let me know if you want it...
I got the harness and ECM back yesterday. Should be ready to run. I still have a couple things to change but for a custom harness that had not been done buy Speed Scene he did a great job from LS knowledge and having to reverse most of it. It tucks away nicely and most of it fit great. The ECM and trans controller will be inside along with fuses and relays. I got some of it connected last night I hope to get the rest on tonight. I am still waiting for the MAF I had to order. This ECM has a lot is can do and the good news is if I decide I want to add boost latter the ECM is set up for it. If anyone that has a spare plug handy for a 98 Firebird gage cluster please let me know. I am also looking for a couple of dash parts and the console for 98 to 02 Firebird. I think I will make the door panels. Thanks, I also have to get a battery and run the cables along with water lines and fuel line.
Install looks really clean. Especially for one with no beauty cover yet.
Thanks, Not sure what to do about the cover. I did want the corvette covers but thinking if maybe making custom aluminum ones. I just hope to get it running soon. I would not have made it this far without the advice you gave me with Joe and his help with the axels and mounts. I also have others to thank for all the help and part numbers shared it helps speed up the process for us all.
I found a little time to take the gas tank back out today. I need to replace the fuel lines with longer hoses to fit the fuel filter. I plan to set it up like Fieroguru showed. I'm also kicking myself I had the cold air st up bought but it is way to big. Thinking if I can not make it work I wasted a couple hundred bucks.
I swaped the fuel filter around. I was going to finish the fuel line but I ordered the wrong an fittings. I keep ordering the wrong stuff. I guess I'm getting old. I ordered a radiator hose and it was a heater hose size. Same thing with my cold air intake it is huge not near the right size filter.
Been out of town for work. I did get the gas line done today.
I also got the emergency brake hooked back up still worked great with the oil filter mod in the cradle. At this point in the build it is just getting the little things here and there done. I want to hook up the radiator lines but not sure witch one goes to what side. I tried looking on the Internet but did not see much. I did see one build that has the radiator hoses done but it just does not look right to me. So I have to make sure before I do it. I still have to go buy a battery and get it installed up front.
I got one of the radiator hoses finished tonight. I have the hose to finish the other side so I hope to get it done tomorrow. I am trying to get something accomplished every day I can work on the car until I get to start it.
I cut the 2.8 tube and recycled it. I found a great mounting point for it.
I have one more picture that did not load I will post tomorrow. Time to go to bed.
I got the car to start today. Word of advice if you do this swap put your new plugs in before you put the motor in the car. Also if your engine has been sitting like mine for a few years get new injectors or have your old ones cleaned. Car starts using brake fluid but the injectors are stopped up so it will not run on its own. I now have to pull the injectors and see if I can some way get them working or get new ones. As I figured it is loud but the duel flow masters sound mean. I was glad Gianina was the one to turn the key when it first fired off. I have a transmission line leaking also. Notices once the car was running.
