    VSS problems - What i've learned

    Figured id type this up quick in case someone goes down a similar path in the future. It will save you some effort! My problem: I want the ECM to get a valid VSS signal to improve driveability, but my trans only has a mechanical speedo output. Attempt #1: Order Dakota Digital SEN-01-4160 bolt...

    Found out why the new motor sounds like a vacuum cleaner...

    I just figured it was the design of my intake setup....so I pulled that completely off and it got worse. Turns out my IAC valve is stuck totally open. Doesnt work at all. I covered up the hole a bit and gave it some gas and wow it has throttle response now! Im guessing it might actually be...

    Who's using the BRP mounts?

    Just ordered some today. I am curious if they use the same bolt pattern as a stock mount? The frame side that is. Anyone know? I would think they would, but you never know. Thanks

    Driveshaft loop + X pipe...anyone?

    So is anyone running a driveshaft loop with an X pipe? Preferably a torque tech 2.5" system. I dont have the car here to look, but im sure its going to be a tight squeeze to say the least.

    Decisions, decisions...

    The 6.0 is coming out in a couple of months for sure. I just cant decide what to do with it. At a minimum, im doing heads/cam and leaning towards a set of Trick Flows. Not sure on cam yet. If I do that, ill probably just go 403 honestly. Then theres always the procharger option and the new...

    What would you do? - Intake swap

    I want to eventually swap out the truck intake on a budget which means I will likely be avoiding the FAST stuff. I am also not interested in aftermarket aluminum intakes either. Weiand, etc. I figured id go with an LS6 which means new injectors and fuel rail. I am almost positive my drive by...

    For those who have made the LSx swap so far...

    Looks like my ECM is fried on my DFI...I will most likely be making the LSx plunge soon unless they warranty this ECM. (Doubtful as its out of warranty now). I am just about done putting money into GEN I stuff. So to my point...For those that have done this swap: Would you do it all over...

    So I am running the 12" B-body/1LE brakes up front with a b-body master cylinder, but am still using the stock single booster. I really need to upgrade the booster... I tried a dual g-body booster from eBay, but it didnt work. The master wouldnt fit in it. I guess some of the duals were...
