    LT1 vs LS3 questions

    I bought a pull out LS3/TR6060 for my car that cost $2500. I did the conversion on the TR6060 with a kit Tick Performance used to sell for $500. It increases the torque rate for the TR6060 because it uses the Magnum mainshaft. Because I did it myself and not farmed it out it was cost...

    Camaro RS LS1 Build Thread

    I did my pump the same way with threading the outlets but I cut about 1/4" off the surface to give more room at the upper A-arm. Then I chose AN to Npt fittings so I can run 5/8 hoses to both. Vintage Air uses the same size for both hoses. I like your fittings.

    Butternut the Gumball Camaro

    I don't drive that fast, but I do like to keep up with freeway traffic. I had 4.56 in before the swap. Now I have 3.73's but I was used to shifting my C5 six speed for so many years that I'm not used to only 5 shifts. I am getting better. 😁

    '74 Z28 4spd - UK build

    Really nice car you have. It has a very healthy sound to it. Too bad you can't list what has been modified in that engine. It certainly didn't sound like that stock. Thanks for sharing

    Can’t get more high tech than this roadster shop 2nd Gen

    In Texas if you register a car over 25 years old as antique it doesn't get a safety inspection. You could not have a woking emergency/park brake.

    Hydraulic Clutch Conversion

    Am I missing reading the prices right. Ekler's is 119 and Classic Industries is 113. Might have been close to the difference in shipping. (Not) Just saying.

    I use this simple tool to get pinion depth on gears not marked. Put pinion bearing on with no shim and measure from the slot in the tool. Ratech Pinion Bearing Tool (*Edit) On that site is also a link for how to calculate the pinion depth on gears not marked. I do the math to double check...
